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 Sukhoi Su-17, 20 & 22 (NATO reporting name: Fitter) are Soviet variable-sweep wing fighter-bomber developed from the Sukhoi Su-7. It enjoyed a long career in Soviet, later Russian, service and was widely exported to Eastern Bloc and Arab air forces.
Both the Egyptian and Syrians acquired Su-20s and used them against Israel in the Yom Kippur War.
Seeking to improve low-speed and take-off/landing performance of the Su-7B fighter-bomber, in 1963 the Sukhoi OKB with input from TsAGI created a variable-sweep wing technology demonstrator. The Su-7IG, converted from a production Su-7BM, had fixed inner portions of the wing with movable outer segments which could be swept to 28°, 45°, or 62°. The prototype first flew on 2 August 1966 with, becoming the first Soviet variable geometry aircraft. It differed from its predecessor Su-7 in having a new canopy and a dorsal fuselage spine for additional fuel and avionics. A total of 2,867 Su-17 and its variants were built, of which 1,165 were exported to 15 nations.
There were many, many variants of the Fitter. The first being the Su-17. The Su-20 was an export version of the Su-17M. The final variants were the improved and modernized Su-22, many still fly today in air forces around the world. Intended solely as a fighter bomber the armament of the Su-20 was similar to the previous Su-7 with 2 × 30 mm Nudelman-Rikhter NR-30 auto cannons. Additional hard points, some versions had up to 12, allowed the Su-20 to carry a much higher weapons load. As much as 4,000 kg (8,800 lb) of weapons could be carried. The weapons usually consisted of rockets and bombs. Later Fitters could also carry guided missiles and bombs.
Our Egyptian and Syrian Fitters will carry a variety of weapons. Here will be the standard version with 30mm cannons, drop tanks, rocket pods and bombs.
Another version with only cannons and 57mm rocket pods.
And finally a bomber version with cannons and 8 FAB 250 bombs.

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.

Perhaps we'll kill civilians and displace people from there homes, that'd be great fun for the IDF. Wonder if you can drive a bulldozer and destroy some poor family's house just before the winter hits. Maybe after the fight for independence is done we can see an expansion pack called 'invade all your neighbors'
