Both are quite troubled, with Civil War in Syria and War on Terror in Afghanistan, I wonder though, will DCS actually present these in war time, with years of destruction behind these regions. Military installations, battle wrecks, combat outposts etc, or will it be rather same as with current maps - peaceful and undisturbed..

I think "peaceful" and "undisturbed." We should have the permanent military installations, but battle wrecks, combat outposts, etc., are ultimately temporary, plus it's less work to build an unmolested map. Besides, it's our job as players to bring the destruction.


I'm really looking forward to a Syria map so I can simulate playing missions as an F/A-18C pilot during Inherent Resolve.

In the mission editor, there is a trigger where you can make a city or village show damage etc. Same goes for static objects and such, you can set them as destroyed. You also can create fires and the smoke billowing up into the air from them.

Yes, this isn't what I was referring to really.
Well, I am looking forward to it, and yet I feel this is going to be aesthetically similar to current Persian Gulf map, unless countries involved are pulated with all applicable units on the ground and in the air.

I agree, especially since I was deployed there three years ago launching A-10s against ISIS into Syria.

Inded, and not just the US used Incirlik for that purpose, but also other NATO countries like Germany (you might have seen german Tornados operating from there when you were there?). So Incirlik is a pretty important base for NATO and should be included in a syrian map.

Germany, Spain, Oman, Saudi Arabia, to name a few, were there the same time as me.
