Afghan National Army and Commandos [RHS]

In 1 collection by (4SFG) jarrad96
Special Operation Forces Factions [RHS Edition]
14 items
Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the Afghan National Army (ANA) and the ANA 2nd Commando Battalion- 'Thunder'. The faction, both the ANA Army and the Commandos, are based on 2007 to 2010 photgraphs- for the Commandos that means pre-ANASOC time period.

Note this version is dependant on RHS Escalation. If you would prefer different dependancies there is a SMA version also available. They are not compatible with each other and cannot be enabled at the same time.

Historical Info-

Commando units were formed in the Afghan Army in early 2007, and perform similar roles to the US Army Rangers. They often serve alongside other allied SF units, who serve as commanders and advisors, or as support, for the ANA Army or Commando forces.

The Faction-

The Afghan National Army makes up the bulk of the infantry force of the faction- they wear an older style uniform in M81 Woodland camo with older flat OD vests and light headwear, with some helmets, and carry a mix of Kalashnikov rifles and AR pattern rifles like M16's and M4A1's, with the PKM being the primary infantry machinegun.
The ANA have no standard issue sidearm, so pistols vary from M1911's, M9's, Makarovs and some Commandos carry the Glock 17.

Specialist Elements-

The ANA 2nd Commando form the Special Forces element of the faction, and are equiped with much more modern gear, such as M4A1's and M249 SAW's as standard, with Crye Gen 3 Uniforms and custom plate carriers, Opscores, Night Vision googles and IR lasers. They also have more access to magnified optics, supressors and IR devices like strobes.


The Army is supported by multiple Troop tranport or 50. Cal Technical's, with transport trucks and the M1117 Guardian MRAP donated from US forces also available.

The Afghan National Army are grouped as 'Infantry' units, and the Commandos are 'Special Forces'.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio, ACE3 and ALiVE support (faction name ANA ) The ANA and ANA 2nd Commandos are an INDEP faction.

Set ALiVE unit type to 'infantry' to spawn ANA, and to 'S.F' to spawn Commando teams.

I might yes. I'm just trying to make sure they look different to my other factions, so that's why they are going to armed with a mix of weapons including the AUG, as that hasnt been used by any other factions yet.

Very nice! I know you're mostly just coverting old factions to RHS, but do you think you'll ever end up doing that Pakistani SSG faction that you mentioned a while ago?
