Obvious next question from the kids: how large is the usable low-quality area of these maps? And what happens when you reach the edge of the map, the game just reverses your flight direction so you bounce/tilt back at the edge? Never tried to do that yet

Interesting. I tried to fly around some of the central parts of Iran (northern areas of the PG map) with the hornet. Ran out of fuel. Twice. There is a lot to improve in my DCS skills

You can always check the unlimited fuel option. Then put her in auto pilot

Great link. Thanks.

I wonder if they have different sizes.

Like F-5 inspired design or C-130 inspired design.
The F-35 slick curves are quite recognizable on this one tho...
