Hello everybody, here is our yearly update for Battlefield 2: Armed Forces of the Philippines. Just like the title says this will focus only the Abu Sayyaf Faction but, before we get to the weapons showcase, I need to share this explanation stated by the mod author on why they choose this faction over the later ones.
"Reason on why we picked Abu Sayyaf as a antagonistic faction instead the other Radical groups (e.g Maute, BIFF, and "Turaifie") is because of their infamous accomplishments in the past alongside their sheer amounts of brutality. Also this group is part of the FBI's most wanted list as a feared terrorist group even though the previous leader was KIA. For me personally ASG is more notorious than Maute, period. "
We'll I have to respect their decision, kudos to them :). With that being said lets get to the showcase:
Lets start with this Melee weapon here.
A staple of every Filipino muslims since the early times, the Talibong bolo knife will be found in many kits for the Abu Sayyaf. Thanks to Valve for this bladed weapon.
Next we have these unqiue two handguns. These are known as Paltiks; homemade inexpensive guns that are commonly seen in average criminal individuals. The pistol one is available only to Assault, Support, Medic, class Anti-tank, while the revolver one is only available to Sniper and Spec-ops class. Thanks to my pal DyordsTheBell who provided contributions on his personal collection.
Now we move on the primary ones; the Armscor M30 shotgun is a another unique weapon for close quarters, thus the Engineer is the perfect who will hold this weapon. The author who modeled this is gun is currently unknown but I'm pretty sure it is Filipino.
Next I have this awesome SMG which is a good alternative to the UZI or MAC-10 during the mod's developmental time.
The KG-9 was a favorite of the common criminals, also it's a variant of the venerable, and infamous TEC-9. The KG-9 is what the Anti-tank class will gonna use on the Abu Sayyaf faction. Thanks to Valve for this awesome gun.
The next one is kinda obscure but it is unique nevertheless; the AK-2000(Philippine's first indigenous Kalashnikov) will be issued to the Abu Sayyaf's Medic class. Credits to DICE for the model and JONES™ for the textures.
The Israeli Galil SAR(which is a carbine version of the Galil AR) was also another favorite used. This weapon is the primary firearm for the Spec-ops class. Again thanks to DyordsTheBell for his contributions.
Before we move on to the next weapon, let's have a short road block for a while to give all of you a vibes, in a previous post; there was originally an F-5A Freedom Fighter aircraft to be in the AFP faction arsenal but, all thanks to the blessing and good samaritan, we finally have this FA-50 as a proper modern multi-role aircraft. Credits to Karabiner for modeling, and Fat_Nerd21 for tweaks.
Now we continue; this M16 fitted with FIC-203 launcher will be utilized by the Assault class. Credits to DICE for the model and Tailer76 for the textures.
The Abu Sayyaf insurgents will be using the awesome Ultimax 100(some Filipinos are mistakenly called it "Thompson" due to it's ergonomics, specifically the forward grip). For better accuracy, the weapon must be fired at prone position. Credits to Smilgate(Crossfire) for the model and Nexon for the texture details.
Next in line is the unusual one for the sniper class; this weapon doesn't have a official name. Some say it's a Barrett sniper, while others it's a Arctic Warfare. Whatever the case is, I will call this a Syndicate sniper to fit the needs. Credits to Easy Studios/DICE for the model and textures, and JoeTheKasim for the mesh edit.
This next one is first to appear in the Battlefield 2 modding scene, the M67 recoilless rifle. This weapon is equally deadly against humans and vehicles, it will take a few hits to take out more heavily armored tanks, but nevertheless it is force to reckon it, the Anti-tank class will be issuing this launcher. Thanks to NEXON(Counter Strike Online) for this weapon.
And finally from top left to bottom right, these IEDs have different purpose but it will leave devastating results. They are basically the same as the vanilla ones (BF2 M67 Grenade, BF2 M18 Claymore, BF2 AT Mine, and BF2 C4) only differ in aesthetics. Thanks to cadnav.com for the various bomb models, and JoeTheKasim for exporting them.
Before i conclude, I just want to know that they don't have any vehicles in their arsenal as they are only focus on speed, and ambush, as well as surprise attacks and utilizing IEDs.
That's all for now folks, until next time for our next post ! ;)
