Codename Flashpoint (Formerly called Urban Conflict) is a semi-realistic mod for Battlefield 2, based on the new conflicts of the post-Cold War era.

Post news Report RSS Urban Conflict 1.3 released : The Imposed War and The Persian Gulf War

Hello dear players ! Since the last update we added two new wars to the mod : the Iran-Iraq war and the 1991 Persian gulf war.

Posted by on

First of all, I would like to thanks IDF, BFKOREA, AIX , USI mods, Jones, Clivewill, Requin94 and Ponysaurus_Rex for their great contribution on this new version.

Also the idea of adding those wars came from a player called lato190 , thanks to him ! :)

Note : All weapons you see in soldiers hand are not their real weapons in game. All work you see here is currently in progress, nothing is 100% finished.

The Iran–Iraq War (also called the Imposed War by Iranian) , was an armed conflict between Iran and Iraq between 1980, when Iraq invaded Iran, to 1988, ending by a stalemate. It was also one of the cause of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, leading to the Persian Gulf War. This war was compared to World War 1 in tactics, including trench warfare, and included one of the largest land battles since World War 2.

The Gulf War was a war waged by coalition forces from 35 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.The war is also known under other names, such as the Persian Gulf War, First Gulf War, Gulf War I, Kuwait War, First Iraq War, or Iraq War before the term "Iraq War" became identified instead with the 2003 Iraq War.

T34

The T-34 was a Soviet medium tank that had a profound and lasting effect on the field of tank design. Although its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war, it has often been credited as the most effective, efficient and influential tank design of the WW2.

Flag of Iran svg Iran


In 1979, the year of the Shah's departure and the revolution, the Iranian military experienced a 60% desertion from its ranks. Following the ideological principles of the Islamic revolution in Iran, the new revolutionary government sought to strengthen its domestic situation by conducting a purge of senior military personnel closely associated with the Pahlavi Dynasty. This disorganization was the Iraqi enthusiasm to invade Iran.

M48 Patton,M4 Sherman and BTr-40 by IDF mod

M48 Patton

The M48 Patton is a MBT that was designed in the United States. It was the third tank to be officially named after General George S.Patton , commander of the U.S Third Army during World War II and one of the earliest American advocates for the use of tanks in battle.

Iranian M48 tanks were used widely in the Imposed war.

screen295

M4 Sherman

The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most numerous battle tank used by the USA and some of the other Western allies in WW2. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce and available in great numbers.

Btr-40

The BTR-40 is a Soviet non-amphibious, wheeled APC and reconnaissance vehicle.

Both Iranian aircraft by Clivewill

F14

The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is an American supersonic,twin engine, two-seat, fighter-aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the US Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program after the collapse of the F-111B project.

In the 1980s F-14s were used as land-based interceptors by the Islamic Republic of Ira Air Force during the Iran-Iraq war, where they saw combat against Iraqi warplanes. Iranian F-14s reportedly shot down at least 160 Iraqi aircraft during the war, while only 12 to 16 Tomcats were lost; at least half of these losses were due to accidents.

screen307

F4 Phantom

The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor aircraft/fighter-bomber originally developed for the US Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. It first entered service in 1960 with the U.S. Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it was also adopted by the US Marines Corps and the US Air Forces, and by the mid-1960s had become a major part of their respective air wings.

The F-4 was also operated by the armed forces of 11 other nations, including Iran who used its large fleet of Phantoms in the Iran-Iraq war.

screen288

AH1 Cobra

The Bell AH-1 Cobra is a two-blade, single-engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter. It was developed using the engine, transmission androtor system of the UH-1. A member of the prolific Huey family, the AH-1 is also referred to as the HueyCobra or Snake.

screen344

Shared stuff : ZPU-4

ZPU-4 by USI mod

The ZPU is a family of towed anti-aircraft gun. It entered service with the Soviet Union in 1949 and is used by over 50 countries worldwide. Development of the ZPU-4 began in 1945. The quad-barrel ZPU-4 uses a four-wheel carriage similar to that once used by the obsolete 25 mm automatic anti-aircraft gun M1940. In firing position, the weapon is lowered onto firing jacks. It can be brought in and out of action in about 15 to 20 seconds, and can be fired with the wheels in the traveling position if needed.

nice!

do you use all content from USI (i hope so) ? or just a few stuff from it? because the mod contain alot vehicles & weapons which fits into the gulf war era, maybe if you ask for permission maybe you can use all of it.

some ideas:
- for the gulf war, maybe you can create a coalition as faction, since USA was not the only country as you mentioned. the good thing is when you use a coalition as faction: you dont have to create every country as a seperate faction. You could use this as flag: Psywar.org and then you can make it similar to the NaW mod which has different soldiers in one team (USA assault kit, German Anti Tank etc for example) or you could give the coalition faction just unique camo to both soldiers & vehicles.

but this is not a must ofcourse, it would also take time, maybe you start first with the factions you have and maybe change it later.

- before the second gulf war began, there was some sort of revolution in iraq where saddam government fought against iraqi rebels (shia i think) and it took one month and killed 100.000 people total. since you have all of the stuff there, you could create also this war/insurgency warfare, you only need to add one insurgent faction, there is the middle eastern insurgent faction you can use and retexture, give them the insurgent flag and bam you have everything ready for the conflict. here a link about the uprising: En.wikipedia.org

these are just ideas, but this will be the best iraq war mod for bf2

The first idea is not really what I want. Ii is a good idea by I don't want to have a coalition faction in Urban Conflict. The second idea sound interesting and easy, If I get time to do it, maybe I will do it.

Now this looks very interesting! I'm loving the decision to add more eras to the mod, especially the Iran-Iraq War, you don't see that portrayed in games very often. The new content looks great, I can't wait to see it in action!

Awesome update!! Love the Iranian aircraft, F-14 and F-4!
Although I don't think the F-4 could carry the AIM-54 missile. It was a special long ranged air to air missile only used by the F-14.

No problem glad to see you put our content to good use!!!
Yeah I did a lot of research for the F-4 for our IDF mod. It could carry pretty much any missile, bomb or rocket. But not the AIM-54. It could carry the AIM-9 and AIM-7 sparrow missiles though.
You should add some dog fighting versions of maps. I really want to fight in an F-14 and F-4 against swarms of Iraqi planes! Also the M-4 Sherman is from our IDF mod, we shared it with the BFK team.

I liked the mod it was good and interesting. Thanks a lot you won a 10 for all the work you've done. Congratulations. But I have something to tell you, version 1.3 of the language, is that the faction Iran is what is happening. At first there is not Persian or Farsi but rather Arabic and it is the one I do not like because when I choose this faction I hear that it is and I did not like the version well if I like it but everything else does not and I want to please if you can Replace this language that I do not like because I told you and it's the following way ... "Persian-Farsi" if one day you can correct this problem you would be so kind and I think the only one who speaks the mentioned and is the DCGF "Desert Combat Global Front of BF1942 "Thank you.

Yeah I thought about that. It is not even Iran only, but also Afghanistan that I added recently. The problem is that I don't know where I can find someone to record his Persian voice for me. But you said it is existing in this mod ? I will try to contact the authors to ask them permission to use it.
