Then again, at least its the first desert map for those without one, Normandy and Nevada stopped being worth their SSD space a long time ago for me. I just hope its not all flat.

You're right, and that's why I complain, the lack of info!

Depending on the area, it will likely be very mountainous,I think a lot of people will be surprised by the amount of green https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geog...of_Afghanistan

The flat reference was to a potential free map of Libya/Egypt, not Afghanistan.

Just had a crazy idea, next map could be Burma, the Jf-17 will be released in some days, and guess who is a Jf-17 user?



Also Burma saw heavy combat in WW2, and is ana amzing country to fly over, really beautiful as you can find in tons of pilots that flew over there...

Interesting speculation. But I doubt much of the plane set we have flew in/over burma in WW2.

Let's hope we are not forever locked into locations by the current plane set.

P51D, P47D and Spit IX fought there. Mosquito too altough briefly as heat and moist damaged the wooden wings, but our simulated planes don't suffer from that.

P47D as Thunderbolt Mk.II (P-47D-25)



P51D acting as himself.



The Spitfire used were of the VIII mark, so not our IX. I'm not a Spitfire expert so I can't say If they were close enough.




The Mosquito...



IIRC they were used as bridge hunters.

Ok, found some info, our IX has no retractable tail wheel, the VIII had them, the VIII had shorter control surfaces on the wings, that were in fact different, and longer carburator as well.

Maybe one day...

I guess there's our hint eh. But the other hint was WW2 and modern relevant.
