The Western world had been at the forefront of the planet for easily the last few hundred years. The colonial empires of Europe ruled the world and extended their fingers to the farthest reaches of Africa and Asia. They were the giants: they were unstoppable. And even as the West fought and destroyed itself on the battlefields of the First and Second World Wars, someone would still be alive to preserve the glory. For a time, that was the United States. As Europe squabbled amongst itself in the latter half of the 20th century, America reigned supreme. Of course, during the same time a new power was forming. The once-mighty empire of Persia had been relegated to obsolescence and foreign control for almost a century - something that the people did not take kindly to. In 1979, the people of Shahist Iran revolted to create the Islamic state that thrives today. Often at odds with the West, this new nation would quietly repair and become resurgent into the 21st century.

When the 2008 economic crisis hit, Iran became weakened as well. Yet as the years went on something could be felt changing. The West could be seen struggling. China, however, rose to match the stagnated United States. The two countries became superpowers in a new conflict mirroring the USSR and the US and their vies for power. Iran, too, prospered under China's wing. Their newly moderate-leaning government encouraged reform to power their new ambitions. They sent men into space where the United States and Europe had left it cold and barren. They sent more and more soldiers abroad to conflict zones to establish their presence as a peacekeeping force and ingratiate themselves with nearby governments. The novel phenomenon of a Persian state policing the Arabs instead of a Western one became increasingly prevalent as the years went on. During this time, China and Iran began to grow closer together. They formed CSAT - the Canton Protocol Security Alliance Treaty - as a counterweight to America's NATO and Russia's CTSO. Nations began to flock to CSAT for support, including such countries as Iraq and Azerbaijan. In the early 2030s when Turkey was hit by a massive earthquake, CSAT troops intervened to provide stability and security. Turkey left NATO for CSAT shortly thereafter - a shockingly unexpected upheaval in the geopolitical realm.

It is here where CSAT wishes to expand its influence westward to challenge NATO. An east wind blows upon the Balkans, upon bankrupt Greece, and upon the tiny island-nation of Altis. They, too, struggle with economic crises and military insurgencies. They had reached out to CSAT for support in these trying times, and CSAT was more than happy to oblige. Now they are involved in the crisis there, a flashpoint that threatens to throw the world into war again and forever change the balance of power between the dying West and the nascent East. A change is on the horizon: it is to be determined on the battlefields of Altis.

The CSAT Modification Project is something that I've been working on to create a more conventional aesthetic feel for the OPFOR faction in Arma 3: something that many people weren't too pleased with. This includes changing elements that seemed to be outlandish and out-of-place for the rest of the game like the Protector Helmets and the CSAT Fatigues. The assets included in this pack are designed to provide the familiar feel that people want, but still stay faithful to the BIS setting to allow for an appropriate enemy for the setting's BLUFOR to fight. This also facilitates replacement packs for campaigns and missions involving CSAT on 2035 NATO, since it'd be odd to have 2014 Iran versus a BLUFOR that's twenty years more advanced. So now comes the release after roughly two months of work.
