This is a difficult poll.

For the first time in DCS, maps merge.
Is it even possible to set up a mission the starts on the Afghanistan map and allows penetration into the Persian gulf map (Iran)?
A multimap mission!
A true invasion!
From this point of view the Iran and Afghan border must be included!

From a chopper simmer point of view the punishing mountains north/North east of Kabul look spectacular.
These mountains will school us chopper boys hot, high and hard when it comes to flying our choppers.

We need it all really!

Two comments.

One the current implementation of maps is one map per mission a merge or transit between maps is not supported, yet.

Two hot and high in Afghanistan's higher mountains, basically teaches you to ground the Huey, don't load weapons and too much fuel on the other Choppers currently... So careful, what you wish for. Even the south is challenging...

But if we could have several maps for single campaigns, it would be quite nice. Good results in one mission/map would transit you to the next taking place on another map. With the campaigns being just collections of individual missions, wouldn't this be possible already? Like some preparing missions on the NTTR with later deployment taking place on PG, all within the same campaign?

That should already be possible, campaigns is a sequence of missions. The MIZ file hold the info about required maps/Mods/addons.

I'm not really interested in western Afghanistan though.
This exactly!

If the map catches the South West and part of Balochistan and Iran, then campaigns can transition back & forth between the two maps.

Balochistan is Sunni, Iran Shia …
Baloch ethnic group spans all three countries and are active sectarian insurgents.

Hoping to see the east part of Afghanistan, i.e., Pakitya, Kabul, along with Northern Pakistan, i.e. Islamabad.

I don't know if it would fit, but having part of China or India would add more belligerents and stretch the amount of plausible scenarios in the sim.

Man, you have no idea, haven't you?
May want to watch "Lone Survivor" to get an idea of East Afghanistan, with its large wooded mountain ridges, the snow capped peaks and lush valleys.
North is something between prairie/savanna and steppe. The Hindukush with high(!) mountains and even Helmand with the Green Zone the area around the river Helmand where they farm citrus fruits, crop, vegetables and poppies en masse. Contrasted indeed, by the Dasht-e-margo, but then Kandahar province has more resemblence with southern europe inland.

Especially Afghanistan concentrates quite contrasting and different areas in one place, only there is no ocean, well, the indian ocean is close enough for carrier Ops, so we can hope they add it, without detailing India and Pakistan.
