Italian Special Operation Forces


This addon is a retexture of Arma2 OA Delta Force , German and Czeck SF units, meant to rapresent Italian Special Operation Forces in all the different camouflages actually used by Italian SOF, as following :
    - Ranger(vegetata): for temperate and woodland environment.
    - Ranger(desert): for desert and arid environment.
    - SF(heavy multicam): for both desert, temperate and woodland environments, in heavy gear.
    - SF Recon (light multicam): they're same as SF but in lightweight gear.
    - SF\Ranger(Winter): for snow covered and artic environment.
    - Ghillie snipers and Spotter : desert and woodland, you'll find them under Rangers Vegetata and Desert categories .
    - Support\Other Units : Officers, Guards and Off Duty soldiers in all camos, plus crews and pilots.
    - Undercover Units : SF undercover wearing locals clothes, in order to have them you need to install this addon too : "mas_ita_undc.pbo"(included in the pack).

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Ace2 Config:
Just put the ACE2 Optional Config (called "mas_ita_unit_ACE.pbo") in the modfolder of your preference , this file will automatically hide standard Italian SOF units, and will show only the ACE ones.
Note: all the "class names" of the units are the same as in previous version, no changes (for mix makers).
Units and organizzation are the same as for standard Italian SOF, but they're all equipped with ACEX gear and weapons (this means for example that all of them have one bandage, and medics have drugs too, or that spotters have spotter scopes and rangefiders, demo expert uses ACEX explosives too, etc).
The units are also already set to use "English" if Ace AI Talk is enabled.
Units and Groups are the same as for vanilla game, as following:.
Bluefor - Italian Special Operations (sorted by different camos)
you'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - Italian Special Operations (as above).

Replacement Pack Installation:
You'll find 2 different replacement types of file, you can use both at the same time if you wanna replace both US Army and Delta Force models with Italian ones.
- "US Army Replacement" : replace all US Army models with the italian ones, Pilots and Crews too.
You can choose to install the "vegetata" or the "desert" replacement depending on the environment you're playing in.
- "Delta Force Replacement" : replace only the Delta Force BI models with the Italian multicam ones.

Included .pbo files:

You will find the units in the editor under:
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO) (sorted by different camos)

You'll find groups also under:
Bluefor - Italian SOF (CO) (as above).

Known issues:
No problems found so far, no RPT errors, tested both in vanilla, beta and with ACE2.
