Israeli Defense Force: Fight for Independence is a Total Conversion modification for the PC game Battlefield 2 (A.K.A. BF2). 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.
The dovra (English Translation: Barge) was on of the many types of equipment that the Israelis used to cross the Suez canal during the Yom Kippur War. Uni-float barges were leftover from World War II, they were used by the allies for crossing water obstacles, such as rivers. They could be attached to each other for the establishment of floating bridge. Israel purchase several uni-float barges from the UK after the Six Day War. They were modified to form motorized barges that could ferry heavy equipment such as tanks. They could also be connected to form a floating bridge. We will have to versions of the dovra. One version will by player controlled and function as a ferry to transport vehicles across the canal. Another version will be static to form a floating bridge. The excellent model and texture was made by Bluefrog, one of our old mod team members.
