This is an expansion of the AAF (Altis Armed Forces) troops to include Special Forces, giving the AAF an equivalent to NATO and CSAT's existing Recon Teams or CTRG/Viper Team, which AAF lacks in the base game.
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 compared to the AAF infantry, Spathi forcesare armed with M4A1's and M4A1 SBR's as standard, supported by 7.62 M14 EBR's like the conventional infantry and and MG3's GPMG's. M72 LAW's are Spathi's main AT weapon. The standard sidearm remains the ACP M1911, often with laster/light combos or supressors.
Uniforms are AAF digital camo. Crye Opscores are the standard Spathi helmet, but some boonies and field caps are also used on occasion.
The Spathi have access to 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.
