The East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) is the initial enemy faction in Operation Flashpoint: Red River, comprised primarily of local militants, forming an insurgent force. They are also seen in the Rolling Thunder series of Fire-Team Engagment. As the PLA start to become a threat to the USMC, the ETIM then fade away from the campaign entirely. Their weapons often jam due to poor maintenance.
The ETIM do not use any sidearms.
