Afghan National Army [SFF-R]


Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the Afghan National Army (ANA) and the ANA 2nd Commando Battalion- 'Thunder'. The faction, both the ANA Army and the Commandos, are based on 2007 to 2010 photgraphs- for the Commandos that means pre-ANASOC time period.

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.

Historical Info-
Commando units were formed in the Afghan Army in early 2007, and perform similar roles to the US Army Rangers. They often serve alongside other allied SF units, who serve as commanders and advisors, or as support, for the ANA Army or Commando forces.

The Faction-
The Afghan National Army makes up the bulk of the infantry force of the faction- they wear an older style uniform in M81 Woodland camo with older flat OD vests and light headwear, with some helmets, and carry a mix of Kalashnikov rifles and AR pattern rifles like M16's and M4A1's, with the PKM being the primary infantry machinegun.
The ANA have no standard issue sidearm, so pistols vary from M1911's, M9's, Makarovs and some Commandos carry the Glock 17.

Specialist Elements-
The ANA 2nd Commando form the Special Forces element of the faction, and are equiped with much more modern gear, such as M4A1's and M249 SAW's as standard, with Crye Gen 3 Uniforms and custom plate carriers, Opscores, Night Vision googles and IR lasers. They also have more access to magnified optics, supressors and IR devices like strobes.

The Army is supported by multiple Troop tranport or 50. Cal Technical's, with transport trucks and the M1117 Guardian MRAP donated from US forces also available.

The Afghan National Army are grouped as 'Infantry' units, and the Commandos are 'Special Forces'.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio, ACE3 and ALiVE support (faction name ANA )

Set ALiVE unit type to 'infantry' to spawn ANA, and to 'S.F' to spawn Commando teams.

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. Thanks to Roadrunner for help with the ANA's equipment.

To install Afghan National Army [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.
