OPFOR FIA Overhauled


This mod is a total replacement of the OPFOR 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 OPFOR FIA faction will be using the new faction as well.

The Faction-

The FIA (Freedom and Independence 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.

This FIA insurgency cell is supported by Iranian CSAT forces, so is armed primarily with older Soviet weapons such as the AKM and AK-74 as primary weapons, with the AKMS and AKS-74-U used in some roles.
The standard support weapons are the PKM, SVD and RPG-32 and the fighters wear mostly Desert Digital camo mixed in with civilian and geurilla clothing, as well as ex-Soviet body armor, helmets and other equipment. Standard sidearm is the Makarov.

Specialist Elements-

Several Iranian CSAT solders are in advisory roles, and can be identified by their full Desert Digital uniforms. There is a also a Sniper Team armed with SVD's added to the faction.


The OPFOR FIA units are supported primarily by re-purposed and camouflaged civilian vehicles, including techincals and trucks, but they also have access to limited amounts of ex-Russian armored vehicles, usually with makeshift camo patterns to match the re-purposed civilian vehicles. They have a BTR-60PB for an general infantry tranport, while the BMP-1's and BMP-2's can both provide transport and heavier firepower to the OPFIA forces. Finally, they have small numbers of scaveged T-72 main battle tanks that give them the ability to be a threat to AAF convoys and other assets.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, MCC and ALiVE support (faction name OPF_G_F ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
It totally replaces the OPFOR OPFIA faction in Editor, Zeus, ALiVE and all scenarios played when the mod is enabled.

To install OPFOR 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.
