Part A: Dear Players, Admins and Visitors,
the Forgotten Honor Campaign 17 "Darkest Hour"
concluded with a decisive victory of the
2. Panzerdivision |2PzD|
31st Canadian Brigade Group [31BG].
In 14 battles and a few more weeks of planning, preparing, organizing and finally fighting over the custom
made FHT maps, the tide went back and forth. The Canadians, after a defeat in the first battle, beat the
Axis and stayed in the lead. Tough battles ensued, like the combined marine and airborne Allied invasion
on Gela, where the Axis only with highest efforts managed to beat the Canadians back. (Below)
The Allied airborne invasion during the battle for St.Marie Du Mont (Below) failed. After Canada won a slim victory
in the battle to control Montebourg Station, their succeeding defeat in the forests around Mont Castre hit them heavily
and burning Sherman wreckages littered the woods. In a defensive battle around Hill262, the Axis lost while managing
to exert a high price in blood on the Canadians. But the 2.PzD's lead in the campaign score was secured - for a while.
That is until their crushing defeat in the very buggy landscape around the Dutch Border, which saw players
of both teams "deported" from the battleground time and again. Here, the Canadians managed to almost
close the gap unto 9 score points. But in a tremendous effort of preparation, late night discussions and
trainings all through the last 2 weeks of the campaign, the Axis team rallied around their HQ Command.
They fought an attritional battle for the city of Metz and broke the Canadian Army's will to fight. (Below)
In the final battle for Operation Nordwind, the heroic Canadians fought bravely, but their weakened forces
were unable to stem the wave of the rolling Axis 2.PzD, who delivered a flexible offensive and a crushing
defeat to the Allies, winning the campaign.
We thank every soldier, officer, the headquarters and especially the administration team of the FHT
campaign around Papillon, Viktor2a5 and Quicksilver for their enduring organization over rough weeks
that cost every participant a lot of strength, nerves and fighting spirit. The hot weather may have
contributed. We won't forget these great months! The next FH2 campaign will start later this year.
Part B: The enlistments for the Forgotten Hope Secret Weapons (FHSW mod for BF1942) campaign have opened
and the Axis and Allied teams are calling YOU to arms! Battles will commence on Fridays 18.00 UTC and the first scrims
are beginning this week. Sign in here if you are interested:
Part C: The Community Mappack "CMPv2.0" is in the works and we need your
help to find bugs! Download the maps here:
You receive an "fh2" folder. As usual, move this folder into your BF2 installation folder, into the
"/mods" folder and place it NEXT to the existing "fh2" folder (not inside). You will be asked to
replace, overwrite, include. Answer all questions with "yes".
Then join the FH2 CMPv2.0 PUB.TESTING Server,
We will hold a public test session this Sunday 18.00 UTC.
We hope to see you on game servers and Teamspeak for that.
Please post bugs that you find in this forum, each map has its own thread.
Ask questions here, as usual.
Thank you for reading,
for the  team,
