31 items
Special Forces Faction [SFF] that adds the Israeli Navy's Special Forces unit, the Shayetet 13 (שייטת; Flotilla-13) and is based on sources from 2015 through to January 2017.

Historical Info-

The groups role is as the Israeli Navy's elite naval commando unit, and are among the primary special forces units of the IDF. Founded in 1948, it's existence was only revealed in 1960 to the public. S-13 has been known to operate in similar roles and missions to the US Navy SEALS.

The Faction-

S-13 is a naval, ground and air-based Special Forces unit. The soldiers carry the compact MTAR rifle as standard, with the full length TAR-21 and M4A1 being used by some forces. The standard machinegun is the Negev NG7 'Commando' pattern LMG. The S-13 are organised into team of 'raid' elements which are fireteam to squad sized, and can be supported by divers, air support and APC's. S-13 wear flat OD uniforms and gear, with Opscore helmets and are based on 2015-2017 photographs and videos.

Specialist Elements-

Shayetet's role as the Naval special forces means it had diver teams and SDV delivery vehicles for water-bourne insertions, and it also has a recon element with supressed weapons and ghille suits.


The Shayetet are supported by a 'Stealth Yanshuef' helicopter (Israel is the only nation apart from the US known to operate the Ghosthawk in real life) and they have a heavy assault team supported by Namer APC.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name S13 ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
Discussion page and updates/ WIP logs will be posted here before they hit the Workshop.

It'd be greatly appreciated if you made a Cold War era IDF faction

but there really isn't a working regular idf mod to complement it
maybe you can ask the others permission to use their half baked stuff and integrate it?

I haven't planned to expand this mod to the entire IDF, my focus is mostly on SOF or irregular/OPFOR groups rather than doing standard armies.

hey do you mind expanding this mod to the rest of idf?
i can't really find a finished idf mod in a3 with all the tool you need in combined arms

great work! I wonder if you would like to create some mission scenarios based on these factions for a potential contemporary conflict between Israel and Lebanon amidst the Syrian Civil war... that would be awesome!

Hey I love your work, particularly the mosh of various units with quality weapon mod (SMA). I was wondering, how did you go about creating your own units based on gear from other mods that can be implemented in zeus?
