Silent War: Polish-Belarusian Conflict

Recommended Posts

logo_sw_256px.png

 

The war is imminent. Belarus moves it’s troops on Polish border. Poland stands alone as her allies are engaged in conflicts in other parts of the world. Nation needs it’s saviour. Are you up for the challenge?

 

On behalf of development team, I'm proud to announce the new release from Silent War mod!

 

Silent War is a modification for Operation Flashpoint  developed since 2002 by @SW_Gemenis The mod focuses on fictional conflict between Poland and Belarus - two neighbouring countries which are allied with opposing world power. Thus this hypothethical scenario is still being prepared for by military planners on both sides of the border. Silent War aims to bring realistic and respectful portrayal of both Polish and Belarusian armed forces, without unnecessary moralizing.

On Valentine's Day 2021 we have released Polish Light Infantry Teaser - our first official release since 2006, and a gift to everyone who supported us during all these years.

 

Polish Army light infantry is an often forgotten and underfunded arm of Polish army, yet one that is still going to experience the majority of fights in defense of Poland. Our brave soldiers are equipped with variants of Beryl rifle, PKM general-purpose machinegun, SVD and SWD-M sniper rifles, and the legendary RPG-7. Light infantry relies on it's small footprint and mobility, when compared to "heavy" mechanized infantry. Thus in this release you'll also find Honker 2N - a small 4x4 utility truck, and Star 944 - a medium cargo truck.

Currently Silent War is developed by small, yet dedicated team lead by @SW_Gemenis who is leading this effort since 2002 - a sure sign of his commitment.

 

 

However current release wouldn't be possible without help given to us from other kind people:

  • Adam Rucki - Militech font
  • Bohemia Interactive - 2D and 3D art
  • @Jackal326 and SJB team - sounds
  • JAM team - configs and sounds
  • @kenoxite - configs, scripting, sounds, 2D art
  • @Macser - animations and scripting
  • OFPL team - 2D, 3D art, configs and sounds
  • OFrP team - sounds
  • @sanctuary and WW4 team - 2D, 3D art, animations, configs and sounds

 

We would also like to thank to the people who's work is not yet available in Silent War, but who gave us enormous help in creating Belarusian army addons. Those people are Kanstancin "Karolstah" and Serg @=SappeR=

 

Also big thanks to former developers and contributors (in no particular order): Grey, Christoph, Pawel Ryszka, MaRcin, Arika, Raddar, SeaDemon, Towarzysz Szumek, Offtime, Ofman, Devek, Smookie, Alderous, Panda, Hawk, Sejtan, TomiD, Ktos, Sigma-6, Turkish Union Mod.

Thank you once again for your help @Macser we owe quite a bit!

 

For anyone wondering, here's one thing that wouldn't be possible if not Macser: a new hand animations for Polish Light Infantry grenadier.

I've been playin around with the addons in the editor. Very high quality work all round. Even for a "teaser" there's enough there for a mission builder to create some decent missions. Kudos to all involved. 😉

Thanks for kind words everyone!

 

Speaking of missions, while at the moment there is no "OPFOR" to the light infantry in the pack, anyone interested in creating some missions with SW should definitely check out Karolstah's Belarusian Army Pack (requires ICP/ORCS weapons). His magnificent addon is what we're basing our upcoming Belarusian infantry on.

Quoting myself from the very first post:

Honker actually comes in two variants (hard-top and soft-top), and there are guns too, naturally (also custom ammo boxes in Empty).

Our intelligence reports increased military activity in western Belarus. Here's one of the photos captured by informants.

 

BLR-060521.png

 

Our analysts recognized that the photographed individuals and their vehicles are part of Belarusian Ground Forces light infantry. Man in the foreground is probably a team leader - his equipment (modern light-weight LBE of local manufacture) and armament (AK-74N rifle capable of mounting optics) is a testimony of a fast modernisation effort led by Belarusian Armed Forces. Vehicles are typical for light infantry, and other units of Belarusian army: UAZ-469 4x4 of Soviet vintage, and modern Belarusian MAZ-5316 light truck.

 

Stand-by for more intel, which will be posted on our Facebook page.

Happy Polish Armed Forces Day!

 

To celebrate it, Silent War is releasing a small patch to our previous Polish Light Infantry Teaser.

 

POL-15082021.png

 

Some things need fixing.

 

One of the most important changes in this patch is a completely reworked pistol holstering script written by our friend @prototype1479.  Thank you! We have also added a new standing reload animation by @stgn - also huge thanks! Apart from that we have reworked several weapon sight textures, included a 16:10 aspect ratio version of them, and made a few small changes to the Polish Light Infantry units.

 

Our initial plan was to release Belarusian Light Infantry, however our magnificent artist @SW_Gemenis took it upon himself to remake the textures on all the weapons present in the mod. This, naturally, delayed the process of making Belarusian Army addons, and the release of Belarusian faction.

Faster than light!

 

In the mean time Gemenis was working on a few addons expanding the Polish Armed Forces faction, which will be released as a bonus soon. So you better behave nicely when celebrating Polish Armed Forces Day, or someone might fix you up!
