Private Military Contractors [SFF]


Special Operation Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds a PMC Contractor faction, with equipment based on contractors in Iraq and internationally.

Historical Info-
The main force is based on Iraqi PMC's in a 2008-2017 time period, with the restrictions on PMC organisations by the Iraq Ministry of Interior in place.
This means they do not have access to equipment like magnified optics, machineguns, or any form of pyrotechnic devices like 40MM grenade launchers, hand grenades and smoke grenades.

The Faction-

The PMC units consist of smaller teams, with lighter equipment, including mixed civilian and military equipment, armed with primarily M4A1 Carbines, supported by the occasional Sharpshooter.
Standard weapons include the M4A1 carbine, M4A1 CQBR, AKM and AKS-74U, with support from weapons like SIG 716's and the occasional rarer weapons, like a TAR-21. Because of MOI restrictions PMC units are not allowed to have more than a single registered weapon, so there is no standard sidearm.

Many of the PMC's have significantly lighter armor and gear than the Rangers, acting as more security and HVT protection or bodyguards than actual frontline combat units.

Specialist Elements-
"International PMC's' is the name I have chosen for the better-equipped PMC force that is meant to represent the non-restricted PMC forces around the globe, such as former military SADF soldiers fighting against Boko Haram in Africa.

They have no restrictions on kit, so things like magnified optics, machineguns, and grenades are all used, while camo uniforms in more lush and forested colors are more common due to the jungle fighting. Some LSV vehicles are also available for transport.

Many of the PMC support vehicles are ex-civilian vehicles, but they also have MD-500 helicopters and RHIB boats.
A two man small bodyguard team, armed with sidearms, is available as a supporting element for mission makers who want to escort missions for allied HVT's or civilian VIP's.

A Sniper-Spotter team is also included, based on the video of a Blackwater International sniper in Iraq (named Travis Hayley, if anyone's intrested) in the early/mid 2000's. The Sniper is armed with a HK417 as I didn't have any DMR AR platform's around, and it was the closest I could get.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name PMC ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system as well as all AI modifications. PMC Contractors are an INDEP Faction.

To install Private Military Contractors [SFF] 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.
