Description
CSAT has retreated and the AAF is defeated, but the story on Altis is far from over...

-------------------------------

Please remember to rate content you like.

The mod is vanilla friendly (no other mods needed), but it inherits alot from DLC content. Some features might not work without ownership of DLC's.

MY FIRST MISSION:
LINK

-------------------------------

OVERVIEW
After East Wind is set in the time a few years after the East Wind campaing on Altis, ending with a NATO victory. The AAF and FIA are disbanded, and the Newly formed New Altis Army, along with the help of a small contingent of the Hellenic Armed Forses are working hard to bring back stability, safety and public trust to the new government, under the supervision of the unarmed multi-national United Nations Truce Observation Force In Altis And Stratis (UNTOFIAAS). Unknown to the Altisians, CSAT is not done with the mediterranean, and are undergoing Apex Protocol operations in Altis by funding anti-government dissent.

I'm expanding and updating the mod in small pieces whenever I find time to work on it.

-------------------------------

The mod add the following factions:

New Altis Army (NAA)
The new de-facto military of the new Altian government. The old Aegean pattern that the AAF used is being replaced with the new Altis pattern camouflage (ALPAT), as the new government does not want to be associated with the old civilian murdering army.


Hellenic Armed Forces (HAF)
A small coalition of peacekeepers from Greece to help the new government in restoring trust and peace in the region. Greeks work in a battallion sized joint Grekko-Altian unit, named Task Force Nike.


United Nations Truce Observation Force In Altis And Stratis (UNTOFIAAS)
After the Ceasefire in late 2035, UN military observers were deployed to monitor the CSAT withdrawal as well as the disbanding of the AAF and FIA. UNTOFIAAS is still present on Altis, now observing the fragile peace. Currently the unarmed observers come from four countries: Canada, Finland, Russia and China.


Myrimidones Inc.
A newly formed multi national private defence corporation based on Altis. The founders of the company are ex- military personel who saw combat in the East Wind conflict, and lots of its hired personel are made up of Altian, American and British ex soldiers. Myrmidones Inc. is currently providing training for the NAA, and security services for domestic and foreign entities investing in the rebuilding of Altis.


West Altian Militia (WAM)
Not everyone in the FIA enlisted to the NAA when it was formed. Many Altians still distrust government authorities, and many militias have been formed across the island nation to form a "balance of power". While not the only one, the WAM is by far the largest and best organized, with many private gunowners having heavily invested in weaponry and gear. As many militia leaders are friends and former men at arms with many NAA officers, the relationship between the army and the militias are complicated. After Al Sirae began their terror attacks and the mandate for the Greek peacekeepers was extended, the militias have grown significantly, leading to tentions rising between them and the Army.

Al Sirae
Of all the militias formed on altis, Al Sirae is the most closely monitored and dangerous according to the Altian government. Translating as "the struggle" from arabic, this loosely organized paramilitary is not just an other militia but also a political party, made up of ex AAF soldiers still loyal to the old government, CSAT supporting citizens and marxist revolutionaries. While the party denies the existence of its armed wing, it has been accused of many terror attacks, some even on UN observers, and are seen by many as the largest threat to the stability in the region. Western intelligence suggests that the group is accepting monetary and military funding from CSAT.

About NAA strenght and structure
Units that I choose to add and gear I choose to assign are all based on my subjective vision of what a post war Altian military would look like, with a few artistic liberties thrown into the mix.

The NAA is signifigantly smaller and weaker in equipment than the old AAF, as most of the Altians vehicles and weapons were destroyed in the conflict with NATO. However, its officers and staff being mostly made of former FIA combatants, they are far more professional and experienced than the arrogant "greenbacks" as the Altians were knows as, especially in light infantry warfare and counter insurgency operations. The Army's main fighting strenght is in it's 2nd light infantry battallion, but the it also has a single elite mechanized infantry company. The NAA has officially no armoured units nor heavy artillery, though NATO estimates them to have a few tanks in hidden reserves. To standardize ammunition as much as possible, he Mk200 light machinegun has been replaced with LIM-85 as the standard infantry squad machinegun. Because Altis and Stratis are both drowned in unexploded ordnance and mines from the coflict, the NAA has trained large numbers of EOD specialists.

The NAA has a relatively large corp of Military Police, both to help policing the nation and to keep their own troops in line.

All specialized gear and air assets have been issued to Force Hades, Altis' special force. Details about the force's size is classified, but it is estimated to be approximately the size of one platoon plus support elements.

I like how you went pretty deep with the whole backstory of the mod

@Lord_Lansworth Thank you :)

@Popestar That means a lot to me, thank you so much. I'm really glad too how the mod has grown. The whole thing started with an random inspiration to check if I can make my own custom camouflage show up in the game, which then turned into an obsession to study camoflage theory and create something effective for Altis terrain, which resulted in ALPAT. While creating the code I kind of learned new things about modding which then gave inspiration to expand the thing into a full whole project. To know that there are people who have been here from initial release is really humbling and warming. :)

I've said it before, and I will say it again. This mod is beyond great. I've been following it since its intial release and it has come such a long way. After all this time it has remained a must have for my unit's mod list. I love ArmA's lore and this mod just fits into the puzzling scenery behind Altis and Stratis so well it is canon worthy. I know you are busy but maybe one day we'll see you expand on Tanoa haha. Anyways, thank you for this mod. It is truly a gift to the ArmA community.

Wonderfull content here, I think it is mostly a narative driven one with a story which has clearly been thought into which is wonderful for people like me who love a flavour of narative in missions and this one has clearly been thought over, Narative wise. Love the work keep it up.

@OutOfScope Wow, absolutely! I'll link your config on the description once you have it uploaded :) And thank you

@lanassa, great work on the factions, and the mission. I have made AI Sirae faction Alive compatible(and also moved it to INDEP). With your permission, I'd like to upload the configs to steam workshop. Thank you.

@kamdog0614 Thank you. Working on jets :)

@Reed are you trolling? A little more context would be helpful...
