I hope they aim for a 1979/1988 representation too, and not only a modern NATO intervention there.

Whatever it is I hope it isn't limited by it being an active theatre

Maps are spaced out, I would assume due to manpower, dev cycles, and to build hype around the coming releases. With the Persian Gulf map on our doorstep, there is no reason to expect news, updates or progress on these other maps, other than that they are lined up to be done later. Don't expect news on these maps for many months yet.

But which 350km square regions of either? Because it's a lot of sand and rock with nothing really focal unless you put the key airbases in the centre. Straits of Hormuz is really good for focus on a map. I don't see either of these new offerings catching that key part.

My vote goes for Kandahar and KAF.

Edit: This is "Air and Ground" vs "Ground" territory. (Maybe Syria somewhat less so.)
How many airfields do you need for CAS? Nothing stopping anyone from using those two maps for CAP, but there are (soon to be) four maps for that.

What about that in today's newsletter: "Currently, Urga Media (the developer) is occupied with their Syria map. However, once the Syria map is complete, we will discuss with them further improvements to the Normandy map like use of speedtrees."

Something for us or aimed at the professionals?

I wish they do Jalalabad, so we can represent the Kunnar offensives by the Soviets.
