Intro

After releasing most of my addons individually, i have decided to group the released content together. As know i have enough to reflect all branches of the Nogovan Armed Forces.

This is the release topic for my Nogovan Armed Forces Project, this a continuation of my Nogovan Armed Forces Project from OFP. The aim of this Project is to create an Armed Forces that is representative of the Nogova Repuplic in a Modern World.

*The Nogovan Republic Consists of Nogova, Everon and Malden.

Brief History

"Following the wars that ravaged the islands in the 1980′s, it was decided that the old militia system of weekend warriors with a minimum of training was insufficient to ensure the defence of the Nogovan Republic. Permanent armed forces based on universal conscription were therefore established, built around a core of former FIA guerilla’s and returned expatriate officers.

The modest resources of the islands of Nogova, Everon and Malden preclude massive investment into modern armaments, leading to an emphasis on acquiring smart soldiers rather than smart weaponry. Rigorous and extensive training programs have been developed to ensure that raw recruits are brought to a high professional standard with a variety of military skills. In joint exercises with Western militaries Nogovan draftees have outperformed the foreign regular counterparts on multiple occasions.

All soldiers must pass an extended basic training for a period of six months before entering advanced military training. Part of the soldiers are then enrolled in the combat arms, part in the supporting services. Due to the relatively long ininital training all forces have a firm background in basic infantry skills regardless of their subsequent specialisation.

The main part of recruits enter the light infantry which provides soldiers with training for operations in both alpine and desert conditions. Nogovan light infantry doctrine places a high value on dispersed and independent operations by platoon sized units against numerically superior or more heavily armed forces, mimicking the resistance tactics developed in the wars against the Soviets.
Part of the troops are assigned to the armoured corps, which specialises in combined operations with tanks and armoured personnel carriers.

The Nogovan Light Horse endorses fast aggressive tactics to quickly disrupt airborne or amphibuous invasions before initial assault forces are able to establish a firm bridgehead. Its reliance on brute force contrasts with the more fluid tactics of the rest of the army.

After basic military training and the light infantry course the best and brightest of the recruits can volunteer for service with the airborne company, undergoing extensive advanced training imparting airborne and amphibuous infiltration techniques, demolitions skills and use of foreign weaponry and equipment. Endurance and initiative are highly stimulated in airborne candidates, a high number of which eventually enter non commissioned – and subaltern officer training courses at the Viktor Troska Military Institute."

If i must say, in my opinion the textures on the re skinned CDF soldiers isn't very good. The uniform helmet and in particular the helmet straps looks like someone has just sprayed them. I'd try to make differences to the CDF model such as removing the comms mic or changing the webbing or body armor.

Also the models for the crew and paras have czech republic flash on their arm.

Maybe even keeping a Russian helmet or something but that's just my 2 cents

The CDF reskin was my first ever reskin please allow for it, i cant remove the mic or change the webbing or body armour as its a BIS model, you cant edit them.

I know of the czech republic flash, its on my things to do, but its only a minor issue.

Also regarding Russian helmets, id rather not have any references to Russian units, if you read the History of my Nogovan Units you would see my reasoning, also this project is a continuation of what i created for OFP.

I would just like to state that Mig-21 is not my work as stated above. Its a refurbished FDFMod OFP model, given to me by Wld427 to use it freely for Molatian (Isla Duala faction) and Lingor airforces (GAL & ARL factions) and I'm extremely thankful to him. Later Wld427 decided to give permission to R0adki11, too. I just sent in on request in original form - as I got it in the first place.
So, full credit list for it should read: Wld427 for A2 conversion, FDF mod for model, ČŠLA mod for textures.
IceBreakr, C/O [SBP] - Slovenian Black Panthers (www.vojak.si)

OUT NOW for A3: Isla Duala 3.3 | Island Panthera v3.1
WIP: Isla Abramia, Lingor, Tonal Legend, Isla Balkania, Keystone, Jade Groove 3, Ibis World, Rowalla.

You use CDF's russian body armour though and most of the BTR is Russian and the trucks are czech warsaw pact!!!

Oh and i thought your ofp Nogovan units were awesome by the way.

Maybe you can get someone else to help you with the textures[COLOR="Silver"]

Infact, i'd keep the czech soldiers as the light infantry but make them less shiny. I like this mod, its different and interesting. Keep up the good work

Thankyou for your comments, there will be a mixture of east and west kit, as the nogovan army can't afford new things. So using what resources they have available. Please see my website http://naf.8bit-online.co.uk which has an order of battle. I may get rid of CDF Reskins for reskined Czech troops for light infantry. I'm not sure what you mean they are too shiny, they look fine on my PC on High or Very High graphic settings, also I have had no other reports regarding this.

keep watching for updates.

I've just double checked the Paras config no Czech magazines present, please make sure you have the latest version, an earlier version may have had some, the latest doesn't.
