CSAT Overhauled


This mod is a total replacement of the CSAT faction, bringing them more in line with modern day equipment, weapons and uniforms.
It works in the official Arma 3 Campaign and custom scenarios that use the CSAT faction will be using the new faction as well.

The Faction-

The Canton-Protocol Strategic Alliance Treaty (CSAT) is made up of Iran, China, and several other East Asian and Middle Eastern nations. The Russian Federation, while not a member of CSAT itself, is a major partner and supplier for CSAT, and often cooperates with CSAT member states on the development of new equipment.

The majority of the CSAT Infantry forces are equipped with desert digital camo and AK-74M rifles. I felt the desert digicam keeps the brown tone and high-tech 'feel' of the CSAT forces but it's more realistic than the hex-cam.

CSAT's origins in Iran has meant that their standard fireteam machinegun is the basic MG3 in 7.62 NATO with a light 50 round drum, and the MG3 is also used in the dedicated MMG gunner role with larger 100 round drums and rail mounts for 4x optics.

Standard AT weapon is still the RPG-32, which gives them better anti-armor capabilities compared to the RPG-7 of other factions, and the standard sidearm is the MP-433 'Grach', but small numbers of PP-2000's and Makarov's are also used.

Specialist Elements/ CSAT Guards-

The Urban/ Guards CSAT unit is now based on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard unit, and as such wears Woodland fatigues, and due to their higher status are armed with AK-100 series rifles, usually AK-105's to maintain ammo commonality with the general infantry forces within CSAT. They have slightly better access to equipment like body armor and modernised AK rifles.

A small Recon SOF unit is available under CSAT command, and they are very well equipped with ex-Russian body armor, helmets including some Western Ops-cores, and have highly customised AK-74's or AK100's, as well as very small numbers of KH2002 'Katiba' rifles, which was a prototype that was not fully adopted by Iranian Forces.


Many of the supports are of Soviet origin, such as MRAP's orginally created for the Russian Interior forces and the as well as production models of the Object 640 Main Battle tank, based on an upgraded T-80U.
Mobile AAA and self-propelled artillery are also available, as are Naval divers and their transports.

A variety of helicopters fill CSAT airspace, from the small infantry trasport of the KA-60 / Orca to the Mi-48 Kajman gunship. Drones are also available.


Known Bugs- Pop-up error on start. Not easily fixable, sorry, but causes no major problems.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, MCC and ALiVE support (faction name OPF_F ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
It totally replaces the OPFOR CSAT faction in editor, Zeus, ALiVE and all scenarios played when the mod is enabled.

To install CSAT Overhauled 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.
