African Special Forces [SFF]


Special Forces Faction [SFF] that contains the Army, Military Police and Army Special Forces of Kenya and the Somali Commando unit 'DANAB', meaning 'Thunder.'

The Faction-
The Kenyan Army ( Kenya Defence Force) is one of the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa, and it is often deployed as part of UN task forces internationally to other nations within the African continent for peacekeeping or combat duties. The Kenyan Army forces are equipped in British DPM pattern uniforms, with a mix of Galil's, AKM's and M4A1's as standard weapons, with the Israeli Negev as the standard machinegun. Standard sidearm is the M1911.
Both Kenyan regular Army and Military Police forces are included in the faction, as well as the Special Forces element. Based on 2012 photographs.

Historical Info-
The Kenyan armed forces can be traced back to the 1800's, when they were a British colony and forces drawn from Kenya and other African nations formed a military units against local rebels following the abolition of the slave trade in the 1890's. Kenya has since been very active in peacekeeping missions since the 1970's, deploying troops alongside UN task forces to Liberia, Mozambique, Yoguslavia, Croatia and, importantly for it's portrayal in-game, Somalia.

Specialist Elements-
The faction includes both the Kenyan Army Special Forces and the Somali DANAB commando forces. The Kenyan SF are are armed with SCAR-L's and SCAR-H's, with some Nevev machineguns and the M1911 as a standard sidearm. Based on mid-to-late 2012 photographs.

Also included is a contingent of the Somali DANAB Commando unit, based on photographs from 2010-2015. The Somali SF are equipped in Desert Tiger Stripe uniforms, with the Galil and M4A1 as primary weapons, supported by the M14 and M249 SAW. Standard sidearm is the M1911.

Vehicle support for the faction comes from light helicopters such as the MD-500 as a scout helicopter and an AH-6 Littlebird, as well as assault boats and armored support from the aging T-34 tank, which despite being nigh-useless for conventional warfare has carved out a niche role in the support for African ground forces in counter-insurgency and guerilla warfare since 1993, when the majority of the more modern Somali armored vehicles were destroyed in fighting in Mogadishu.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name KSF ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system. The African Forces are an INDEP faction.

Notes- Galil donated by FHQ/Alwarren, and camo by Roadrunner.
