LoBo Historic IDF pack
The LoBo_HistIDF.pbo file contains within it IDF units simulating those during the 6-Day War, Yom Kippur War, and the first Lebanon invasion (early 80's). Within it you will will find standard Golani units, Sayeret Matkal, and paratroopers that include those wearing French Lizard cammo uniforms common in the late 60's amongst paratroopers. These units are primarily equipped with the FN-FAl rifle (the main battle rifle of this period) along with the famous IMI Uzi sub-machine guns. Other weapons include the standard K-98 rifle, the K98 sniper rifle, the Panzerfaust, and a range of other weapons. The M79 grenade launcher is not realistic but was put in to substitute for barrel launched grenades which we were not able to get working in ArmA. Perhaps in ArmA 2 we may get working some realistic rifle barrel launched grenades like we had in OFP.
Aside from this the helmets represent those of the period to incude old British paratrooper helmets as well as the US M1 steelpot.
The 80's units are wearing the modern IDF kevlar helmet (patterned after the British WWII paratrooper helmets), and the Israeli version of the PASGT kevlar flack vest that is still used in some units today. These units are armed with various types of Galil rifles (AR, SAR, Galatz, etc...).
As we always recommend use modfolders.
