Hello, and welcome to Israeli Defense Force: Fight for Independence, a Total Conversion modification for the PC game Battlefield 2.
What we aim to achieve with this mod is to immerse the player into the historic wars involving Israel, Syria, Egypt, and Jordan, which are the 6-Day War, the War of Attrition, and the Yom Kippur War. The player will be able to play as a common soldier, crewmember, or pilot in these wars. The mod will feature historically accurate equipment such as the famous Russian AK-47, the fearsome SO-4050 bomber, the menacing IS3 and M48 tanks, and much, much more. Also, the maps will recreate actual battles that happened in these wars, to complete a historically-accurate and immersive modification. IDF:FFI is also a member of the acclaimed cooperative gaming studio Black Sand Studios.

As we all know, that period in the region was one of the most politically sensitive times ever. Many innocent people had lost their lives at that time. Some may look at our modification name and think that we are biased towards the Israeli side. That is not true, at all. As a team, we do not intent to talk politics or choose sides, but portray, in video game form, the battles that happened.

To reach these goals we always looking for nice fans, who would like to apply as a developer or betatester. Keep an eye on the forums to see the progress of the mod.

Also, please visit our Facebook Page for exclusive updates and extra information.

NOTICE: This mod does not mingle with politics of any kind. Any post containing political, racial, or religious content will be deleted immediately.

The 'little one'

The 9M14 Malyutka (Russian; little one, NATO reporting name: AT-3 Sagger) is a manual command to line of sight wire-guided anti-tank guided missile system developed in the Soviet Union. It was the first man-portable anti-tank guided missile of the Soviet Union and is probably the most widely produced ATGM of all time.

The first wide spread combat use was by Arab armies during the initial phases of the Yom Kippur War.Later in the war, the Israelis adopted new tactics and learned to neutralize the Sagger threat. In total, Saggers knocked out more than 800 Israeli tanks and other combat vehicles during the war.

The 'big one'

The KSR-2 cruise missile was shown in a previous update. It was a very large early cruise missile, similar to todays cruise missiles. I think in game we will have it be guided to it's target by a co-pilot of the carrier aircraft. Here we have a different view of the missile mounted to it's carrier aircraft. Can anyone guess what the carrier aircraft is?! It is something that we are really excited to try and get into the game. We will have more updates on it as we progress.

We will, but not in the next release which will focus on Yom Kippur war. We actually got a really great AMX-13 model recently, I will post an image of that. We will also be adding a new army faction in a future release that also used the AMX-13 against Egypt in 1956!

Yes,when I saw all that BEAUTIFULL models you made.... I just needed to give feedback so you can improve mod. The main point was that it MUSNT look BF2ish. Changes in all vievs are most important and also details. As you can see in feedback, that tutorial from FH2 will be usefull,that one with pictures- NO PLACE FOR EMPTY CORNERS!

This mod is out to a great start! Love the content so far. Big fan of the historical mods, way too many “modern combat” mods out there. Obviously a lot of room for improvement, but what is here so far is really good. The vehicles, especially the tanks are some of the best I have seen I have seen in a BF2 mod outside of FH2 of course (class by themselves). Can’t wait for the Israeli aircraft and some epic air battles. Keep up the good work guys.
