Despite Wikipedia's inherit level of reliability, these 2 pages should at least be a guide of what assets can be kept from MEC and those that need be acquired otherwise:

- Army: Equipment of the Iranian Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Air Force: List of aircraft of the Iranian Air Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For starters it appears Hueys and Chinooks are far more common in Iranian service than Mi-17s.

Can't think of any reason why not, even without the ERA added it'd be sufficient for a first release IMO.

Nice source from the previous thread (http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f388...iran-army.html):

The many camouflages of Iran

Why do the field dressings need a re-skin? Different flag or something?

Sub-factions should be a low-priority IMO.

Regarding maps, PR has 3 MEC maps now:
- Kashan Desert (name of an Iranian desert)
- Jabal Al Burj (name of a place in Jordan)
- Muttrah City (located in Oman, other side of the gulf)

If this Iranian faction is to replace MEC then there's enough enough maps to not have to focus on creating more. Instead of focusing on the aspects which would make MEC Iranian.

There is a clear benefit in MEC being generic because it could fight in any location in the middle east. However PR is not restricted to a particular war scenario and we have Russia invading Beirut, so it's not too far fetched for Iran to fight across the region.

Wasn't quite thinking of a subfaction, but now that you mention it, it sounds like one. BTW, we aren't replacing the MEC.

This "Chocolate Chip" Camo is what I prefer then. Gotta see what Koroush says.

Yes, the MEC ones are Arabic I believe, the Iranian ones would have to be farsi.

I've read on alot of Iran Military forums that the Iranian army uses a pattern similar to OLD US army desert BDU. Now the US uses the digi camo, and Iran stuck with the old desert pattern.

I agree it does look good.


PS: We need A/some mappers for our basic team to be complete so we can start our sub section, common guys PM me your apps. This does not mean that we are not needing modelers and texture artists as well.

I have found people to do Iranian voices. But if you are still interested please apply.

Why not?

There's no point in keeping MEC if we have an Iranian faction that uses a significant amount of MEC equipment anyway.

The only thing that makes MEC worth keeping is it's generic nature, but there's nothing stopping Iran from partaking in battles across the Middle East in PR because there is no premise/story.

It's quite a tall claim to replace a whole faction. I guess it is a "we'll see."
