Italian Special operation units

This addon is a retexture of Arma2 Force Recon assault rifleman , grenadier , and few other FR units meant to rapresent Italian Special Operation Forces in all the different camouflages actually used by Italian SOF, rapresented by :
    - SOF Ranger(Vegetata): for temperate environment.
    - SOF Ranger(Desert): for desert environment.
    - SF(Multiland): for both desert and temperate environments.
    - SF Light Gear Recon units: same as SF but in lightweight gear.
    - SF/SOF(Winter): for snow covered environment.
    - SF Ghillie sniper\recon units: in desert , temperate and winter camos.
    - GIS: MP Special Forces in CQB nomex suite.
    - NOCS: Police HRT in CQB nomex suite
    - GOI(Wood/Multicam): Navy Special Forces in woodland and multicam camo.
    - Support Units : Italian pilot and crew
As we always recommend use modfolders.
Check our FAQ for a clear explanation.

ACE2 files Installation:
- file: "mas_ita_spec_ACE2_cfg_repl.pbo"
You can use the OPTIONAL ACE2 CONFIG that you'll find in the "ACE2 config" folder that replace IT SF weapons with the ACEX ones, and add some of the great ACE2 stuff (like gasmask, balaclavas, ecc...), this way my IT SF classes will be automatically replaced.

- file: "mas_ita_spec_ACE2_new_cfg.pbo"
If you have problems using the previous file, look inside "ACE2 congif >>> backup ACE config (new classes) " : there you'll find another replacement file that instead of overwriting my IT SF classes, create new ones ( BLUFOR>>> Italian SOF ACE) using ACEX weapons and equipment (same as above).

both files are SIGNED, choose the best solution for you, BUT REMEMBER TO USE ONLY ONE AT A TIME!!!

Replacement files Installation:
In the folder "replacement files" you'll find 3 different replacement, one replace only the force recon units with the Italian ones, the other 2 replacement replace all the USMC units with Italian models, you can choose to use the Woodland (vegetata) or the Desert one.
