Would definitely look forward to RC East (Nangahar, Kunar, Nuristan) for the high mountains and the forests and also Kandahar and Helmand Province. Served in both areas and the terrain is vastly different. Anywhere along the Paki border is good. Iran border, hmmm interesting future combat options too.

Definetely the eastern and southeastern part. That's where the heaviest fighting took (and still takes) place - in russian times and since 2001. Landscape has great variety: mountains, snow, large forests, desert, deep canyons in Paktika and also some medium sized cities as Jalalabad and Khowst. Great would be also the inclusion of the Tribal Areas of Pakistan, where some of the real bad guys are. The theatre would offer great opportunities for the upcoming MI-24, the MI-8, the whole bunch of fighters from MiG 21 to A-10 and F-16. Also for some really awesome Special Ops which were conducted especially in this region throughout the whole time. So pleeeeeease give us a kind of SpecOps Helo as MH-60 or another capable western medium sized helo (UH-60, Sea King, Puma...)

I'm not buying any map sadly, there is nothing to do in them except engaging random people in MP or killing hand placed targets on the ground.

What do you do in DCS, if I may ask?

I understand him. The majority of campaigns and single missions, both professionally and community made, are for Caucasus. Very little is made for other maps. And the vast majority of players are mainly SP, not MP, me included (have been confirmed by ED).
I quite often regret buying other maps for this reason, not so fun playing self made missions (on basically completely flat terrain, too) where you know everything that is going to happen and where all enemies are (and not much of a point coming up with a good storyline for the same reason).

There are a few Dynamic missions out there we fly them as a squad but you can fly them SP also, albeit no Wingmen...

But yes I believe the community should step up and start delivering SP missions or campaigns...

Never the less i strongly suggest joining a squad, often they make their own content and generate activities either on line or off.
