Very true. Since doing so the "quality" of the flying and experience has gone way, way up.

Are you ready to take your chopper flying skills to the next level?

@Holton181: There are lots of great Red Flag missions and campaigns which made me buy Nevada map and I don't regret it. It made me a better pilot jumping into USAF procedures and NTTR world - I learned a lot. I'm going to buy PG too as I heard of great missions waiting for me there. Also you can find missions with random turns of events so everything is possible.

www.digitalcombatsimulator.com user files section... dozens of missions, especially multiplayer that use dynamic scripts and randomization.
Same website, ED Shop... campaigns, with complex, entertaining story driven missions.
And if you still need more, the mission editor and scripting engine, combined with something like MOOSE for DCS are powerful tools to taylor your individual randomized mission... if you are willing to learn a bit.
For quick and easy randomized missions there is actually a mission generator in the main menu, allowing for creation of a typical blue vs. red with a couple adjustable parameters. The created random mission allows for optional tweaking and editing in the Mission Editor...

My vote is eastern Afghanistan. I served in all the RCs, but honestly, this is the area that is the most interesting to fly in in my opinion. Mountains are a challenge, especially for helicopter pilots, near the ground, supporting operations.

No offense at all to my brothers and sisters in other RCs, at whatever time in history, but just my feeling thinking about the time I've spent there. Eastern Afghanistan feels different, and is what I think about whenever I think of that country.

That said, I'll be happy with whatever we get.
