Description
tl;dr IDF, ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram, Abu Sayaf, African Militia and Cartel units, no other addons required.

This is a small set of simple factions with no dependencies on other mods. The mod includes IDF, ISIS, Taliban, Boko Haram and Abu Sayaf factions. Obviously some compromises had to be made to avoid 3rd-party dependencies. As such, some units use weapons Bohemia weapons instead of the real-world system (for example, the Titan AA launcher instead of Stingers). Other systems are just reconfigured Bohemia assets (for example, the Namer is just a renamed IFV-6c). The mod includes some dishdashas and pakols imported from Arma 2 and some retextured uniforms and shemags. There are also some headbands with hidden selections.

The IDF config has some comments which may be useful for people new to modding. I encourage anyone who wants to get started modding to try editing the configs (to give the units their preferred weapons and vehicles, for example). I will be able to provide some support. The mod is provided under APL-SA.

A more expanded version of this mod is my Middle East Conflict mod (which requires CUP and Teriyaki's Uniforms).

Hopefully I can help you generate more patreon income by helping grow the factions. It is something Arma is kind of lacking right now, the proper factions for special forces campaigns and missions.
Diveyez Feb 20 @ 3:42am 
Drongo, I just started making factions that line up with what you are doing, are you willing to collaborate?
Diveyez Feb 20 @ 3:36am 
If you truly want to make your own factions just use the ALiVE Orbat Creator.
This will speed the process up, tutorials on youtube.

Good mod! I noticed that when using ISIS as opfor in dynamic recon ops, some units seem to use the vanilla survival gear with the scuba fins. It looks a little out of place,
