A Special Forces Faction [SFF] that adds the Australian 2nd Commando Regiment and the New Zealand Special Air Service. The 2nd Commando are based on a 2015 Afghanistan deployment, while the NZ SAS are based on a 2011 mission to Benghazi.
The Australian 2nd Commando Regiment were formed in 2009, and are under the command of SOCOMD. Their most recent highly publicised operation was during the Shah Wali Kot Offensive in June 2010 before Australia began to withdraw it's forces from the country in late 2013, but some Commandos and NZ SAS remain in the country.
The 2nd Commando Regiment have a similiar role to the US 75th Rangers- to draw out and engage enemy forces supported by specialist elements like the NZ SAS. They are armed primarily with the M4A1 and CQBR Carbines, with the HK417 and M14 EBR, as well as the Minimi, in supporting roles. They wear Multicam uniforms and have Australian flag patches.
The 2nd Commando Regiment often trains and deploys with the Special Air Service Regiment, so the New Zealand SAS are the recon and intelligence gathering element for the Commandos, and they are geared the same as a 2011 mission to to Benghazi, where they used CQBR's and Multicam uniforms, with OD helmets and plate carriers. They also carry USP-45 Tactical's as their primary sidearm.
Both NZ SAS and 2 Commando are based on highly mobile fighting, using LSV's and ATV's for fast repositioning and having access to a UH-60 Blackhawk and CH-47 Chinook for air transport. They have a Sniper/Spotter team if needed.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name 2C ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
