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.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk is a single seat subsonic carrier-capable attack aircraft developed for the United States Navy in the early 1950s. The Skyhawk was designed and produced by the Douglas Aircraft Company's famous engineer Ed Heinemann. Heinemann opted for a design that would minimize its size, weight, and complexity. The aircraft's five hardpoints support a variety of missiles, bombs and other munitions.

Israel was the largest export customer for Skyhawks. The Skyhawk was the first U.S. warplane to be offered to the Israeli Air Force, marking the point where the U.S. took over from France as Israel's chief military supplier. Deliveries began after the Six-Day War, and A-4s soon formed the backbone of the IAF's ground-attack force. In IAF Service, the A-4 Skyhawk was named as the Ayit, Hebrew for Eagle. They cost only a quarter of what a Phantom II cost and carried almost as many bombs. Israeli Air Force Skyhawks were the primary ground attack aircraft in the War of Attrition and the Yom Kippur War.

The orginal model and texture where shared with us by the EoD mod. Improvements to the model and texture are done by the PR and IDF mod teams. Our Skyhawks will have a much improved cockpit model and new HUD. Nadviga did a great job in researching and creating the Israeli Skyhawk texture for us.

Even though the Skyhawk was a relatively light aircraft it was able to carry a wide variety of weapons and deliver them with deadly effect. The Skyhawk designer, Ed Heinemann also designed a series of streamlined droptanks and bombs, the mark 80 series of bombs that are still used today. Our Skyhawks will come with many different and deadly weapon load outs.

Our standard skyhawk will have two 20mm canons, drop tanks, six mk 82 500 lb bombs and two LAU-131 rocket pods.A4 W1

Another version will have canons, drop tank, two LAU-131 rocket pods and two LAU-130 rocket pods.

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.
