Default Why Dubai? How ED decides on which map to make.

Is Eagle Dynamics predicting a large scale conflict in that area in the near future?

Kind of wish they worked on a Korean war map for the mig and saber and possibly a Vietnam map for the Huey/mig21 and upcoming phantom.

Edit: I think my mind has been changed from the valid arguments below. I did end up buying the map due to this.

Because they planned it to compliment their new F18 module/carrier. Plus it adds Iran for the upcoming F14.

And a lot of promotional capital exist there, wouldn't be surprised some of it was dropped in ED:s pockets...

Tinfoil hats on!

I highly doubt it, but if true, I wish the city of Fulda had the same tourism budget!

The Strait of Hormuz is a major world flashpoint. The U.S. has been in a cold war with Iran for almost 40 years now, so it's very much a relevant theater.

It could well be.


And ED was right about Crimea (in the Flanker series)...

On 2011-12, was the Strait of Hormuz dispute, that was "use" by ED to build a "plausible" map of a "what if" the dispute will be turn "hot".
