This mod is a total replacement of the CSAT faction, 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 CSAT faction will be using the new faction as well.
The Canton-Protocol Strategic Alliance Treaty (CSAT) is made up of Iran, China, and several other East Asian and Middle Eastern nations. The Russian Federation, while not a member of CSAT itself, is a major partner and supplier for CSAT, and often cooperates with CSAT member states on the development of new equipment and supplies of gear and weapons.
The majority of the CSAT Infantry forces are equipped with desert digital camo and AK-74M rifles. I felt the desert digicam keeps the brown tone and high-tech 'feel' of the CSAT forces but it's more realistic than the hex-cam.
CSAT's origins in Iran has meant that their standard fireteam machinegun is the basic MG3 in 7.62 NATO with a 120 round drum, and the MG3 is also used in the dedicated MMG gunner role with rail mounts for 4x optics to allow longer range engagements.
Standard AT weapon is still the RPG-32, which gives them better anti-armor capabilities compared to the RPG-7 of other factions, and the standard sidearm is the MP-433 'Grach', but small numbers of Vitzyaz 9MM SMG's and Makarov's are also used.
Specialist Elements/ CSAT Guards
The Urban/ Guards CSAT unit is now based on Woodland /forest combat forces, and they are armed with AK-74M series rifles as well as AK-105 carbines to maintain ammo commonality with the general infantry forces within CSAT. They have slightly better access to equipment like body armor and modernised AK rifles.
A small Recon SOF unit is available under CSAT command, and they are very well equipped with body armor, helmets including some Altyns, and have customised AK-74's as well as very small numbers of KH2002 'Katiba' rifles, which was a prototype that was not fully adopted by Iranian
