- Units are equipped with custom helmets, headgear, uniforms and vests.
- Heavy gear assault units for all the camos.
- Recon units for all the camos in 2 version "heavy" (Helmets and NVGs) and "light" (soft headgear).
- Ghillie suite snipers and spotter units for all the camos.

- Retextured A3 vehicles: Quad, MRAPs, APC, Boat, Speedboat, SDV, static weapons, CH 49, AH7, and littlebirds choppers, CAS plane, tanks, offroads wich have custom crews and gear loadout.
- Vehicles from my vehicle pack : Land Rovers, CH47, UH1Y, Static weapons with firing from vehicles, sling load and advanced flight model features.
- Units have their own uniforms and gear items in all camo to make them interchangeable.
- Divers have their backpack with uniform, chest rig and helmet inside already to make them change clothes once ashore, plus their normal stuff (NOT WORKING ATM).
- There are 2 weapon boxes one contain all weapons ammo and items, the other contains all the uniforms, gears, and helmet stuff, you can place them in missions to quick configure your loadout.
- Wide variety of groups in the editor.
- Classlist included in folder.

To install the Italian Special Operation Forces 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.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

Italian Special Ops - SOF (sorted by camo)
Same for groups:
Italian Special Ops - SOF (sorted by types)

For ALIVE mod users config faction\groups name: mas_ita_sftg
You’ll find all classnames in the classname file included in the folder.

I made this optional config on users demand since by default vehicles are now disabled and NATO SF\Spetsnaz Vehicles pack is not a requirement.
In order to get the vehicle just put the "mas_ita_sftg_v.pbo" plus its signature files in the "addons" folder, if you do so you'll need NATO SF\Spetsnaz Vehicles pack.

In order to use it:
- open @mas/addons
- REMOVE "mas_ita_sftg_c.pbo" file and replace it with "mas_ita_sftg_noveh_c.pbo"
- done

Steam Workshop:
- Subscribe (normal version)
- Subscribe (vehicle version)
