NorFor Project - Norwegian Military Forces Project
by
Viking_NFS


Description:
This addon provides Norwegian military units for use with ArmA2, Operation Arrowhead and Combined Operations.

The NorFor Project, which is short for the Norwegian Military Forces Project, started as an initiative with the purpose of expanding the Operation Flashpoint (OFP) experience into a realistic virtual combat and warfare simulation.
As the name indicates, NorFor will provide its users with units covering most aspects of the Norwegian Defense Forces, from tanks and helicopters to rifles and soldiers.

The idea behind a Norwegian simulation started early 2002 with the release of the very first Norwegian units for OFP, created by Ivan (Edge) assisted by Viking, under the prefix VIN. These units were based on the BIS Resistance models.

Viking continued work on Norwegian units, gradually getting help from other Norwegian fans (Jahve, andersgrim, Turbobyk, Marsuitor and Fudge). Units at this point were based on BIS models, along with many different units from other mods (Swedish Forces Pack, DDAM, BW-MOD to mention some). This work funneled out in the creation of NORMOD (NOM), which was probably the height of Norwegian modding (counting people involved).
More Norwegian fans entered the scene filling different roles. (SCA Jolly, ting, eisa01, Kopijeger).
As interest for the game and the mod waned, only a few members were left: Jahve, andersgrim, Viking, Fudge, Marsuitor and SCA Jolly.

After a some time with no releases, Viking and Marsuitor began work on units based on Ballistic Addons Studios Delta/Rangers Pack. They were assisted by Jahve, who worked on updating the weapon pack from NOM. This work slowly went on, culminating in the last work by Norfor for Operation Flashpoint, including the change from BAS models to HYK's US Soldier models. The "official" work and planning for the NorFor Project was started early 2004, by andersgrim, Jahve, Fudge, Viking and Marsuitor.

The Project released more or less finished content developed thus far in the spring of 2006, but a few members still continued work and planned a new release before Armed Assault (ArmA) was released in Norway (Q1 2007).
By the end, Norfor provided soldiers, weaponry, tracked and wheeled vehicles and air units from the Norwegian Armed Forces for OFP.

With interest at an all-time low during ArmA, nothing was released by Norfor for that game.

Now with ArmA2 and OA on the market, the pack which accompanies this Readme will provide the player with a decent range of Norwegian military units and equipment.

This release would not have been possible without the kindness and goodwill of other mods, like Swedish Forces Pack, DDAM and Pedagne MOD.
In addition, some textures and vehicles are taken from addons made for the earlier BIS games and the creators of these must not be forgotten either, like BW-MOD and DK.
