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.
Another version will be armed with drop tank, canons, two 16-57mm rocket pods and two K-13 missiles.
And finally a bomber version with canons, missiles and either one or two FAB-250 bombs.
That's all for this update. Believe or not we have ALOT more content we are working on and we will continue to show more off as we make progress.
We show you today our new F-4 Phantom for the Israeli Air force. The Israeli Air force began to receive Phantoms in 1969 and immediately sent them into...

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.
