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.

Today we are sharing some very impressive new content made by our mod team members Illness88 & Omer. All of the new content shares one thing in common, they all have the same 90mm gun. We have the DEFA D921 90mm gun itself, the M3 90mm DEFA half-track and the Panhard AML-90.

Am actually surprised how idiot and naive reviewers can be
When its written with a big *** NOTICE word and with red colored line that This mod does not mingle with politics of any kind you find actually people who are complaining that they don't want a mod where israel kills arabs .-.
Seriously none of you have the right to refuse any making of a mod and reviews should be about the game itself not about politics
Keep up with the stunning work people cause this mod actually rocks
Looking forward to the yom kippur and for my country's jordan to be represented
Much thanks to mod makers and good luck

Thank you, we understand the negative comments/reviews. Hopefully we will be able to win those people over by making our mod better and better. That is our goal.

You will defiantly see the Jordanian army in the future. We have already stared to work on some of their content. We will show you guys more as we make more progress.

All the maps are in co-op mode. Its similar to single player but with more options, its basically multi-player with bots. I made a tutorial on how to set up and play co-op maps. See the download section, hopefully that will help you.

@General_Bradly
Can you answer this,with a simple true or false

First you spent time,to remove singleplayer from all maps
Then you spent time answering questions about SP not showing
Then you spent time,making a tutorial showing how to use co op
Then you spent time,telling people whos maps arent showing in SP,that you made a tutorial for co op

True or false ?

This mod looks great. It's nice to see such underrepresented wars given some love here. Keep up the good work!

I'd love to play this, but unfortunately, I am having some trouble getting the mod working. I installed .15 and patched it to .17, but for some reason I get an instant CTD whenever I try clicking on "create local server" to start up co-op. Any clue what the issue might be?

EDIT: Wow, that was actually pretty easy. It appears you guys included a .zip file called "menu_server_patch.zip" that was meant to replace the original "menu_server.zip." Since it wasn't named the same thing, the original remained, and renaming the zip and overwriting the original fixed the CTD issue.

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.
