I've been wondering if the developers could re-create the Miracle at Dunkerque (sp.?) for Forgotten Hope 2 when the Early-War Western European theatre comes around?

If you've played Project Reality's Extraction maps, then you've got a rough idea on how to do this (only it's a transport ship instead of an SUV). I propose a land/naval battle in which the British need to get the transport safely from Dunkerque to England before Dunkerque is captured by the Axis.

[COLOR=DarkSlateBlue]So, in short:[/COLOR] The Allies win by getting their transport from France to England. If the transport(s) are sunk, new ones will re-spawn in France.

Maybe for balancing it could be made so that the British need to get several transports to England or something, or that when the transport reaches England it re-spawns in France and needs to be brought to England again. Something like that.

The Axis wins by taking all French control points before the Allies can get their transport(s) safely to England.

Both sides will thus need to fight two battles, one on sea and in the air for the transports, and one on the ground for Dunkerque.

Or maybe the French attempt to hold the Germans at bay could be another map, and that the evacuation map could simply have Allied tickets automatically decrease, and an objective to get the transport across before tickets reach zero?

It's "Dunkirk". Otherwise, sounds interesting. Though you'd probably need a lot of people for a map like that to work. Don't know if it's possible to have "specific vehicle reaches point" as a victory condition.

It's possible in Project Reality, so it's possible in Forgotten Hope 2.

How about not having to transport anything at all, because that's just lame, and nobody (at least not me) would be driving the boat. Instead, it could be the objective for the Allies to just hold the Germans back, untill a certain time has passed. IMO, the transporting thing would not contribute anything to the map.

It's "let's cut the 'spam' and stay on-topic" in Norwegian:p.

Politeness, friend.

(...) and nobody (at least not me) would be driving the boat.

People drive the Liberty Ships in Forgotten Hope, when it's not even an objective to do so.

I would drive it, or at least man a flak- or deck gun.

IMO, the transporting thing would not contribute anything to the map.

It would add a naval portion to the map.

It'd also mean a change from the majority of the maps, where it's just "take the control points".

Why would this map have to be accurate to real life when every other map doesn't, Germans didn't win at Omaha beach, but they can on FH, and the UK didn't win at Arnhem, but they can in FH. Surely just a battle map would be better IMO.
