I'm waiting to see what the two new maps are, but if ED are smart enough then they are making one late-war theater (late 1944 or 1945) to accommodate the already existing P51D and Bf109 K4 as well as the current FW 190, and one mid-war theater (1943) for the Spitfire Mk IX we already have and for the upcoming FW 190 A8, the Mosquito and, hopefully, the Bf 109 G. No aircraft would be out of place then. I just hope they're not making a map that would be too early for the Mk IX and the already announced planes. That would make no sense at all.

The P47D would then suit the Normandy map perfectly as well as the late war one. And if they ever make the Me 262 there would already be an appropriate map to use it with.

Sure an early-war map would be great to have, too. The Battle of Britain or invasion of France in 1940 come to mind, but that would require a few appropriate planes to go with which then would be useless expect if ED developed two early-war maps, which I don't think they would.

I wouldn't mind seeing some eastern front maps too, but we all know it's the other sim's territory so it might not be a good business decision for ED. But this still leaves open the massive Pacific theater (there's so many options that even the 2 big sims wouldn't need to compete there), from Pearl Harbor to 1945 and maybe even Burma.

Personally, I started playing DCS with the more modern aircraft, FC3 and all that, but now find the WW2 branch of the sim even more fun. Regardless of who prefers what era, the WW2 devs will never have to worry about stuff being classified

And it is the best theater of operations of WW2 for flight sims.

It is mid-war mostly, so the sides are pretty well matched. It has mountains, coastline, shipping lanes, relatively short flying distances, and on and on.
