US MARSOC Marine Raiders [SFF-R]


Special Forces Faction mod, RHS Version [SFF-R] that contains the United States MARSOC Marine Raider Regiment.

Note this version is dependant on RHS Escalation. If you would prefer different dependancies there is a SMA version also available. They are not compatible with each other and cannot be enabled at the same time.

They form one of the Special Forces units in the Marine Corps, and are under the command of MARSOC- Marine Special Operations Command. The faction contains several units of Raiders, with supporting Scout elements and light vehicle and helicopter support.

The faction is based upon photos and helmet-camera footage, primarily on a deployment in 2010 to the Farah province, Bala Baluk District, Afghanistan, 2010, but I also have sources from 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017, up until Febuary 27th, 2017.

Historical Info-
Named after the Marine Raiders unit from WW2, the Marine Raiders are a Marine Special Forces unit, created as the Marine's element of SOCOM, Special Operations Command, in 2005- members were drawn from other Marine SF units such as Force Recon. The unit was initially trained by the Navy SEALS but is now independent.
Motto- "Always Faithful, Always Forward"

The Faction-
The Marine Raiders units have a distinct appearance, being one of the only remaining combat units in the US who still use the M81 Woodland Camo pattern. Armaments consist of 2 primary infantry rifles- the Daniel Defence MK18 and the M4A1 Block II as infantry weapons.
Supporting units carry weapons such as the M27 IAR (Fireteam Level) and M249 SAW (Squad level) with other weapons including small numbers of Mk11 rifles, based on the SR-25/M110 base platform, used in the Designated Marksman role. The standard sidearm is the Glock 17 but there are small numbers of custom M1911's for some Marines. They wear M81 Woodland camo with Tan equipment.

Specialist Elements-
The Raiders have support from a Raider Scout team, who are lightly armored, fast moving infiltration units who carry the longer ranged M4A1 Block II's as standard, and have supressors. The Scouts have less body armor than the regular Raiders, but have much heavier firepower and access to long-range rifles such as the M40A5 sniper rifle. They also have flashbang grenades.

They have vehicle support from light vehicles like quads, ATV's, LSV's and from RG-33 MRAP's, who can also transport a heavily armed assault team as a Quick-Reaction-Force (QRF) The Raiders also have helicopter support from a UH-1Y or MH-6M helicopter, with a Zodiac boat for water insertions.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name MR ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.

IMPORTANT- Faction does not work as the allied/player faction in the 'Dynamic Recon Ops' scenario, but works fine as OPFOR/AI units in that scenario. All other missions have perfect function.

To install US MARSOC Marine Raiders [SFF-R] you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
