This modification is developed on a when-it's done approach, so asking for a release date will get you nowhere. Updates may be sparse, but we assure you, the modification is not dead.
Hello, and welcome to Israeli Defense Force: Fight for Independence, a Total Conversion modification for the PC game Battlefield 2 (A.K.A. BF2). 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.

Hello to all soldiers on the battlefield and IDF:FFI fans,
As you have seen on our facebook page before, something is coming… We always see some users who think just because of our name we dont care about our other faction, for all those trolls we have an update which only has content for the Egyptian army. One of the toys we have to show you today is the Akaba, another variant of the Port-Said, showed in one our updates from June 2011. The Akaba is a modified and simplified version, with a slightly shorter barrel and without a barrel jacket. Additionally, the folding butt stock has been replaced by a telescoping wire butt stock.
Also we have finished our Russian beast, the always feared tank-buster called Samochodnaja Ustanowka 100 or commonly known as SU-100. It was developed in 1944 and used extensively in the last year of World War II, decimating many German tank units. After World War II it stayed in duty for many decades in armies around the world, including Egypt. Together with our previously published IS-3 the egyptian army will be a serious threat to the Isreali counterparts. Credits for the SU-100 are going to our friends at Battlegroup: Frontlines, who have donated their awesome model and texture.
Well, we have shown you some equipment for the egyptian soldiers, but what do the guys look like? Its time to reveal this secret and show you the screens of our own egyptian kits, made by our modding dinosaur SPYKER. I need to donate him some lines, as he is like our handyman. There is nothing in the moddingbusiness he cant fix, and it seems like no model of IDF:FFI he wasnt involved. Today we will focus on the Anti-Tank kit ant the Engineer, the other kits will be shown in our next updates, so be prepared.
If you want to see the other kits before everybody else make sure you like our facebook page, also you can contact the developers directly. Tell us what you think about our work and what you want on the battlefield - we listen to your feedback!
We hope you have enjoyed this update and you are already exited, look forward to our next one…
