Sahrani Liberation Army
by IICptMillerII

The Sahrani Liberation Army (SLA) is the army of the fictional country of the Democratic Republic of Sahrani from the videogame Arma: Armed Assault made by Bohemia Interactive.
I decided to make this reskin because I've always liked the "generic OpFor" look of the SLA. The "lore friendly" loadout of the SLA is mechanized infantry in BMP-2s (Syrian 
Republican Guard formation) along with T-72M1s. However, all T-72 variants and the BMP-1 have been retextured as well to allow for flexibility when using the SLA.

This modpack will replace the following stock Syrian assets:
Regular and Reserve infantry
BMP-1
BMP-2
BRDM
T-72 (all variants)
Shilka
Special Forces (NOT Syrian airborne)

Voices:
In Arma, the SLA have hispanic heritage, thus speak Spanish. However, I have given them Russian voices and names as these assets are readily available from Combat Mission Red
Thunder and Combat Mission Black Sea. Going through the process of creating a whole new set of voices in Spanish would have taken me too long and been far too labor intensive.

Infantry:
Both Regular and Reserve Syrian infantry have been retextured to look like SLA soldiers. Regular infantry have their rifles model swapped to use the AK-74. This is purely a
cosmetic change, as the game still simulates them firing the 7.62mm round of the AKM. Additionally, the stock helmet texture has been remade by SaintFuller to model the Soviet
SSh-68 helmet. The textures for the helmet were made by SaintFuller and tweaked by myself. All other infantry textures were made by myself.

Vehicles:
Included are reskinned BMP-1s, BMP-2s, T-72s, BRDMs, and the Shilka. All textured by myself.  


Especas:
These are the Special Forces of the SLA. They are equipped primarily with AKS-74Us and wear green berets into combat instead of a combat helmet. The stock Syrian Special Forces
are used to represent the Especas. The AK-74Ms and helmets have been model swapped for the AKS-74Us and berets. The beret is from Combat Mission Battle for Normandy with the
retexturing done by myself. The AKS-74U model is from Shock Force 2. All other Special Forces textures were made by myself.


Known Bugs:
Sometimes, swapped model textures will "flicker" when viewed from a distance or from up close. To my knowledge there is no way to fix this. However, it is mostly unnoticable.

Usage:
You are free to use this mod how you like. If you use any assets from this to make your own mod, just be sure to give credit where it is due.

Lol, that's not me, z1812, but Cpt, if you don't mind, I'd gladly take credit!  Really nice!  Are those berets the ones that other fellow--sorry, can't recall his name--made a 3D model for?  Or did an import from a WWII title mdr's work like some weapons from CMA do?

I used the beret model from CMBN. The one made by @Saint_Fuller had a sheen to the texture that I couldn't get rid of in photoshop. Fuller is the author for the SSh-68 helmet model that is used by the mod.

Awesome CptMiller! Then the Dutch army as a basis for the RACS? ;)

Thanks! I don't have any plans on doing the RACS forces at the moment. Maybe another modder will come along and take that challenge on.

Perfect! These should be really good. Will be interesting to use them alongside @Oleksandr‘s Blufor reskin mods (assuming he takes a break from Black Sea and gives us some great mods on SF2)

If any one is ambitious and wants to enhance this mod set further (sorry I don't have the time right now) here is a link to the CMMODs CMBB site where someone had posted a set of Spanish voice files as part of mod set for the Spanish Blue division. I think I still have notes as to what each voice file said what for CMx1 if any one wants to give it a go and doesn't speak Spanish.

Respekt ++

I'm curious if anyone has made, or is working on, a Soviet conversion for the SAA. It seems like this game has the chops for a CM:A 2 reskin.

Someone should swap the blue in the UKR flag for green and call it Chernarus, xD.

Looks really good!

Is it maybe possible that someone can make fitting normal maps for the uniform?

 

Long time ago I downloaded a tool for creating these, but it never works out for me...

 

Greetings, alex

This looks terrific! I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but this helmet (Ssh-68) is the correct helmet that the Syrians should be using.  The stock helmet that came with the game is actually the Ssh-40, which has a much rounder front.

Checked your mod out man. Would like to compliment you on it. Great work, nice details - great job on those vehicles. But what I liked the most was - vests on that infantry. Nicely done.

Congrats, brother, I believe you just made CM modding history. I think you just may be the first modder to add a new piece of inform kit into the game. Nice work.

Now it is a  .man file.  What is that?

I just checked and it's a .7z file for me. That's what I uploaded and when I checked the download it downloads as a.7z file for me. No idea what a .man file is or why it's showing up like that for you.
