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.

The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 (NATO reporting name: Fishbed) is a supersonic jet fighter and interceptor aircraft. The MiG-21 was produced in huge numbers was developed into a number of variants and was exported widely to over 60 countries. It was a lightweight fighter, achieving Mach 2 with a relatively low-powered afterburning turbojet. Given a skilled pilot and capable missiles, it could give a good account of itself against contemporary fighters.

The MiG-21 was used extensively in the Middle East conflicts of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s by the Egyptian Air Force, Syrian Air Force and Iraqi Air Force. The Arab air forces where stuck a horrible blow in the opening attacks of the Six Day War. Egypt lost around 100 out of about 110 MiG-21s they had, almost all on the ground. Many of the Mig-21's destroyed in 1967 were early first generation F-13 variants. The Soviet Union re-supplied the Arab air forces with more modern 2nd and 3rd generation Mig-21 variants like the PF, FL and MF variants. These had better engines and avionics and were the best planes to the face the Israeli air force in the War of Attrition and Yom Kippur wars.

The Egyptian began to camouflage their aircraft after the Six Day War. They used a wide range of camo patterns and colors. Here we show one of the most common types with tan, brown and green. The amazing Mig-21 model and texture were created and shared with us by the legendary clivewil from the AIX2 mod.

Spyker has also updated our K-13 missile to be even more realistic than it was before, check out the detail on this thing!

Although not know for being able to carry a huge or varied weapons load compared to other aircraft, we will have different variants of the Mig-21 in our next release.

The basic version will be armed with a drop tank, two 23 mm canons and four K-13 missiles.

Is there any way to add more bots and more tickets?

For example: 1000 tickets and 80 bots in total (40 for each team)

I tried it and it works perfectly. A pity that the teams are 53 vs 48, because clearly it is not balanced.

Also, will the new update have 3D iron-sights instead of the default 2D ones?

To the first question, I believe maybe they are aiming for a 2018 summer release, if everything else can get finished.

The weapons for the most part are being updated too with many coming from Project Reality, Battlefield Korea, and BattleGroup Frontlines mods. So they are pretty much set on getting nice weapons models with great animations and 3d iron sights.

I am going to be sending them an awesome PPS43 and brand new model of a newly exported PPSH-41 that will be right at home in the mod.

Okay, that's great! Will a Beta be released before the official 2.0 release?

A Beta sounds like a good idea. The next release, v0.20, will focus initially on the Sinai Front of the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

We want to issue a patch later to add the Syrian and Iraqi armies that fought on the Golan Heights during the Yom Kippur War. We hope by focusing on the Sinai Front first we will be able to issue the next release faster.

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.
