FIA Overhauled


This mod is a total replacement of the FIA forces, bringing them more in line with modern day equipment, weapons and uniforms.
It works in the official Arma 3 Campaign and custom scenarios that use the FIA faction will be using the new faction as well.

The Faction-
The FIA (Freedom and Independance Army) draws it's origins and name from the 1985 anti-Soviet resistance movement of the same name that fought in the Malden and Everon conflicts.
The modern FIA was established out of civilians and Altis Armed Forces defectors following a coup d'etat in the capital city of Kavala, causing a civil war between the FIA and AAF to break out.
The FIA are armed with the M4A1 and M4A1 CQBR carbines as primary weapons, with older models of AUG used in some roles. The standard support weapons are the M60, M14 and RPG-7 and the fighters wear a mix of M81 woodland camo mixed in with civilian and geurilla clothing.

The FIA is supported primarily by re-purposed and camouflaged civilian vehicles, including techincals and trucks, but also has access to a large amount of static weapons, such a M2, KORD and DShK's, with mortars and static AA and AT missile launchers.

Important Notes-
The faction is fully functioning as a total campaign replacement, but note that Kerry, Stavros and Miller are unique units, and cannot be changed- so these units retain the TAR rifles- playing as Kerry you can easily just take a M4A1 or other weapon off a dead ally if you want to, and the M4A1 and AUG can also fire vanilla Bohemia Interative 5.56 NATO ammo if needed.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name BLU_G_F ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
It totally replaces the BLUFOR FIA faction in editor, Zeus, ALiVE and all scenarios played when the mod is enabled.

To install FIA Overhauled 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:

Added Cessna TTX aircraft for recon.
Added F-2000 rifles to some units, replacing the older 1970/1980's AUG's.
Minor kit changes, bug fixes for FIA Rifleman (AT) and FIA Marksman (no more vest clipping with jacket)
Removed SFF Vehicles Dependancy.
