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.

We want to share with you today some more BTR-40 variants and textures we have been working on.

Posted by on

Illness88 and his brother Gizoo worked together to make the BTR-40 model and texture for us. We liked it so much that we asked him to make us another variant the, BTR-40A. While the basic BTR-40 has no permanent armament, the BTR-40A is heavily armed, with twin ZPTU-2 14.5 mm twin anti-aircraft gun in a special turret.

The first texture he made is the Egyptian BTR-40A in color scheme they would have used in the 1950's and 60's.

BTR40A EGYPT1973 2

Next we have another Egyptian BTR-40 with a tan and green camouflage from the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

BTR40A SYRIA 1

Lastly and probably the coolest looking texture is for the Syrian Army. The Syrians had an interesting camouflage where they would paint over the existing dark Soviet green with tan and grey.

But Illness88 didn't stop their. He also created this cool model and texture of a Soviet radio that we will add to the BTR-40 and other vehicles.

We are also starting to work on the first person views for our new weapons and vehicles. Most weapons and vehicles will have two first person camera views. The first camera is a generic view of a person sitting in the cockpit or seat of a vehicle or weapon.

The second camera, activated by hitting the zoom bottom will switch you to a scoped view of that weapon or vehicle if it has a sight/scope. This is the work in progress of the scoped view for the BTR-40A. We also want to have as many 3-D sights/scopes as possible. We think they look much better in game than a 2-D HUD does.

That's all for this update. Stay tuned for more!

Well, I don't want to talk too much about BFK on his post here, but since you asked.

I would love to have an M10, and M18 as well as an M24, but the big issue with that is that we don't have people who can model and code new tanks for us.

Also, Communist forces need more diversity first before we add more UN/US tanks. Counting the M3 Half-Track and LVT's, US has 5 tracked vehicles, not counting the AA version of the Half-Track the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage. I would love to give the Chinese an IS2, since they had them in Korea, but they never went to combat. So we might take some artistic freedom with that.

I want to have UK and ROK forces in the mod, so for UK, we can use the IDF mod Centurion tank, but we don't have all the UK weapons made for them. ROK is easy, we can make them and give US weapons, and they used Japanese tank already in the mod. As well as other US weapons.
