Silent War: Polish-Belarusian Conflict is a Operation Flashpoint mod developed since 2002. The mod focuses on titular conflict between Poland and Belarus – a fictional scenario, yet one which occupies minds of military planners, since both countries are allied with opposing world powers. Without unnecessary moralizing, and arguing about right and wrong, Silent War tries to show how this hypothethical conflict would look like if it was to really erupt.
Silent War aims to realistically portray armed forces and locales of Poland and Belarus. To achieve this developers made numbers of new, accurate models of equipment used by both sides – including well-known items and vehicles of Soviet manufacture, and indigenous armament, never seen before in Operation Flashpoint. Examples of those are Polish Beryl rifles, W-3 Sokol and SW-4 Puszczyk helicopters, Honker and Star transports and Belarusian Volat and MZKT trucks or Caiman amphibious vehicle. Similiar attention is given to the new terrain developed for the mod, based on several places on the Polish-Belarusian border.
Finally Silent War is going to bring new playable content in form of both singleplayer missions and campaign, and multiplayer gamemodes such as co-op, CTI and others. The mod is still under development, having gone through several revisions, transformations and even alleged collapse. However in February 2021, a Polish Light Infantry Teaser was released, making it our first release since 2006 beta!
Silent War is currently developed by following people:
Former developers and contributors (in no particular order): Grey, Christoph, Pawel Ryszka, MaRcin, Arika, Raddar, SeaDemon, Towarzysz Szumek, Offtime, Ofman, Devek, Smookie, Alderous, Panda, Hawk, Sejtan, TomiD, Ktos, Sigma-6, Turkish Union Mod.
This small release is intended as a gift for all our supporters. We hope you will find the content worthy of the time you were waiting for it - it's the first official Silent War release since 2006!
Polish Light Infantry at an observation point
Current release contains a sample of Polish Army Light Infantry - an often forgotten and underfunded arm of Polish army, yet one that is still going to experience the majority of fights in defense of Poland. Our brave soldiers are equipped with variants of Beryl rifle, PKM general-purpose machinegun, SVD and SWD-M sniper rifles, and the legendary RPG-7. Light infantry relies on it's small footprint and mobility, when compared to "heavy" mechanized infantry. Thus in this release you'll also find Honker 2N - a small 4x4 utility truck, and Star 944 - a medium cargo truck.

This release wouldn't be possible without the help of many kind people in OFP/Arma community. You can learn their names in attached Readme, however, we would like to use this chance to thank to the people who's work is not yet available in Silent War. These people are Kanstancin "Karolstah" Astrozhski and Serg "Sapper" Kosarev who gave us enormous help in developing Belarusian Army addons. Thank you everybody!
Weapons of Polish Light Infantry - Beryl rifles
Naturally, today's release is just part of bigger plan. While we don't want to give any dates or deadlines, we can assure you that we are already working on the next addons. Belarusian infantry has biggest priority, but we also want to polish some details regarding Polish light infantry, weapons and vehicles. Also we're working on "backend" such as scripts and new GUI graphics. The future is full of exciting surprises, but for now, take a look at our teaser release!
