# What is Iron Front
It is a tactical shooter video game set in World War II Eastern Front built by AWAR - a group of former OFP and Arma modders. It was released mid 2012 as a standalone game using the Real Virtuality 3 engine also powering Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead.

The highlights:
Five outstanding terrains of various sizes
A large variety of very high quality and historically accurate units, weapons and vehicles
A German and Russian singleplayer campaign across eight missions in an authentic setting
Advanced gameplay features like the high level tank simulation, gun towing and artillery system or the realistic mine system
Great gameplay with its low tech world war 2 setting

# What is Iron Front in Arma
Our development team has ported the assets to Arma 3 to be used in the latest RV engine. This most recent version supports many of the new technologies and features of Arma 3 and is continued to be made more complete.

# What is the LITE version
Exactly the same selection of assets and features as in the FULL version.
Free version with lower quality textures and sounds.
SP missions and campaigns are not available.

Do note that it is NO LONGER fully MP compatible to the converted FULL version.
So you can play together with your friends or other players that have the FULL version and see how it goes.
We don't not endorse mixed play any longer and DO NOT ENCOURAGE to buy the Iron Front game at this point!

Read the full statement on discontinued support for the IFA conversion (IFA3 FULL).

# What is different to previous releases
Reduced to a single modfolder for simple install and use.
Available on Steam workshop for simple install and automated updating.
Bumped textures from 128x128 to decent looking 512x512 resolution (2048x2048 in FULL version).
Native TFAR support for radios available.

# Why is it called Preview version
This version contains still some issues we are aware of or some we are not aware of. However we want to provide people finally with an easy-to-use, hassle free, up-to-date and decent quality LITE version to be able to enjoy WW2 in Arma 3.

In addition we mainly more feedback on the scripted features - especially in MP environment.

To install IFA3 AIO Lite 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.
