The West Asian Pact is an alliance between the nations of Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and Iran who are trying to earn their place in the large family of Comintern-member states by developing their own modern weapons, but still buying most of their equipment from Soviet Union & UASR to wage war with WLA and the Coalition of Arab Monarchies. While consisting primarily of the communist states in the Mideast, the West Asian Pact operates insurgencies throughout the Middle East and North Africa with the help of Revolutionary Vanguard advisors. The West Asian Pact is based on the Arabian Socialist Government created by Tim the Grim Reaper and has been reimagined by Cervantes99.

Background

Units

IconHAF.png
Artachsatra The basic rank and file trooper of the Socialists, the Artachsatra is armed with a standard ADK-45 assault rifle. They prefer to fire in three shot bursts as opposed to hosing down an enemy. In the close quarters the troopers are armed with retractable spears which they are trained to use, killing enemy infantry in slightly longer ranges than enemies with swords, and can run to the garrisoned structures and clear them out using these long melee weapons.

Mourabitoun Wearing their distinctive red helmets and lizard-pattern uniforms, these Lebanese militiamen are the both the anti-armor specialists and minelayers of the West Asian Pact. Mourabitoun have been armed with scoped LAWS from the UASR and a supply of Iraqi-made M-06 Pit Viper general ordinance land mines which are effective against both infantry and vehicles.

Nineveh Soldier Using MANPADS to shoot down passing aircraft and smgs when pressed by ground targets, Nineveh soldiers can fire direct penetration missiles that can deal increased damage but have a higher chance of missing the target altogether.
IconHAF.png
Revolutionary Nun Officers from the Pact's Libyan cells, these brave women come equipped with Revolutionary Vanguard supplied trench guns which they can use to gun down any infantry who stand in their way. Thanks to their rather *ahem* revealing uniform, the Nun can both distract enemy troops and give allies a boost in morale.

Bogatyr Heavy-Duty Truck Large trucks purchased from America, Bogatyrs were localized for the Middle East's environment and are used for carrying supplies and ore. The large flatbed and strong engine enables to carry more cargo than other trucks, if at slightly slower pace, but Socialists mounted a small machine gun behind the cabin to protect it from any attack by the WLA or Alliance. When the commander has more trucks than he needs for transporting ore, the soldiers can load them up with crates with all sorts of ammunition, spare parts, fuel tanks which would be invaluable on the battlefield.
IconHAF.png
Mattock Tank Licensed Arab made versions of the compass tanks, the Mattock is a fast and maneuverable tank that can smoothly move through the desert and engage enemy armor. Inferior to modern tanks in firepower and armor, Mattock is easy to produce and armed with powerful 115mm guns, and can outmaneuver and attack an enemy tank's weak spots to win the day. When friendly infantry is nearby, Mattocks boosts their morale, making them less susceptible to suppression and even offering two soldiers to be carried on inside, thought they cant fire out at all.
IconHAF.png
Raider APC This APC is well suited for battle in the desert, the Raider is armed with pair of heavy machine guns which need to be manned by transported infantry to fire and a GOOP launcher otherwise. It is quick enough to keep up with Mattock tanks and deliver the infantry to the battlefield, though it's not even armored compared to a tank. When destroyed, Raider becomes an immobile bunker, allowing all infantry inside to fire out. This state can't be reversed.

Hare Tank Hunter Armed with two large missile launchers, Hare is a converted American Grant Tank Destroyer designed to hunt armored targets, quickly get to the flanks and target the weak rear. The design required a large space on the back to house the missiles, making the launchers turn only in 90 degree, making it best when used for flanking engagements. The guided missile it fires penetrates armor before detonating and thus ignores the effects of directional armor, inflicting the same amount of damage no matter where it hits. When ordered, the tank commander can use the supercharger built into the engine to boost the tank's speed for a short time, at the expense of maneuverability. The friendly infantry which will be nearby the tank destroyer can pick up ammunition from spare ammo boxes kept on the hull, increasing their fire rate.
IconHAF.png Grudge AAA Truck With the deposit of Soviet Matryoshka missiles delivered from Iran, the Arabs were able to effectively mount the missiles on a flatbed of a truck, creating a potent long-range anti-aircraft weapon system. The Grudge needs to deploy to fire the missiles with components of Matryoshkas vertically (similarly to V4) before the tracking system kicks in and guides the missile to its intended target. This process makes it vulnerable to all ground forces, not being able to target and engage them in any way, and have to unpack to drive away, if its slow movement gets it to safety. Nearby infantry and light-medium vehicles receives bonus to their defense as Grudge drivers always carry some additional sandbags and shovels for making foxholes.

Retaliation Howitzer Several Furnace Tanks which Syria obtained were converted into turreted SPGs, widening the tracks and incorporating a turret with a 180mm howitzer to bombard enemy units with shrapnel shells. On detonation, the shrapnel knocks down infantry in wide radius and outright kills those unlucky ones close to the detonation. For its formidable anti-infantry firepower, it suffers against heavily-armored vehicles and reinforced structures (against these it can use high explosive ammunition). An unique trait is that engineers have modified the firing mechanism so that for a short amount of time, the gun crew can depress the barrel and use the cannon as a long-range shotgun. It's power and range in this configuration are not to be underestimated. The shrapnel shells in any mode degarrison buildings.

Lion Heavy Tank Solely produced by the Syrians, Iraqis, and Lebanese (but designed with the help of the rest of the Internationale) to follow the lighter tanks and give them support, the Lion is a fast (despite its designation and size) and strong vehicle, able to compete with any MBT on equal terms. To achieve the high speed, armor thickness is lower than expected, utilizing a sloped armor more than current Soviet tanks use to deflect most incoming shots, and return fire on the enemy with a potent 152mm gun. If the situation gets too hot, the Lion tank commanders are authorized to fall back and leak a portion of their fuel reserves behind and then set it ablaze, making a lethal flame wall. However, once this is done, the tank is more slower for a period of time before refueling.
IconHAF.png
Super-Hind Helicopter Gunship The Syrian version of the Soviet Hind-D went through complete overhaul and redesign to accommodate the wing pylons with four more machine guns along with the Gatling gun on the nose to tear apart all infantry and light vehicles in seconds. As a field option, there is a kit distributed to the helipads to rearm Super-Hind with the 57mm fixed cannon on the belly, replacing the Gatling gun, and the machine guns replaced with unguided missile launchers, to change its role into dedicated anti-armor. The cost of this kit is as expensive as Super-Hind itself, and can't be changed back.

Buildings

IconHAF.png
Dune Fortress The nerve center of Socialist forces, these fortresses are hastily built in deserts to keep an area under West Asian Pact control, housing a platoons of soldiers in the underground sections along with all vehicles dispatched to the area.
IconHAF.png
Steelworks The Bogatyr trucks brings their cargo in at the works, where the ore is processed and then converted to fund the Socialist efforts.
IconHAF.png
Regimental Fighter Port When the aerial support is available to the communist Arabian forces, Regimental Fighter Ports are utilized by the Super Hinds and when the Iranian Air Force arrives, for their MiGs. Soviet Union exported to them their repair drones, assigning one to each airpad for maintenance of helicopters and fighters.
IconHAF.png
Arabian Sentry Gun A modified Soviet Sentry Gun that has gotten increased elevation and replaces the twin 14.5mm guns with twin 23mm autocannons and is automated by the same processes that allow Drones to remain automated.
IconHAF.png
Flak Turret A single large 130mm flak gun, the Flak Turret is highly destructive against groups of enemy aircraft and with a high rate of fire thanks to a great autoloading system. The explosive flak shells are particularly deadly against bunched up fixed wing aircraft, though if they need to; they'll load up and fire more solid shells to deal with heavier aircraft
IconHAF.png
Iranian Tesla coil These Tesla coils are of a different make than those used by the standard communist international. Indeed, they can actually lash out thrice every time they fire, or fire much less damaging but vehicle paralyzing bolts to prevent enemies from getting anywhere.
IconHAF.png
Field Gun Emplacement The Socialists are fond of placing a battery of three large 152mm field guns down to secure the area from any rebel attacks. Partially dug in and surrounded by a sand bags with camo netting above, the emplacement is well-protected against enemy fire, if larger than standard defenses, giving it enough time to destroy armored targets from long distances by crushing their armor beneath the weight of their mighty shells, while aircraft can be aimed at by the skilled crew to be blasted with flak shells. Enemy infantry are hardly safe either, as the Socialists added attached machine guns to scythe down approaching infantry.

Iranian Space Marines Reinforcements

When the rank and file of the west asian pact are in trouble, the Iranian Space Marines can dispatch a unit of specialized warriors and vehicles via orbital gravity drops. Even including specialized jets modified as space planes and powerful superheavy vehicles.

IconHAF.png
Machine Gunner Elite power armored soldiers from the Iranian Space Marines, the Machine Gun comrade uses a powerful 12.7mm machine gun that's quite easy to use with the powered space suit and powerful anti-asteroid demolition charges which can devastate structures and vehicles they can catch, while the machine gun heavily suppresses everything they fire it at.
IconHAF.png
Flash Comrade Using a cheaper form of battlesuit than the mainstream Tesla Comrade, the Tesla Immortal doesn't have enough juice to create an EMP effect and their Tesla weapon is somewhat weaker than the normal Tesla trooper, but the Tesla Immortal can give enemies a deadly electro-knuckle sandwich that will instantly kill most infantry and devastate most vehicles.
IconHAF.png
Multigunner IFV An Iranian concept for a transport, the Multigunner IFV takes on the weapon of the first squad to garrison it, enhancing it for added firepower while the other squad it carries comes along for the ride. When empty the Multigunner IFV strikes with a ferocious 40mm autocannon.
IconHAF.png
Furnace Tank The bedrock of the WFRIA, the Furnace Tank serves in Iranian armed forces as a main battle tank, only modified for the intense heat instead of arctic cold (heaters being replaced by air-conditioners) as well as surviving orbital drops. The Iranian Furnace tank has new, powerful ERA armour packs that help it deflect incoming shells with ease, while smoke grenade launchers further add to its survivability.
IconHAF.png
Battle Station An interwar superheavy vehicle, the Battle Station uses a fixed; heavy gatling gun to shred infantry, battlesuits, and light vehicles and anti-air/anti-tank missiles to supplement the firepower of four multigunner batteries that activate when the vehicle is garrisonned, and its heavy armour is virtually impervious to lighter, punier vehicles.
IconHAF.png
Vulture MiG Fighter The standard air superiority fighter of the Communist International has undergone some changes to serve in the west asian pact. But the changes don't end with sand filters. This MiG Fighter was turned into a multi-role aircraft, replacing the Matryoshka missiles with Cheburashka missiles, which can be used on both air and ground targets with the same ease, tearing through vehicle formations. These changes earned it the name "Vulture" as it seemed to circle around Alliance and WLA military formations taking their toll as needed.
