Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. We are finally back with new content to show off, and today we have some brand new wheeled vehicles for your viewing pleasure. We also have an announcement regarding the new FH1 Forgotten Honor campaign.

First up we have the Citroen 11CV civilian car. The Citroen Traction Avant as it was also called, was a four-wheel luxury car produced by the French manufacturer, Citroen. A staggering 760,000 were produced from 1934 to 1957. Innovative for its time, the Citroen 11cv boasted an advanced suspension and the first front wheel drive for a car sold on the European mass car market.


Due to the lightweight design of the car, it was able to reach speeds of 62 mph (100 km/h). During World War II, it was especially popular with many organizations, most notably the French Army, the Gestapo, and the Wehrmacht. Players will be able to find the Cirtoen 11cv with both the civilian and Germany Army paint jobs. It was modeled and skined by Herc.

Next on the list is another wheeled vehicle, however this one was specific only to the German forces during World War II. May we present the German Sd.Kfz. 231. The 231 was an 8-wheeled armored car that first saw action during the invasion of Poland and the Battle of France. They also saw combat later on in the Eastern Front and in North Africa, however the extreme conditions of both locations proved too severe for the vehicle.

The Sd.Kfz. 231 was armed with a 2cm KwK 30 L/55 gun and an additional MG34 machine gun. With 8-15mm of armor, this armored car could travel at speeds up to 53 mph (85 km/h). The Sd.Kfz. 231 was modeled and skinned by Toddel.

That's all for this week, but be sure to come back next time for another update. Until then, feel free to visit our IRC channel and our public forums to discuss this update and other news.
