Squad Turkey announced implementation of Turkish Armed Forces in upcoming mod

Recommended Posts

The link to the announcement here: http://forum.squadturkiye.com/showthread.php?tid=13

 

Now I'm wondering if this is indeed anything official from the (international) Squad team or is this rather a mod than anything official? If yes, what kind of conflicts will this conclude? TAF vs PKK or more likely some fictional warfare against maybe Russian Armed Forces or a Syrian based conflict?

 

I'm pretty happy about this announcement anyway, wether this is a mod or not. I think as Turkey is the 2nd largest NATO member and has one of the most important geo-strategic territory this will contribute to some really new experience we didn't have in Project Reality. Also seeing that Squad has introduced the G3 it will reduce some work since TAF mainly uses the G3 as primary rifle atm., but it will soon be replaced by the MPT-76. 

 

Greetz,

Highly doubt it, SquadTurkiye is not part of OWI or officially affilated with Squad.

That and I doubt we'll see more NATO factions after the british for a time, they all kind of use the same stuff, I'd much more prefer China and perhaps a south american faction (Argentina / Brazil?)

I'd love to see a nordic faction but that's a dream far far away I think :D

That is nothing official on our end. 

 

Maybe they mean they will do it as a full conversion rather than an additional mod?

 

I will have a read!

Unfortuately I do not think that is the case, but I could also be wrong.

 

(Badly) translated, from the last post there: "This project is not a mode of production. Make content will be added as an official Squad."

Yeah, that's what it kinda says. Have you talked with them by now IrOnTaXi?

I just hope Squad eventually adds a faction that primarily uses battle rifles for the sake of gameplay.

 

Like for the MEC in PR, they excelled at long distance engagements, but we're limited when it came to CQC combat.

Are there any news? Did you guys talk with "Squad Turkey" and their intentions? They still seem to claim that this is an official implementation...

That's confusing, is it official or not? 

 

No, it isn't Official.

 

The devs have been saying that they're willing to add high quality mods to the game as official content for a long time. That's what Ir0nTaxi is talking about, if SquadTurkiye make a Turkish Faction mod by themselves, then OWI would be willing to add it to the game if it's high enough quality.

Thanks for the clarification. :) In fact it's way better to see the worth of quality of the project first. Coz, apart from the blurry announcement we have nothing to see. As a modder from Total War community all i could say is such projects are a long run and requires a dedicated team and countless hours of hard work.

 

I hope they achieve the goals what they aimed. And in the future and if the devs allow such works to add the game official content it may create a genuine competition for such people and groups to create even more quality content for the fellow Squadies. Modders are blessing for many games and community.

 

Godspeed chaps,

I think the Turkish armed forces use the G3 and MG3(and PKM if memory serves).

That's right, our army uses the G3 and its variants as the main rifle. Some troops and special forces already operate with the MPT-76, according to latest news, by 2017, the MPT-76 will be the main rifle in the infantry and replace the G3. They are already in production.
