7 years ago, between 3rd and 6th April 2004, around 40 Polish and Bulgarian soldiers were fighting against unknown number of terrorists from Mahdi's Army. Our soldiers were defending the City Hall - most important government building in Karbala. They've succeeded without any losses. It is the biggest battle of Polish Army since WW2. Unfortunately, only few of the soldiers were awarded. By making this mod we're trying to give them more attention - they're worth of it.
To commemorate this anniversary we're proud to present our latest works:
Polski Kontyngent Wojskowy - Irak (version 0.75, 9th January 2011) Spoiler:
Soldiers from Polish Military Contingent - Iraq, latest version 0.75. Soldiers have various vests, helmets, hats and other equipment. Thanks to this fact, and hidden selections, we can have virtually hundreds of models in-game.
In near future they'll come with better textures of uniform and equipment, and later with more accurate models of vests.
Miho - textures, models
Krzychuzokecia - models, textures, config
Vilas - textures
Bielow - models
Based on Sanctuary's WW4 Modder Resource Pack - thank you!
May I inquire about the types of models & hidden selections
you are working on? I ask because I am looking for WW4 based
units that wear tactical vests & baseball caps or headsets that
can be used as PMCs or armed units in mixed civilian/military
I'm also interested in if/how you are planning to use textures
& hidden selections to customize your units (arm patches?
custom equipment textures?).
Thanks for the comments guys, it's nice to see such attention given to so few screenshots.
TBH I'm not satisfied with the textures quality, but then again, 512x512 is reasonable maximum for OFP engine.
At the time being, all models came with Sanctuary's WW4 Modder Resource Pack. We have some other things (thanks to Bielow), but it's hard to attach them to models without distorting it. As far as I remember, unfortunately there isn't any baseball cap, but it won't be hard to make one using Sanc's bandanna.
About hidden selections - what you see on second picture was made from... one model. I'm working on some kind of script that will change the equipment randomly, because now all variants are in config. But first thing is to find out good photos of equipment used by Polish Army. I know about backpacks (I even have one at home ), vests (but they're hard to model... But should come) and uniforms (question of changing the texture, but I can't make it nice...), but about pouches, magazine pockets (dunno how it's called in English), etc. - I know almost nothing. So you'll have to wait for them...
First post corrected, names of authors are written

You could also take a look at some of the Polish units created
for Arma/ArmAII for inspiration. You won't be able to directly use the
models or textures in OFP but they might give you some
ideas about equipment & weapons:
Thanks F00bar but we know about that addons Offtime's and Agent Smith's OFPL is one of the classic mods out here in Poland, and Vilas is the biggest donator for our mod, as you can see above. I've heard that AGS had some unreleased MLODs that he was likely to give, but he's for long time out from community.
And know for something that was shown yesterday on our site:
Bulgarian Forces Iraq
Early version of Bulgarian soldiers. They were lying on my HDD for quite a some time, but I wasn't satisfied with their quality. I've decided to show them to mark the 7th anniversary of the Battle for City Hall. Since Bulgarian army uses a lot of US equipment, they're more-less accurate, but they'll be modified to be even more accurate.
