Default How big are these maps?

Does anyone have all maps? And if so how big are they compared to the Caucasus? Would love to know...

Georgia 14.8 GB (15,952,080,896 bytes)
NTTR 33.8 GB (36,381,687,808 bytes)
Strait of Hormuz 22.3 GB (24,038,408,192 bytes)

The latter likely to get bigger as airports, airbases and so on are added.

Thanks for the input.
I should've had been more accurate in my question. Was referring to the geographical size. It says that the Normandy map is 267 x 348 kilometers but no such information regarding the rest.

Oh whoops, I do beg your pardon, I just had that in mind from seeing others ask how much drive space to expect to be eaten.

NTTR 605 x 605 km
Normandy 267 x 348 km
Strait of Hormuz 550 by 550 km
Georgia 500 x 500 km*

*this one I did a little googling and got that from a forum post, not sure how accurate. As for the top two I got those from an ED tester's post in a thread, which was below someone stating the size of SoH, which was not contested.

From what I hear from guys who own the NTTR map it's the smallest! Hmmm...

The following link is an online-map with the maps from a selection for flight combat simulators and flight combat games:

https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer...mMq-NSwixdUHmU

It allows easy comparison and you can toggle on/off the different layers to look for specific features.

Yes, that seemed odd too, I think that perhaps the figure I got for NTTR may have been the overall size, including the low fidelity coverage. As each region could be considered to have two sets of coverage dimensions.

Actually I would like the maps to be twice as large. I would gladly throw away some of the more detailed buildings to get maps at the same digital size but twice as large.

I can't seem to find it now but I'm sure I read that the SoH map was more like 110 GB to download/install ?

It is specifically due to this number I read (somewhere on DCS Website) that I haven't purchased this map because it would only leave me with 10 GB of space on my already half-filled SSD.

Can someone please clarify the True File Size ?

Furthermore, does anyone know if it is possible to Uninstall a Map OR redirect where a map is installed ?
If it came down to it, I'd gladly Uninstall Normandy to create space to allow me to install SoH "IF" the file is as large as I thought.

EDIT>> Actually I just found what I was looking at in the Recommended System Requirements section where it states "Free hard disk space: 120 GB on Solid State Drive (SSD)". On the other hand for the MINIMUM System Requirements it says "Free hard disk space: 60 GB".

So why the discrepancy ? Where did you come up with 22.3 GB for SoH Map ?
That is a HUGE difference in required Drive Space.
