So the '67 war was only over the Golan Heights?

It works both ways.

Difference is, the map I proposed would cover the ENTIRE conflict. The URGA proposed map, the one you are defending so vehemently, would not.

Read https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php...00&postcount=1 for more context/analysis.
OGM that about WWI was meant satirically, which I thought was obvious after Goa said, he was only interested in cold-war and post-cold-war.

The cold-war period is a fairly well documented time-frame starting in '47 and ending with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Cold-war = '47 - '91
Post-cold-war = '92 through present

If one uses known terminology to mean something else than what is commonly understood, than one should not be surprised, when being misunderstood.

*You mean teleporter technology ? Pretty sure they really do have transporter technology. Trucks, trains, cars, all sorts of transporters...
I have to say, that's the first I've read about that. Reading the original article in its entirety, the corridor is a trade route, which Iran wants to lessen the possibility of having all of its Persian Gulf trade routes being blockaded by the US and/or Saudi Arabia. So it refers to present day politics.

I've never tried to asses how close DCS can represent current military conflicts, but I am well aware of often stated limitations to produce even SFM AI aircraft, because necessary information being classified.

So IMHO arguing for a map made for moder-day conflicts doesn't make much sense.

Both conflicts, but not modern operations. That's what ED have in mind I think.

I feel the need to leave a note for the team working on the Syria map.


Please, pretty please, add ARC & RSBN settings for the Mig-21 , even during early access first day.


Thanks a lot from a prospect customer.

I would like more they bring BALKAN theatre (90s war) or GERMANY map (80s east and west Germany).

Maps which include sand and dunes are well... same old, same old.

Where have most wars where western nations have participated, and even Russia as of late, taken place the past 30 years? The sand box with a detour to the Balkans. The Balkans would be nice, but I'll eat up Middle Eastern theatres like candy.

Dont give them ideas... We could have 10 new maps sold for 60 bucks and all would be deserts.

Wags snuck in a preview of incirlik air base in the latest Hornet mini update. Can’t wait to see how close incirlik is to the real thing. Was just there three years ago.
