Hello everyone, I am new to these forums but have been playing Forgotten Hope for a long time. Let me start off by saying what an excellent mod it is and it makes BF1942 a million times better, and all for free!

Based on the mod I know that FH has some of the best modelers around, and when I came across this section of your forum I thought "why not give my two cents?"

Anyways, I am a huge Aviation and Naval fan, and my favorite map in the game is the battle of Midway. But, something is just not right when the American forces are using a British Battleship (the Prince of Wales).

And I thought to myself "It would be very cool if there were actual American Battleships in FH."

So I was wondering, would it be possible to make and American Battleship, such as the Iowa Class for FH? A battleship like the New Jersey would be an awesome addon for Forgotten Hope in Bf1942!

I know that probably all the FH developers are busy with the upcoming FH2, but IMO an Iowa Class battleship is just the perfect addon for an already perfect (well, very close to perfect ;) ) mod!

Thanks~

Unfortunately the Developers will not be releasing any more official content for FH1 0.7, as as you rightly stated, they are focusing 100% on FH2.

However there are several minimods in production, the most notable being FH Secret Weapons which may well add an Iowa if you talk to them.

I wouldnt mind seeing ships like Vorpostenboten, Minenräumboten. Not to mention more types of Motor Torpedo Boats and Motor Gun Boats. And German landing craft such as Pionierlandungsboten, Marinefährprahm, Siebel Fähre Last but not least Russian ships and Eastern Front amphibious operations. This aspect of the Eastern Front is entirely ignored, along with the Russian Navy. Wich is sad because there where quite a number of interesting amphibious landings in the Eastern Front. A few examples of Eastern Front amphibious operations: - The German assault on the Baltic islands (Dago, Ossel) in 1941. - Soviet Landing at Kerch 1941. - Soviet Landing operation on Oseleika 1943. - Defense of Saarema island 1944. The germans managed to repulse several air and land attacks, despite the fact that the defenders where small in numbers. - Operation Delphin 1944. A German attempt at evacuating troops from Saarema Island. 25% of the survivors where rescued. There are many more amphibious landings operation. The Germans where even planning a amphibious landing for Anti Partisan purposes. For more information regarding landings see this Link, Soviet Amphibious operations in the Black Sea 1941-1943. A few examples of Russian ships: Motor Torpedo Boat Tupolev G-5 Komrad Tender. A surprisingly effective ship. They were used in landing operations on Ladoga Lake against German/Finnish troops in 1942-1944, on Peipus Lake in Estonia, on Baltic Sea (Vyborg landing operation 1944, Moonsund landing operation 1944), on Vistula river in Poland I quote:

Admiral V. F. Tributs: "We were saved by famous tenders, these simple self-propelled vessels, created in the heavy blockade winter with the hands of the starving workers in cooperation of our sailors. Tenders made 10048 voyages for the campaign of 1942! Crews of tenders boldly furrowed waters of Ladoga through the storms, under the fire of enemy aircraft. Into besieged Leningrad they delivered 158.086 tons of foodstuffs and ammunition, 98.800 soldiers ".

Just my .02c

I would do the South Dakota class.

Smaller, more agile, almost same armor protection as Iowa class, 16"/45 main guns (Iowa carried 16"/50 main guns).

And South Dakota class saw action off Savo Island. Iowa class was never involved in BB vs BB actions.

I do agree Cruisers and Destroyers would be a better choice.

I think we should focus less on ships like Cruisers and Destroyers and more on other ships such as MTB's, Landing ships, and the like. And seaplanes, ofcourse. More attention should be spend on Axis and Soviet ships aswell. :)

Thanks everyone! Yes, I thought that the FH developers might be done with 0.7 for now and focusing with FH2. Do you know where I could contact FH Secret weapons?

Cruisers and destroyers would also be cool. I'd lean more towards Cruisers since we already have a Fletcher model in the game, A cruiser like the Indianapolis would be cool.

South Dakota class is another good idea. They look very similar to Iowa class and got in Battleship vs. Battleship engagements, was the North Carolina by chance a South Dakota class? It's a very awesome ship, but I must say my Favorite American battleship is The New Jersey, I took a tour on it and it is amazing!
