We would like to kick off this update with some special news. Many mods never make it to release, despite having talented, hardworking people on the team. One such mod was Finland at War, which was a Half-Life 2 modification about the conflict between Finland and the Soviet Union in World War II. The FaW team made a lot of great models and skins before they decided to stop production. When they decided to offer the work they had done so far to Forgotten Hope 2 we were both honored and excited to be offered so many attractive models and skins.

To close today's news we have some more statics to show. Duke of Holland has kept busy with creating a water well and the El Alamein train station. We beg your pardon that we just placed it somewhere in the endless open desert - but this one is still red hot from the forge and no mapper has given it a home yet. We'd also like to use the opportunity to present the El Alamein signposts created by Lobo.

Part wrote: Most of the work was not appropriate for the North African Theater, but there was an exception, which we are happy to show you today. Finnish as well as British Forces used the Boys Antitank rifle, so it is the one item from Finland at War that will appear in the first release of FH2. This 5-shot magazine, bolt-action rifle fired .55 inch (13.9 mm) caliber ammunition and had an effective range of almost 300 m, while it penetrated up to 20 mm at 100 yards. This made it somewhat useful against more lightly armored early tanks, but it became progressively less effective against their later, more heavily armored replacements. More than 60.000 were built. The FH2 Boys Rifle was modeled by Ripa of Finland at War and skinned by McGibs
