Korea during Korean war era:

 

We have both iconic aircraft from both the US and Soviet Union in DCS,

The Korean peninsula is pretty small, you could fit most of it on a DCS map. 

Korea was pretty underdeveloped during this time period so not a whole lot of power consuming assets like large cities and airports. 

Hilly and mountainous terrain which makes for fun flying. 

A portion of korea era US units could be ported over from WW2, further saving time and money.

 

You could even do carrier ops since there's water on 3 sides and like the other maps, you can fly beyond the map borders, it's just low poly and low poly water basically looks the same as on-map water.

 

We have a Over the Yalu campaign and it's not even set in a proper korean map. It's in the caucus.

A Cold War Northern/Central Germany Map gets my number 1 spot.

 

  • Pretty much the perfect Cold War map for USSR vs NATO - if the Cold War were to go hot, this would've been the place. Its also suitable for early, mid and late stages of the Cold War.
  • It's one of the few areas where there are both BLUFOR and REDFOR airbases present, and lots of them too. We've already got a decent selection of aircraft with the skins for airbases present; A-10A/C (Spangdahlem), F-16CM (Spangdahlem), MiG-15bis, MiG-21bis (Preschen), MiG-29S (Damgarten), the Mirage 2000C and Viggen aren't too far away either and there's  a tonne of potential, future aircraft. It's also perfect for some hotly requested and in progress aircraft, such as the Typhoon (Luftwaffe), Tornado IDS (for both Luftwaffe and RAF). The F-111 would also go well here, even if it wasn't historically based (think Red Storm Rising).
  • Lots of vehicles (particularly for the USSR and GDR) are already present, including the majority of REDFOR air defences (with the correct variants for the era) we're not missing a whole lot (apart from the SA-4 and SA-5), though EW/surveillance RADARs and other battery components are lacking.
  • If the map is set-up right, there's even enough water to the north to do some naval stuff (though predominantly amphibious, though you could squeeze a carrier there).
  • One of the main settings of Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising, providing a great resource to base missions around.
  • Finally a more modern European theatre, and a modern map whose predominant colour isn't a light brown desert.

you can add the east of Ukraine and part of Russia POSSIBLE to connect with the Caucasus as an option)) the Su-27/25, Mi-8/24, and others would fit perfectly there

I agree. I would like to see the Black see slowly finished: Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine. This will obviously take time a long time, but it's worth it. Given the recent real-life incidents in the Black Sea and the constant tensions in the region, it will make for some realistic scenarios.

Norway

 

Well, Scandinavia... including NW Russia and N Scotland 

 

 

Big map, but a great basis for:

 

- Cold War era. Great for blue and red air, sea, amphibious ops.  Falklands era RN assets would be perfect

 

- WW2.  Brilliant for Mossie coastal strikes (and DCS Beaufighter module) Also great for 109 / 190 air defence and (flyable) Ju-88 arctic convoy strikes

 

- modern / future era. Still a major NATO exercise area..

 

EF2000 used Scandinavia, and the terrain was brilliant for low level strike, with all the deep fjords and mountain ranges

Cold war europe map would be very awesome in my opinion. I don't really know exactly where it would be located but in any case, the upcomming mig 29, mig 23 and mi24 modules would be perfect (without even mentioning the mig 19, mig 21, mi/8). The red side would almost be totally complete.

For the blue side though, I admit it ain't perfect.

Personally I say northern/central Germany - not only was it the Cold War hot spot between USSR/GDR and NATO, but there's such a large number of both BLUFOR and REDFOR airbases, in fairly significant quantity too, housing aircraft we already have liveries for (A-10A/C have a Spangdahlem livery, as does the F-16CM, MiG-15bis has a GDR and USSR livery, as does the MiG-19P, MiG-21bis has a Preschen AB GDR livery, MiG-29S has a USSR Damgarten livery, I'm sure there are numerous others.

 

We have a pretty comprehensive set of REDFOR assets, including air defences already (just missing battery components, the SA-4, SA-5 and SA-7). There are however plenty of assets that could be added on both sides, (particularly for the 60s and 70s) but right now I'd say there's a decent enough set to work with, at least for the mid 1980s.

 

Cold War BLUFOR however is the Achilles heal here, with their being very little actually based on the map, for the period; regardless, such a map could be made appropriate for Cold War up to modern day (Typhoons and Tornadoes are based on the map).

I agree with you, plus it is nice already having those liveries you mentioned. Interesting stuff, thanks teaching me something new.

Right now i don't really have a favorite map but if a Vietnam map were to be added it would defiantly be my top favorite. It would also motivate me to play more online to do a few strike sorties from a carrier every now and again. With the A-7 Corsair II coming it would be a great scenario for it. Plus the Huey was more heavily used in Vietnam than any other conflict that I am aware of. So it would be a hit among Huey pilots.

Dont forget an F-8 Crusader to go with that map, please.
