Default Syrian and Afghan theatre of operations confirmed!

As the title says, here is a direct quote from Wags 2.5 update:

Quote:
Current regions to battle include the Caucasus, Nevada Test and Training Range, and Normandy 1944. New maps in development include the Persian Gulf, Syria, Afghanistan, and others.

Yes, dream can... But when the TBS is for military / government customers, they have own NDA allowance for classified data. What it means to us, mere mortal customers, we can only dream x-) So what comes to TBS, is not what comes to DCS.

Not entirely true... there were projects that were developed for the TBS and they ended up going to DCS as well afterward. Syria and Afghanistan are two examples. They were on TBS website for a LOOONG time.

Afghanistan alone is going to be so worth it... Russo-Afghan war in the '80s, and the US in the '00s.

We can use a lot of DCS inventory in those alone. And, the Mi-24 will be right at home there.

Last time I checked I believe there were a "couple" of other countries in Afghanistan alongside the US... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partic...during_Freedom

I could of sworn there were other allies involved in Afghanistan? If I recall we lost a few hundred soldiers!
