You can make a Warsaw Pact vs. NATO in the South Atlantic scenario.

My thoughts as well. Ideally it would be optional somehow (maybe two versions of the map to pick in the Mission Editor?) but without Mt. Pleasant it'd be very hard to land high-performance aircraft anywhere outside of mainland Argentina.

Very hard to land high performance aircraft on a carrier? Probably not with practice.

The buildings could be removed using the remove objects zones. Particularly for those wishing to strictly adhere to a 1982 scenario. You would have the best of both worlds available then. Just a thought.
Perhaps Mithandra can comment on this?

How hard would it be to have at the airbase structures, taxiways, parking ramps and runways packaged as a scriptable preset(for lack of a better word)?



It could be added and removed by mission maker by use of a simple trigger.

I also agree that the airbase should be added, if only to provide more options for the scenery designer in a sandbox environment. Said airbase could be functionally disabled for 1982 scenarios, not to mention we're already taking liberties with the conflict in terms of available airframes. One more airbase won't be a backbreaker, but will give us potentially more flexibility in scenarios.

Knowing the DCS Community, once everybody has played their fantasies of the '82 conflict some voices start to raise that the map is 'boring', 'empty' and just 'a big pile of water'. I'd vote to put it in

I agree, add the airbase.
I’d like to think most people can happily ignore it for historical contexts.
I can’t ignore the value of creating future missions that are based on interesting hypothetical situations, that will increase the interest and replay ability of this map.
I don’t really want to be limited to one era in any map theatre.

yes must be available (option/modern mod/etc)

Plus I was used after the war in the 80s/early 90s , argentine air force send planes straight tothe island to make the British on alert and send planes but before get close to BR air space the argentine planes turn back.
That wasdone several times.


some post war intercept missions do happened.

To be fair I didn't wade through all pages of this thread, but yes, add it please!! I know everyone keeps mentioning that this airbase wasn't around during the Falklands conflict, but neither were the variants of the Mirage or Harrier we have as modules, so.....?
