Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the US 75th Ranger Regiment to Arma 3.
The Ranger Regiment bridge the gap between Special Forces units and the regular military, with superior equipment and training to Army units but performing a wide range of missions including direct action, airfield seizure, airborne and air assaults, special reconnaissance, personnel recovery, and High-Value Target raids.
Motto- "Rangers lead the way!"
The 75th Ranger Regiment faction consists of Ranger units wearing Multicam uniforms and armed with Daniel Defence mk18's and FN SCAR-H's. The Rangers use period accurate equipment and weapons based on photgraphs and helmet camera footage taken from July 2014 through to December 2015 deployment tour of the 75th Ranger Regiment to Afganistan.
Marksmen are issued SCAR-H's, while regular Ranger infantrymen get Mk18's. They also have M249 SAWS issued on the fireteam level, with platoon level issue of MMGs and heavier AT assets like the M3 MAAWS/ Carl Gustav. The standard sidearm is the M1911 but some units carry FNX-45 Tacticals.
The faction is also available in Multicam Tropic if you wish to use Rangers for a Tanoan or Jungle deployment, with the Ranger and Regimental Recon forces being dress in more suitable camo instead of the normal Multicam Cyre G3 uniforms.
The Rangers are supported by Regimental Recon units- These Ranger forces are equipped with additional ammo and supplies, longer range optics as standard and have different support assets intergrated into the squads to improve their fighting ability at longer ranges, with increased numbers of 7.62 SCAR-H's and the use of the MMG as a fireteam level. Instead of additional AT assets like the normal Ranger infantry the Regimental Recon units have a demolitions expert.
Chinooks give the Rangers the ability to deploy platoon sized elements on the ground quickly, as a QRF or rapid assault force. They have forces varying from light recon units and sentry teams to full squads, as well as an MMG team for when greater supression is needed. Ground vehicle assets include Light Strike Vehicles, M-ATV's and HEMTT's.
They have heavy heavy fire support if they need it, ranging from a RAH-66 Commanche gunship, M270 MLRS rockets and A-10 Warthog CAS. All aircraft are piloted by the 160th SOAR, a special forces alligned pilot unit, and they have a range of rotor aircraft such as MH-6 Little birds, Chinooks, and AH-6 Littlebirds.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio, ACE3 and ALiVE support (faction name BLU_AI (Normal Multicam forces) or BLU_AI_T (Tropical Multicam forces )
Set ALiVE unit type to 'infantry' to spawn contractors, and to 'S.F' to spawn Ranger teams.
