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.

New mod music and sound effects!
In this update we have something very specail to share with you. We have our first orginal IDF:FFI game music to share! It was created by one of our newest mod team members Jeremy Aikens. So we now have our very own sound designer and audio engineer. Jeremy is a USAF and Army veteran, 17 years working in sound at home. He is a huge fan of IDF for years, and honored to be able to lend a hand in development. Here is a sample of what Jeremy has created for our mod.
Jeremy is created the music tracks from original material and some samples. He is trying to get a big, wide cinematic sound to fit the game. He is also creating some new sound effects for us to use in our mod. The sound effects are almost entirely sourced from real world combat use, as is most of the radio chatter. We are trying to go for as much realism as possible, but it's a very in depth and time consuming process. He has been doing a great job so far. So listen to the sample music tracks he has created so far and let us know what you think!
That's it for this update, stay tuned for more to come!

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.
