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 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 Saiga 12 shotgun and AKS-74-U used in some roles.
The standard support weapons are the RPK and RPG-32 and the fighters wear mostly Desert Digital camo mixed in with civilian and guerilla clothing. Some have access to body armour or helmets with Night Vision googles. The standard sidearm is the Makarov PMM.
Several Iranian CSAT solders are in advisory roles, and can be identified by their full Desert Digital uniforms and more advanced armament of AK-74M's. Some specialist units, such as the sniper team, are armed with Chinese QBU-88 DMR's and night vision equipment. Kornet ATGM's are the heavy anti-Tank weapon of the faction, replacing the M4 MAAWS.
The OPFOR FIA units are supported primarily by re-purposed and camouflaged civilian vehicles, including technicals and trucks with a range of armaments including M2 50. Cals and SPG-9 recoiless rifles. Armoured vehicles used by the OPFIA include BMP-1's and BMP-2's, as well as heavier support from T-72A's and ZSU-23-4 Shilkas.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus, MCC, VCOM and ASR_AI and ALiVE support (faction name OPF_G_F ), as it replaces the vanilla OPFOR side FIA forces in all scenarios. 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.
