  Forgotten Hope 2 Mod Update - Supporting cast - Mods

Forgotten Hope 2 has updated today with their weekly news. This week; Supporting cast.
Quote:
Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope. Today close air support is considered vital for any mixed force operation. In World War II, however, the air forces of many countries were focused on strategic operations. But, at the beginning of the war, the Luftwaffe's force composition emphasized direct tactical support of the troops on the ground, rather than long-range strategic bombing.

No plane symbolized this emphasis better than the Sturzkampfflugzeug Junkers Ju 87, the "flying artillery" of the Wehrmacht. Although suffering from several defects, including a low top speed that made it vulnerable to enemy fighters, the Ju 87 (popularly known today as the "Stuka") excelled at pinpoint bombing of battlefield targets. During the early war period, when the Luftwaffe's fighters still dominated the skies, the Ju 87 was a devastatingly effective weapon. Later on, as control of the air slipped away, the JU 87's shortcomings became more obvious. Today we would like to present the first in-game screenshots of the Ju 87B2 dive-bomber bomber modeled by K96 and skinned by K96 and AceS.

Another vital supporting asset has always been transportation for supplies and reinforcements. The most common truck used by British forces was the Bedford 3 ton lorry. More than 70,000 3-ton Bedfords were produced between 1939 and 1945, in a variety of configurations and were used for all conceivable transport roles, including the movement of troops, horses, machine guns, and supplies. The Bedford was originally modeled by Mange, updated and tweaked for BF2 by Lobo, skinned by AaronAsh and Jimbob and Lobo, normal mapped by Lobo and given a brand-new set of tires by Rad.

That's all for today, but be sure to come back next week for another Forgotten Hope update. And don't forget to join us on IRC. Feel free to visit our public forums to discuss this update or other news.

Good job looks good

After FH 2 team is finished with it they need to make a FH 3 and go retail and sell it all they need is a game engine then it would blow EA's socks off Rock

What I think would be cool, is a map like the Battle of Britain for 1942, cuz it almost forced the Air Battle because of the huge body of water. Except down thing was there wasn't many planes. I mean...imagine, 40-50 planes going at it above. I mean, spread out the airfields are the two sides of the body of water. And have the battle over the ocean smile

any ideas on when this mod will ever be released? Seems like by that time the new game engines and technology will leave it behind again.

it will be realeased..........................When it it is ready, for a mod of this quality it takes time, thats why its worth the wait, from the oficial forums they are saying they hope to get it in by this year, but it may go on to 2007. Its worth the wait though.
