SFF Vehicles and Static Weapons Pack

 

This pack contains all the SFF forces vehicles and static weapons, including- 

Vehicles

BMP1 and BMP1-P 
The BMP went into production with the Soviet Army in 1966. It is an infantry fighting vehicle with troop transport capability and is armed with a 73mm cannon, with coaxial PKT 7.62 machinegun and roof-mounted AT missile. The BMP1-P has an improved missile on top. 

Weight- 13.2 tonnes 
Crew- 3 + 8 passengers 
Weaponry- 73 mm 2A28 Grom cannon, 9M14 Malyutka ATGM 
Speed- 65 km/h 

BMP2, BMP2 Command Variant, BMP2 Medical variant 
The BMP-2 is a different version of the BMP produced in the 1980's which has a new main armament- the 2A42 autocannon, which gives it better firepower against infantry and light targets compared to the BMP-1's light cannon, as well as improved turret elevation and depression. It has a Command and HQ variant, which has no main gun, only a mock-up barrel, and has additional radio equipment and longer range radios inside instead, and a unarmed medical version. 

Weight- 14.3 tonnes 
Crew- 3 + 7 passengers 
Weaponry-30 mm automatic cannon 2A42, 9M113 Konkurs ATGM 
Speed- 65 km/h 

T34-85 
The T34-85 served the Soviet army through WW2, but as it became outdated it was sold en-mass to other nations, eventually ending up as a highly outdated, but still effective tank, for use by poor third world armies or militia and terrorist groups. 

Weight- 26.5 tonnes 
Crew- 4-5 
Weaponry- 85 mm ZiS-S-53 gun 
Speed- 53 km/h 

T-55 
The T-55 after it's adoption in 1947 became the main tank for armoured units of the Soviet Army, armies of the Warsaw Pact countries, and many others. T-54s and T-55s have been involved in many of the world's armed conflicts since the late 20th century, and is now the most produced tank in history. It was eventually replaced by the T62/T64 and T72, but is still in widespread use today. 

Weight- 36 tonnes 
Crew- 4 
Weaponry- D-10T 100 mm rifled gun 
Speed- 48 km/h 

T-72 and T-72 with ERA heavy armor kit 
The T-72 was the most common tank used by the Warsaw Pact from the 1970s to the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1980's/1990's. It was also exported to other countries, such as Finland, India, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Yugoslavia. It has superior armor and weaponry to the T-55 and T-64 it replaced, and in the 1980's a ERA heavy armor kit was developed to improve it's survivability in combat further. It has a commander's cupola mounted KORD heavy machinegun. 

Weight- 41.5 tonnes (44.5 tonnes with ERA heavy armor kit) 
Crew- 3 
Weaponry- 125 mm 2A46M/2A46M-5 smoothbore gun, Cupola mounted KORD 
Speed- 60 km/h 

ZSU-23-4 'Shilka' 
The ZSU-23-4, nicknamed 'Shilka' is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun that has 4 23mm aint-aircraft autocannons linked together as it's main armament- it is very effective against infantry, light vehicles and slow or low flying aircraft or helicopters, but it's lack of AA missiles means it has a short effective range. It has been re-purposed as a highly effective anti-infantry vehicle for use in the Afghanistan mountains or in urban combat, which has given it a fearsome reputation. 

Weight- 19 tonnes 
Crew- 4 
Weaponry- 4 × 23 mm 2A7 autocannons 
Speed- 50 km/h 



Weapons


KORD, Dshkm, M2 50. Cal 
These weapons are all similar 12.7mm or higher anti-infantry or soft vehicle weapons. 

ASG-30 Grenade Machinegun, Mk19 GMG
The AGS-30 and Mk19 are both grenade machineguns, devastatingly effective against light vehicles or infantry, but with low ammo capacity and inaccurate. 

TOW Missile, Metis AT 
Both of those are wire-guided dedicated Anti-tank weapons. 

Stinger AA missile, Strela 3 AA Missile 
Anti-Aircraft light missile launchers on a static mount. 

ZU-23 AA cannon
This is the towed variant of the 23mm cannon from the 'Shilka'- is has the same devasting firepower but has only small 40 round belts and is not movable. Cheap, easy to operate and still effective, the ZU-23-2 is still used by the Russian Army and by more than 20 other armies. 

D-30 Soviet Howitzer, M119 American Howitzer. 
These are static howitzers/ artillery guns.

Dont suppose you got a F88 or EF88 (F90) coming with it? haha so been wanting one for ages.

Um, yes and no- I know that SMA is making a F90 rifle, but all my 'contacts' said that while it was trialed by the 2nd Commando Regiment they still carry M4A1's instead. 

 

So no, the F88 and F90 will not be included as part of the factions weaponry because they were not actually adopted, only trialed, by the 2 CMDO-I've spoken to some of them in person myself about it (Early/mid 2015) and they all carried M4A1's.

None of the 2nd Commando Regiment soldiers I met personally had the F90- Not saying they don't exist in Armory somewhere, but they were trial weapons, not adopted. 

 

On the positive side, the F90 is coming to SMA in the future, meaning that you will have them if you want them- I do have a faction coming that does use modern bullpup rifles though, watch this space.

Directed to whoever's been uploading these to Arma3.de - I dont mind or anything, and you can continue doing it, but if you can post that 'X faction is now on Arma3.de as Y file address' it would be nice, so that way I can keep the main page links up-to-date.

Happy birthday to me. Have a faction. 

 

3lCHrvL.jpg

A Special Operations Forces Faction [SFF] that adds the Australian 2nd Commando Regiment and the New Zealand Special Air Service. The 2nd Commando are based on a 2015 Afghanistan deployment, while the NZ SAS are based on a 2011 mission to Kabul. 

Historical Info-

The Australian 2nd Commando Regiment were formed in 2009, and are under the command of SOCOMD. Their most recent highly publicised operation during the Shah Wali Kot Offensive in June 2010 before Australia began to withdraw it's forces from the country in late 2013, but some Commandos and NZ SAS remain in the country. 

The Faction-


The 2nd Commando Regiment have a similar role to the US 75th Rangers- to draw out and engage enemy forces supported by specialist elements like the NZ SAS. They are armed primarily with the M4A1 and CQBR Carbines, with the HK417 and M14 EBR, as well as the Minimi, in supporting roles. They wear Multicam uniforms and have Australian flag patches on their helmets and uniforms. 

Specialist Elements-

The 2nd Commando Regiment often trains and deploys with the Special Air Service Regiment, so the New Zealand SAS are the recon and intelligence gathering element for the Commandos, and they are geared the same as a 2011 mission to to Benghazi, where they used CQBR's and Multicam uniforms, with OD helmets and plate carriers. They also carry USP-45 Tactical's as their primary sidearm. 

Supports-

Both NZ SAS and 2 Commando are based on highly mobile fighting, using LSV's and ATV's for fast re-positioning and having access to a UH-60 Blackhawk and CH-47 Chinook for air transport. They have a Sniper/Spotter team if needed. 

Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name 2C ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.

Thanks to the former Project Overwatch team for the Australian gear you donated for this mod. 

 

News- Israeli Shayetet 13 are coming along well. Once they release I plan to stop procrastinating about the SEAL overhaul update and get that done and out.

Happy b-day jarrad. One request though. Can you see about getting all your mods upped to Armaholic? Think there are a few that aren't.

Yeah, they get added to Armaholic gradually- I'm not actually in control of that, the Armaholic guys are (Meaning Foxhound)

 

Also, would you all be interested in some throw-back factions?

For example, I was thinking of doing CAG ('Delta Force') from the 90's, with the old clamshell M4A1's and black crash helmets, Black-Hawk down style, but then doing them a second time (as a modern faction, Pacific deployment)

Do you mean the flag that 1mm off-centre on the velcro?

That is one of the helmets from PH- I didn't notice that when I was making the units, so I don't that it's that big of an issue.

Oh, is that a bug?

I thought it was supposed to be dirt or something- I'll ask the guy I got it from if it's intentional.

Some WIP work on the 1990's CAG (commonly known as 'Delta Force') faction (Circa 1992)

ccYoW39.jpg

 

Still very early on, this is more of a mock up/ looks test than the actual faction right now. 

 

On some of the Armaholic tags-

-The 'Central African Rebels' are not 'fictional', but based on the Anti-Balaka movement from the real life nation of the Central African Republic in 2012. I just named them Central African Rebels for legibility reasons, as calling them 'Anti-Balaka' all the time gets annoying.

-Both Hezbollah and African Rebels are tagged as 'independent' when they are OPFOR. 

-The 75th Rangers are tagged as 'Marine Raiders' for some reason.

These Ops Cores are from the original SOTG A2 addon, the textures have been passed backwards and forwards and chopped and changed from paa's to tga's to png's to jpegs etc that's why there's pixelation occuring on these textures :f:

How close do you actually want/need to be to notice these slight blemishes? 
yes they're fixable, just use the original textures, don't upscale to 4096 x 4096 just keep them at 2048 x 2048
