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 intend 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 beta tester. Keep an eye on the forums to see the progress of the mod.

We are happy to announce that after many years of development, IDF - Fight For Independence: V0.20 Beta is ready for release! Please go to the files section to download and play the beta.
We also have a beta map pack that includes 14 maps with SP/COOP support!! Again please go to the files section to download the beta and the map pack.
We included some great classic desert maps from other BSS mods as well as community made maps! We also have ready 3 different Suez Canal crossing maps! This was an iconic moment in the Yom Kippur War and we wanted to have as many canal crossing maps as we could.
Capture the El Ferdan bridge over the Suez Canal. This is a real bridge but a fictional battle
Operation Badr: The iconic Egyptian crossing of the canal on the opening day of the war
Operation Abirey-Halev: Less well known but equally important Israeli canal crossing
We are looking for your feedback with the beta. This will help to improve the final release. So please send us your feedback about bugs and other things we can improve on. Thank you and enjoy!
