Oh, and anyone remind my old mod Ivory Coast Conflict ? I decided to make the same conflict in Codename Flashpoint, it is much better this time. But it come with only 3 factions instead of 6 (6 factions was a big waste for me in addition that the uniforms where not accurate at all, now it is.)

Conflicts added : Sierra Leone civil war, Ivorian civil war 2002-2007, War in Somalia 2009-present, Insurgency in the Maghreb.

Teams added : United Kingdom (Sierra Leone), Revolutionary United Front, French Foreign Legion (in Ivory Coast) and Land Army (in Maghreb), Ivory Coast Armed Forces (FANCI), New Forces (Ivory Coast rebels), AMISOM, Al Shabbaab, Algeria, Ansar Dine, AQIM.

Foreign Legion (wip)

The French Foreign Legion is a military service branch of the French Army established in 1831, unique because it was created for foreign recruits willing to serve in the French Armed Forces.

Land Army

Please don't take care of the HMMWV.

The Land Army is one of the components of the French Armed Forces. Like the other components, it is under the responsibility of the Government. After Ansar Dine attempted a push into the south of the country, Mali requested France to launch a military intervention in January 2013 which successfully pushed rebels out. The military intervention was followed by an ongoing Sahel-wide French-led military operation with around 4,000 French soldiers actively deployed.

Nice, can't wait to see your gameplay :D

Sometimes I ask myself if I will not forget to take care of some of the teams I added, since there is so much factions. x)

With all these factions here and in the rest of the mod, you're going to need a lot of maps. Regardless, good job, African conflicts are hardly ever explored in games, so nice to see it here

Indeed, I thought about that. There is a lot of talented mapper who agree to share their maps as long as they are credited. I have also some mapping skills, not an expert, but I have skills anyway XD. Anyway, we will see what will happen :)

Also, thanks, I think the Battlefield series don't take care of Africa since I have never seen an African conflict in a BF. This is here BF2 become usefull, to do what we want :)

Well, there's the "African Resistance Fighters" faction in Project Reality (which is a generic African rebel faction). They're used on a Mogadishu inspired map, among others.

"Soon" is not really true, We have a lot of things to do, I estimate it to be finished during the start of 2018, but maybe we can finish it before. :)

I don't know, but what I have to say is that some conflicts will be added separately.

Oh et puis, je vois que tu est de France, le français est ma langue principale alors tu peux parler le français avec moi :)

How about a POLISARIO and Morocco faction?

Many factions have participated in the wars I added, and others have their own wars but if I wanted to add all these factions, it will probably not benefit the mod given the number of factions I already have. Unfortunately it is impossible to honor them all.

Anyway, maybe later.
