AAF 'Spathi' (Blade) Special Forces were a unit formed during the start of the Altis Civil War, and served in recon, direct action raids, hostage rescue and other missions where the conventional AAF infantry forces lacked equipment or training.
Because of their specialist role, they have a higher budget compared to the AAF infantry, and are armed with HK416A5's as standard, supported by 7.62 NATO Bulldog battle rifles and M249 SAWs. Standard sidearm remains the M1911.
Uniforms are Gorkas in Lizard camo and other cold-weather gear, due to them primarily fighting in the higher altitude areas around Oreokastro, a known FIA strongpoint and centre for insurgent operations in the area. Crye Airframes are the standard helmet, but some PASGT's from the infantry are used on occasion.
As a counterpart to the other faction's Recon Teams, the Spathi have access to JTAC's, as well as combat engineers/explosive specialists and medical teams. Sniper-Spotter teams are also recruited from the AAF ground forces or Spathi itself.
The 'Spathi' forces are an additional side-faction to the main AAF forces to make it compatible with AAF Overhaul/replacement mods or base game AAF forces.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio and ALiVE support (faction name AAFSF ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
