You would have to try and find someone from RRG and ask why they picked it. ED picked it up as it was part of the Kickstarter, and they have tried to honor that the best the could.

Thinking of all the different possibilities for theatres during WWII, it seems Normandy was the flattest, most featureless one available? Even Northern Africa would have more scenery features than Normandy?

No harm intended, I personally have no interest in flying around over dead flat fields as far as the eye can see, even thou I am a huge Spitfire fan and intend on grabbing it possibly.
I guess the WWII guys will pipe up and put me in my place...but I watch the vids and think 'really?'. Some guys must REALLy want to re-live the D-Day invasion, over any other conflict of WWII.

I suppose the same could be said for the fact I am hanging out for the F-14 and associated theatre....which will be a carrier out in the middle of the ocean. But that is kinda where F-14's fly from...WWII happened a lot of places!

Can't wait to soar the Spit along the DCS Cliffs of Dover. For now the green hills of Dover will do. It's recognisable though, just like the pier.

Bonjour

The maps most 'populated' northern parts seem to be Le Havre and a bit east to Rouen.
Most of the detail is south of that in France.

I'm hoping for an early timing. I took the afternoon off, but I have band practice in the evening...
