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.

Today we show the last of the two new Israeli helicopters we will add in the next release, the CH-53 Sea Stallion.

Posted by on

We see here the two new helicopters the IDF will receive in the next release, the UH-1 Iroquois and the CH-53 Sea Stallion. The UH-1 is a small, agile and light utility helicopter while the CH-53 is a massive and powerful machine. I rendered them both side by side so we could see the difference, David and Goliath.

The CH-53 was bigger and stronger than the IAF's other helicopters, and represented a leap forward in capability to undertake rescue operations, transport missions and tactical troop landings. The CH-53s recived the Hebrew name, Yas'ur (Petrel) and saw extensive service during the War of Attrition, the Yom Kippur War and all Israeli conflicts to this day.

We thank Clivewil from the AIX mod for sharing the CH-53 with us.

Yeah both will have door gunners. Either a FN MAG or a 30 caliber MG.

The Arab Armies will have the Mi-8. We want to have both a transport version and an attack version armed with rockets. The Israelis will not have an attack helicopter.
