[COLOR=burlywood]Did you guys start work on that before news of DICE's Secret Weapons expansion? Or did Secret Weapons spawn the addition of that one? No matter the answer, it looks great, folks. Flying wings :stallard:

The Horten was finished back in December of last year. It was Section8's and he had never released it. He doesn't do modding for BF anymore and I had requested that we could use his finished and unfinished models for the mod and so there they are. There are a couple more that he did we will be including.

[COLOR=burlywood]Awesome, Mange. I thought it was cool that you took what I felt was one of the worthy ideas of Secret Weapons and had it in Forgotten Hope. If you'd come up with that even before DICE had announced it with Secret Weapons I was going to be more impressed and indeed I am now that I know you did in fact have it in the works long ago. Just another reason why Forgotten Hope is in line to become a pinnacle release amongst the BF mod community.[/COLOR]

And as we all can see, the Go229 in Secret Weapons is just a crappy and half-assed model with too many things done wrong.. :rolleyes:

Late modification of Ho-229. It's not Ho-229 V2 or V3, maybe nightfigter (but where is a radar?!:uhoh: ). Ugly stuff.:smokin:

[COLOR=burlywood]I believe DICE said it was the later 2-seater version. But I could be wrong. Regardless, I like theirs too... :eek: Historical accuracy be damned, it just looks cool. :p

Edit: Went and found the DICE info I was talking about. "When the U.S. took the Gotha factory, it is rumored that U.S. forces found a partially constructed two-seat version of the Ho 229. It is that two-seater version that we've chosen to recreate in Secret Weapons." [/COLOR]

[COLOR=burlywood]One day someone should take the Secret Weapons 229 and the FH 229, put them in the same mod or whatever and have them duke it out for flying wing dominance. :p [/COLOR]
