The Hadron Forward Calorimeter of CMS is going through a complete Phase I upgrade. The current photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are being replaced with thinner window, higher quantum efficiency, four-anode photomultiplier tubes. The new PMTs will provide better light detection performance, a significantly reduced background and unique handles to recover the signal in the presence of background. This report will describe the nature of the essential upgrade elements with supporting beam test results and the status of the upgrade progression.
