Burma, Kurland, Murmansk and the forthcoming Slovakia.

Burma was done with real satellite height data and even every pagoda placed was there on a 1950 map!

From what IO understand the Crimea map is pretty accurate too.

Coral Sea map. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif


Best map area for immersion is the southeast corner of the Kuban map, with the steep mountains in the lower right map, and with No Ten Mile Wide River Plains in that area.

Ironically is is not, because in real life there should be some tiny islands and coral reefs showing up (which the IJN especailly had a habit of using as temporary seaplane bases) which do not show up in the in game map.

Is that it, Ian? I always thought most of the early maps were geographically correct: Moscow, Kuban, Crimea, Smolensk, Lvov, Prokhorovka, Stalingrad, Balaton, Berlin, Normandy, Gulf of Finland, etc. I've only taken a cursory look at them and compared to an atlas, and they seem to be very close if not spot on.
