Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the "Epirean Free Militia" to Arma 3. The EFM is a fictional European military faction.
Since the initial deployment of the US Army in the Green Sea region for Operation Arrowhead in 2009-2014 drew the majority of Western forces into the Middle East, the situation in Epirus has declined and several warring factions have broken out in the mountainous nation, which has been suffering greatly from the multiple wars that have broken out during the 20th Century as well as mass poverty in the region.
'The Epirean Free Militia' is one of the largest factions, and have equipment comparable with a third world's standing army, with it's forces split into two distinct groups-
The Militia forces, who have civilian, guerrilla or mixed older weapons and equipment, such as AKM's, AK74SU's and partial camo or civilian clothes with little access to body armor other than some scavenged from killed police units, make up the bulk of EFM ground and infantry forces. Some veteran soldiers act as leaders for the Militia fighters, and they can be identified by their improved equipment and weapons, as well as more common use of camo.
The other group of forces is the combat Veterans, who have greater access to semi-standardised Tiger camo uniforms, ballistic body armor taken from the local military forces, and they have greater numbers of more modern weapons like the AK74. They have better leadership and training compared to the Militia forces, and some of the Veteran troops have night-vision googles, meaning they are much more effective at night-fighting than the Militia, who have flashlights.
The EFM have been known to purchase ex-Soviet block vehicles such as the BMP, T55/T72 and ZSU-Shilka, but these are rather rare, with the bulk of forces using technicals or commandeered civilian vehicles for long-distance travel. The majority of militia forces speak Serbian, English or Greek, with some of the higher ranks being Army defectors who are providing weapons, body armor and training to the regular militia forces.
The faction is fully compatible with Editor, MCC, ACE3, Zeus and ALiVE (Faction Classname IND_EFM )
