Hope it gets more development than the one we have now. If you don't like coastline, you're SOL.

If you exclude coastline, you exclude the Western Front from 1940 to 1945.

Great. We can re-create the Normandy landings over and over.

I see a bridge! Is that the Rhine? Arnhem, Cologne, or Mainz my best guess. Some Western edge of the Ruhr valley. I lived close to Mainz, the area has rolling hills.

A Pacific theatre would be nice along with the Zero

It is not going to be the pacific. The entire planeset rolling out along with the assets pack is western front.

I am however curious that few seem to have picked up that Wags had a "Strait of Dover" icon on his menu for one of his Hornet streams not long ago. This would suggest a classic channel map, although I personally hope for something tilted a bit more north, towards Belgium and the Netherlands. But I got to be honest- the Normandy map was a crushing dissapointment after a very long wait, so I remain sceptical. Would love to be proven wrong though.

Most people don't recreate anything anyway. They just furball, except us groundpounders. And we never recreate anything either, we just pound the enemy ground forces.

So the map doesn't really matter if it looks good and period accurate enough. And since it probably will, I'll buy it anyway while waiting for the Mossie to drop

My guess is Belgium since the development was announced the same time blue nosed bastards of bodney was also released. Maybe they're going to make a second campaign for the p51/47 on a Belgium map for operation bodenplatte?
