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.

It would be a nice goal to be done with then next release by the end of this year. However I think It will take us a bit longer than that. We are a very small team that is working on the mod. But we are committed to finishing it and I promise you it will be worth the wait!

Right now there are two playable factions, the Israelis and the Egyptians. In the next release we will be adding another faction and in future releases we will be adding even more! The Egyptians have MI-4 helicopters. MI-8 helicopters will be added in the next release.

The Israelis conceded the Siani region to Egypt after the Yom Kippur war as a good faith gesture. The Egyptians never fully recaptured the Sinai desert at all. The Egyptians, after they crossed the Suez, set up an excellent air defense "umbrella" but, after finally repulsing a large Israeli counter attack, moved out into the desert. They were immediately destroyed by Isreali air power which had been waiting for its opportunity. The Israelis then proceeded to bypass Egyptian positions on the bank of the Suez before sneaking across the said canal and attacking the Egyptians rear, taking out most of the Egyptian SAMs as a result. The M-50-M51 "super" Sherman was never high tech or advanced. It was made in Israel, not Europe, with help from the French. The t-55 was just as good as the m-51-50 o paper, but the Egyptians lacked the knowledge to appropriately use them. The t-62 and its belligerents were excellent tanks. They, contrary to what you have said above, were never used by the Egyptians during the six-day war, the war of attrition or the Yom Kippur war. It was used by the Syrians, in the Golan heights, incorrectly as the Syrians used their t-62s and 55s as "spam" tanks. The mig-19 was on par with most of the IAF's planes. The mig-21 was slightly superior to most of the IAF's planes. The mig-15 was mostly obsolete but it still performed admirably. The Skyhawks used by Isreal during the Arab-Israeli conflicts took heavy losses due to their low penetration speed. The mi-8 was a rather good helicopter and it was not "old and weak". Neither the US or the USSR helped either side much other than transporting equipment like you said. Contrary to what you have said above, the Israelis technically won all three conflicts. I don't see where you got your facts about Egypt winning the war in '73 although I suspect, and I am probably wrong in saying this, that your comment has something to do with national pride. Do not, under any circumstances, get the impression that I support Israels occupation of the west bank or its willingness to enter conflict with its neighbors. Your post just was politically incorrect so I had to "correct" it to the best of my ability.

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.
