There are 2 WWII maps (Normandy and Channel)

for 9  WWII modules existing and developed (Spitfire IX, P-47, P-51, Bf-109K, FW-190A, FW-190D, I-16) + (Mosquito, F4U-1)

 

There are 5 modern maps (Hormuz Strait, Syria, Nevada, Caucasus, Marianas)

for 10  2005-2010 modules (F/A-18C, F-16C, A-10C, Ka-50, JF-17, AV-8B ) + (Kiowa, AH-64, EF, Strike Eagle)

 

There are 0 (zero) Cold War maps

for 28  Cold War from Korea to Desert Storm modules (MiG-15bis, F-86F, MiG-19P, MiG-21bis, F-5E, L-39, C-101, F-14A, Mi-24, Gazelle, Mi-8, Huey) + (Mirage F.1, Fiat G.91, MiG-23MLA, MiG-17, A-6 Intruder, A-7 Corsair, Bolkov 105, Sea Harrier, MiG-29A, Su-17, F-8 Crusader) + low fidelity A-10A, Su-25A, Su-27S, F-15C, MiG-29A

 

 

 

About 2/3 of all DCS modules - released and during development - represent Cold War era and they have at this point 0 (zero) proper maps, this period is massively underrepresented.

Maybe one of proper Cold War map like Korea, Vietnam, Fulda Gap, North Europe divided Germany etc. as the future map for DCS.

The only Cold War map we have at present is the Caucasus map, though as a map it's not far off being wholly unsuitable for Cold War gone hot scenarios that are more in line with RL (the map is almost completely surrounded by WARPAC territory, and the only BLUFOR territory has no airbases).

As for my takes:

  • Germany (preferably northern and central areas - comprising the Northern German Plains and the Fulda Gap) - only problem is such a map would be gigantic while being object dense.
  • NATO Northern Flank (this would also be a massive map, but less dense in objects), though it would have to stretch at least as far as Bodø to Severomorsk.
  • GIUK Gap/Iceland (this could be made a massive map, and is easily the most feasible of the 3, being like the Marianas, but without the object density).

In the latter 2 cases though, I wouldn't be satisfied if we kept the flat Earth model we use now, especially when the latter 2 would have a heavy naval focus.

For the northern map I suggest the Baltic Sea. It's pretty large even if you count without the Gulf of Bothnia, but it's mostly sea, and there's plenty of action to be had there in pretty much any historical or alternate timeline, the siege of Leningrad alone providing enough Warhammer-grade action to account for nearly the entire WW2 timeline (granted, that would necessitate two asset versions, sue me). Not much to go wrong there.

I would love a Baltic map, and I put it in the same league as Germany as maps I really want to see, my only only concern is to get all of the major players in (especially their major airbases), the map would have to be very large, including plenty of land area.

Plus we start running into issues with assets as we start to go more naval, though there's also air defence RADARs not present.

According to my very rough Google Earth measurements, a map covering East and West Germany would be about the same size as the current Syria map.  A 1986 version should be less object dense than modern Germany, in terms of major cities at least, though certainly more dense than the current SoH and Syria maps..

 

I'm sure it must be on ED's long term plan somewhere (it has to be surely...?), perhaps they are just waiting for the hardware to catch up in order to do these types of map justice?

That also begs for a 1940-s version, you know... And a La-7 that may or may not come someday.

And that's the problem, to get the whole area that means a lot of objects, and we can't really skimp on terrain mesh resolution either.

Personally, while it is one of my dream maps (alongside the Baltic), I think it would be better to start out smaller, such as the GIUK Gap (with Iceland, the southern tip of Greenland, the Faroes and maybe the Shetland islands being the only landmasses) - the good thing here is that it offers a decent Cold War gone hot theatre (though with the main emphasis being on carrier battlegroups and amphibious operations) with several key areas (Iceland has NASKEF, which was also used by the 57th FIS and both the Faroes and the Shetland Islands have RADAR stations), but outside of one area (Reykjavík), the whole area is sparsely populated with objects, such a map would be mainly terrain mesh and textures.

Only thing is, I really would like the flat Earth model DCS currently uses to be replaced with a spherical one.

The NATO northern flank, would be more of a balanced approach, but only if it stretches from Bodø to Severomorsk, which will give us a major airbase (mostly for Norwegian F-16A/B aircraft) as well as several major AV-MF bases. It's much more populated, and has more land area.

Both maps are also in dire need for BLUFOR Cold War naval assets, though there's plenty missing for REDFOR too.

GIUK gap would be great, but DCS is not a naval combat simulator, and in order to incorporate the non-carrier based air assets, we would need to expand to include Scotland for Lossie and Kinloss, maybe even down to Leuchars.  Norway too, even right up to mainland Russia.  Otherwise the REDFOR will all be air-started Bears and Backfires.  It would end up as a huuuge map, or just lots of cold water.

As you say a better option would be the Kola Peninsula and the Barents sea to the north.  You could still include Norway, Finland (and maybe the far north of Sweden too to allow the Viggen to be operated from it's native frozen lakes and roads) and the Russian naval and air bases around Murmansk/Severomorsk.  Still plenty of water like GIUK, but with the option of some ground warfare to support, and a smaller, less densely developed geographic area, like the maps we currently have.

SF2 had a GIUK gap map (though only including Iceland), though SF2 had also a much more comprehensive unit set-up. The way it did it was with air-started Bears/Backfires/Badgers/Blinders, with a Soviet amphibious force already taking the north-east (operating from smaller land bases around Iceland), it then had a Soviet CBG to the south-east and a US CBG + amphibious forces approaching from the west, with the goal of repelling the Soviet CBG and retaking Iceland.

As for airbases, you have got NASKEF on Iceland, which was home to the 85th group/Air Forces Iceland, which among others comprised the 57th Fighter-Interception Squadron, flying (among others) the F-4C/E and F-15C/D, and is the largest airbase in the area.

As for Scotland:

  • Kinloss was mostly an MPA base, mainly operating Nimrod MR.1 and MR.2/2P (which were dedicated ASW up until 1986 when the Nimrod MR.2P gained AGM-84D Harpoon IC capability).
  • Lossiemouth is your strike + maritime strike base, with Buccaneer S.1/S.2B, Tornado GR.1/1A/4 and later Typhoon and Poseidon.
  • Leuchars (which I used to live right next to) is an interceptor base, with the F-4K/M, and after the Cold War a Tornado F.3 then a Typhoon base.

Unfortunately your area misses out Bodø by quite some margin, which is the northernmost Norwegian fighter airbase, basing the F-16A/B (later AM/BM and F-35A), and the closest Swedish airbase is the Norrbottenn Wing (F 21) based at Luleå, which is quite a bit further to the south and operated the J 32B Lansen, J 35D Draken, JA 37 Viggen and the Sk 60B, later a JAS 39 airbase.

Fortunately, you have got Severemorsk, which includes 3 AV-MF airbases. Though I imagine the area will be pretty sensitive, owing to the area being the main base for the Northern fleet, with extensive ammunition depots, submarine bases, and a submarine communications facility, among other things.

The only thing you might've missed on the REDFOR side is Olenya air base, which, like Severomorsk-1 is another AV-MF long-range aviation base.

Good info there Northstar.  If only we had the depth and breadth of units to run realistic scenarios to go with the realistic basing.  As always, some poetic licencing will be required for any map or module use.  Also, wartime dispersal will mean many units are far away from their 'normal' homes.

Thanks for compiling the data and then pointing out this shortcomming. 

 

My hope is that at some point soon ED will come up with a plan to help streamline the process for 3rd party devs to make maps. Assuming there are even such 3rd party devs willing to make maps....

Totally agree.

 

It serves for WW2, Cold War and Modern. And, as there is a lot of wilderness, it is not going to be too heavy on the building-objects. Ref: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/218217-arctic-map/?do=findComment&comment=4070482


Also, most map projections make "the North" look really huge. It the map projection is done properly centred on the Lat/Long of the map centre, it is not nearly so onerous. And DCS already has some large maps. Ref: https://forums.eagle.ru/topic/277533-a-size-comparison-of-dcs-maps/

Ideally we'd transition to maps that fit on the surface with a sphere, so we don't have to deal with this at all.

It would also mean we get more realistic LOS, chiefly for visual but maybe also RADAR, we get more accurate navigation, and a Lat/Long grid that is actually accurate to the coordinates.

the cold war is gone and done i don't like to dwell on the past. russia and the us now fight proxy wars and they don't directly engage each other. a germany maps et in the 70s and 80s is mundane as hell

Well so is WW2, but that occupies a very VERY large portion of flight sims, war games, combat sims and such. Indeed there are companies that are supported ENTIRELY by "dwelling on the past" as you might say! ... and yet nowdays there is a small but growing market for WW1 flight simulations and FPS games, which is even further in the past! 

Maybe the 70's and 80's Cold War is mundane to you, but I don't agree: it wasn't that long ago, and while it didn't go "red hot", it was very real, potentially devastating for all parties, and eventually got so scary that it was easier and nicer to just make friends with your "enemies" and lay down some weapons and try to have a better life.

 

That said... I'm not totally convinced what area of the world would be the nicest for a DCS "Cold War map". No large bodies of water, not much mountains. 

 

Cuba:

What about the island of Cuba?!?! Ok, not the entire island as it's 1000km long... but what about the southern tip of Florida and the north western end of Cuba, sort of covering Miami to Havanah ?  Sure, for historical it would only do to have F-8 Crusaders doing photo-recon, and maybe a couple of Mitchells for Bay of Pigs...  but it has potential and could be quite "fun gameplay". 

 

Turkey:

Ok, so Turkey was strategic in part because of Soviet Navy access to the Mediteranean, it enabled U-2 and Blackbird missions to overfly the USSR, I believe they had SAC nuke bombers there too for quick strike on Soviets.   But for DCS it could be cool because it could mesh with the Caucasus map to the north, and the Syria map to the south, once that might become possible!  It also would mean interesting terrain that's not almost all flat, rather there's a lot of mountains and large hills in Turkey. Now... the whole nation is rather large for a DCS map of today... but in time this could become practical. 

 

Austria Czech Hungarian and Poland map:

Not the entirety of all those countries, but a map that stretches from Munich to Budapest, from Prague to Innsbruck. Flatlands, lots of mountains and natural obstacles.  

 

Israel Jordan Egypt map:

I've proposed this before, basically starts at the bottom of the Syria map, and goes down from Haifa to Eliat, and from Alexandria to Amman. During the cold war, this was a very hot zone of conflict in the Middle Eastern wars. But it also saw direct Cold War events, such as the Soviet deployments by air transport to Egypt, and some close calls in the Mediteranean. Sure, it's not "pure cold war Soviets vs 'Muricans" but it is of that era and the Cold War planes certainly were in those battles. It also could be used convincingly for more current scenarios, and could even see some old warbirds action representing the early days of the state of Israel when they put Bf-109's into Israel's fledgling air forces. A sort of "do all eras" map.

 

Of course I would also love to see Vietnam, the Korean peninsula, and the Nordic region overflowing with Eurofighters, but those have been discussed many times in other threads, and all three have significant technical issues to overcome.

Well - I did a proposal trying to keep the landmass as small as possible in the map wishlist subforum:

My final cut after some discussion in the thread to include all parties - including Sweden with the Viggen. Almost all cold war planes in our set has been in the air over this cut - and carriers can have some manouvre space in the North Sea... And it works for late WW2 as well with bombers from the UK. And no major cities accept Hamburg and Copenhagen...

Vdy7n0a.png

Or rather this was the actually the last cut - "erasing" some inland parts of Germany, Poland (only elevation data and rolling hills there) for more Baltic coastline and the Kaliningrad corner... And coastline is much more fun than inland Germany (no offense to inland living Germans and Poles in the forum)
