Hi Guys,

I thought you may find the following maps useful. Please excuse the poor quality, they are photo's from a paper-back. The maps show the RAF and Luftwaffe organisation of bases as of August 1940 in England and France as well as British Airfield and Radar station deployment of August-September 1940, hope you enjoy them.

It's going to be so cool flying over Britain. Russia is so bland.

I was bidding on a set of wartime RAF maps on Ebay a few days ago. They covered all of Britain. They went up to fifty quid and I let them go. I'm kicking myself now :-)

I was in Scotland a year ago. There was a nice a/c-exhibition and I got some nice books with reconnaisance-photos from German and British planes. Really interesting stuff. The most thrilling part: The German book holds a sheet for every photography, with declaration of buildings for each building with a number, positions of flak, secondary targets, etc. Really nice /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Apart from that, IMHO the only hills and mountains in BoB will be those in multi-player-maps. There isn't anything worth the name "hill" in the coastal part of England and the Normandy. They'll have plenty of polygons for the planes, LO!

Yeah, but it's green with a lot of farms isn't it?

Britain in FS2004 looks pretty nice.

What's the book? It sounds really interesting.

Hills? There are the North & South Downs in Kent, Surrey and Sussex and Hampshire, which are over 700 feet (@210m) and very hard if you fly into them! The cliffs at Beachy Head are about 530 ft (160m), pretty impressive and a favourite suicide spot!
And you won't find any stone walls in the south-east, but one huge patchwork of hedges, a lot of which have been torn out in the last 50 years. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
Cheers!

Ladies & gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Thankyou for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. Those passengers sitting on the left-hand side of the aeroplane please make yourselves comfortable. Those sitting on the right... please look to your left!

If your from the UK rush out and buy a copy of the FlyPast Special "Battle of Britain" before it sell out.

It contains Maps, details of all the fighter Groups from 9-13 including all of the Squadrons, Comparison Spitfire V Hurricane, pieces on Defiants, Gladiators and much more. Well worth the 3.99

I could really use copies of those maps, but am away from my usual PC so can't grab them.

Would anyone e:mail them to me please?

PM me and I'll give you my e:mail address.

S! Simon.
