Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2. Along with several announcements, this week's update will feature a render of a brand new German support weapon. Enjoy!

Our first and only render for today is of the largest weapon ever to be classified as an infantry gun. It is the 15cm schweres Infanterie Geschütz 33 (sIG 33)!


The sIG 33 was essentially a 150mm artillery gun, which was designed to provide close-range, supporting fire to infantry units. The gun itself was of conventional design, with large wooden, and then later, steel wheels. It also features included solid rubber tires, an air brake, and could fire a host of ammunition including HE, smoke, hollow-charge rounds. The most interesting however, was the Stielgranate 42 round, which consisted of a finned projectile still attached to the driving rod. Its primary use was not as an anti-tank round, but as a demo charge for clearing various strongholds. From 1936, all the way through to the end of war 1945, approximately 4,600 sIG 33s were produced. The 15cm schweres Infanterie Geschütz 33 was made by Kraetzer.


Yesterday, on Saturday the 10th, our awards and stats system began tracking our 10,000th player! This is quite and accomplishment for us on the development team, and we'd like to thank all of our fans for their support!

We would also like to let everyone know that the next FH Game Night is coming up later this month, and will take place on the 24th of September. While this is still a few weeks off, you can vote for which maps you'd like to play here, and be sure to check our forums for more information.


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