Yeah I guess its a bit more realistic. They parked em off the Kuwaiti coast too during the various Desert Storms, but its a risky thing putting a carrier into restricted water like that. I guess in both cases they figured they were safe enough from ASM's.

They did not disclose the actual position.
The interesting part with a "Balkans" or "Adriatic" map is the aircraft involved are pretty much available already, from the A-10 to the F-14B... ok, you need to abstain from the use of HMDs and the A-10C is a tad bit too modern, but that is true for Desert Storm, as well.
Serbs flew MiG-21bis, MiG-29 and some older jets, though most action was hide and seek with the armor and artillery pieces. If we get some more options with neutral faction and civilian models, you could even implement the difficulty of ROE restrictions effectively.

Yeah I agree that balkan/adriatic map would be cool. Allied force and all that, plus hypotheticals too or croats vs serbs or whatnot. I just think size wise it might too big, especially if you include bits of Italy.

As for ROE, well, DCS airliner shootdowns will be a common thing all too sadly.
