Default Mont Saint Michel

Hi everyone !
On my first flight over my homeland Normandy in the Spitfire (God that plane is a pain) I noticed that the Mont Saint-Michel is not modelized in DCS.
It's kind of sad because it's a typical flying spot for every pilot over Normandy.
I know it is not really usefull in terms of WWII but since you guys did Alexander The Great's Castle and the Abbaye in Caen maybe you could add this particular famous destination for pilots.

Thank you very much.
Now, back in the Huey to find my parents house :-)
Best regards.

Simon

I'm guessing they decided the Mont St. Michel rightfully belongs to Brittany, not to Normandy...

I agree, it would be fantastic if they modeled it, but it doesn't seem likely that's going to happen.

It seems like Mont St-Michel is there now. I don't know when it got added but it has been since the new year when I bought the Normandy map.


No arches at Étretat though. Future update?

Yeah, it was a very welcome surprise to see the Mont Saint Michel, along with a bunch of map and object updates and SpeedTrees. Here's the Changelog from the day before Christmas 2019.
