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.

Hello :)

Thx for the quick answer. As you said I installed the new version and installed it. It is now available at BF2, but when I want to start it, a window appears where it says: "Failed to load effect: StaticMesh.fx"

Nice progress SPY-KER, can't wait for the release!
Your mod has inspired me to create my own personal Arab-Israeli mod. I am not a real modder like you, I really just tweak what other people have already done. But it turned out pretty good, let me know if you want to see some screen shots of of the skins I created. Keep up the good work!

Hello EITY10,
Currently, only the Six Day War, and it is not "100% complete".
Version V0.15 will be released in the coming days.
BTW, Please, do not abuse other mods.

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.
