Go to this link: http://www.777avg.com/maps/

The Kuban is the unmarked, shaded area to the right of Sevastapol. You can also see where the other maps in the sim are.

All the best, Don

'To the right of Sevastopol' is not the best description as it would rather apply to Crimea Map than to the Kuban.

The Kuban is a river that flows along the north of the western Caucasus. Krasnodar is situated on its banks.

That one I'm aware of.
Does my homeland(USA) still have a ban on Cuban cigars?
I can take a 10 minute walk and get 'em at the mall where I live(Hessen,Germany).
I'm always tempted to smoke one while flying 109's,but smoking at the computer is a no go at this house!Like to keep the guts of the machine clean..

LOL that would make sense with the old switch-key keyboards... Today however you very likely will find a rubber mat under the keys, which is very easyly cleaned http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif (don't mix up the keys though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif when you put it back together http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Scroll your Crimea map all the way to the right. You see a little piece of land with an airport, that is the start of the Kuban map.

Or...on your Kuban map, you see a little piece of land to the very left with an airport, that is the end of the Crimea map.

The maps overlap very slightly. Flaker (and I guess LOMAC) simmers know all about Crimea/Kuban maps. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Definitely check out the mountains in the lower right corner of Kuban map. It was a month after I got FB that I even noticed the breathtaking moutnains on Kuban map that you can't see when un~zoomed in the FMB.

Yep! My favorite map to dogfight on. Good framerates too and not much city stuff to worry about.

Look, man. You are trying to keep the guts of your computer clean, but you dont care about you own guts. Friendly advise, quit smoking.

I know some old people who have been smoking all their life. Not so cool to se them slowly suffocating due to reduced lung function and whining about not getting to know their grandkids when they grow up...

Stay cool ace!I recently cut my habit from 25+/day to 1/day.
My common law wife used to smoke at the computer
until I opened it up for a cleaning and saw the mess.
A far as cigars go,I never touched 'em!
My reference to smoking one while in the cockpit of a '109 refered to good old Adolf Galland.

I heard some where that he had a cigar lighter installed in the cockpit of his '109.Any truth to that?
