[SFF-C] Irish Republican Army

(4SFG) jarrad96

Special Forces Faction, CUP version [SFF-C] that adds the Provisional Irish Republican Army to Arma 3.

Historical Info
The IRA are a Republican paramilitary organisation formed to establish an independant Ireland from Britian, and have been active since before the first World War. This mod is more focused on the 1983 to late 1990's time period, and their conflicts with British Armed Forces during that time.

The Faction
The general Provisional forces will use anything they can get their hands on, from civilian clothing, guerrilla gear or mixed camo captured or purchased from the black market. Darker colours and Woodland or DPM camo's are very common. Weapons used by the IRA vary, but M16A1's and M16A2's, AK and VZ-58's as well FN FAL's are common, supported by PKM's, bolt action rifles and submachineguns like the Scorpion and UZI. Many of these weapons were obtained from overseas via the black market in the US, Libya and the Middle East, as well as firearms from Europe or the UK.

Sidearms are not standardised, but revolvers, M1911's and Makarovs are all used, with the RPG-18 and RPG-7 being their primary AT weapons. M60 7.62 machineguns are in limited use in the IRA, being in use after after 1978.

Specialist Elements
IRA Veteran forces are better equipped and trained compared to the regular IRA fighters, and have better access to ex-British equipment like camo, body armour and have heavier weapons like the FN MAG and Strela AA missile.

The IRA forces are backed by Medical, Anti-Tank and Command/HQ Elements as well as a sniper spotter team.

Faction has full Editor, Zeus, Task Force Radio, VCOM AI and ALiVE support (faction name IRA ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.

Included files:

-Added SPG9 static gun
-Added M2 50. Cal static gun
-Added DsHKM static gun
-Added Dirt Bike, Quad Bike, Land Rover and Land Rover armed (M2) as vehicles to the faction.
-Added some more infantry units, like additional rifleman variants as well as an IED Specialist
-Removed the majority of Mk3 body armour from the faction. It's still present, but MUCH less common than before. It has been replaced with either more chestrigs and bandoliers for lighter units, or with older PASGT body armour or ALICE rigs. As a result they should be easier to kill overall.
-Greatly improved the number of balaclavas and face masks in the faction, from it being a rather rare item to something that is very common, but not on 100% of the units. Comes in 3-4 variants, black, green, 2 and 3 hole versions, depending on the individual unit.
