Eagle Dynamics has released the pre-purchase version of the Persian Gulf Map for DCS World 2.5. It is currently priced at $39.99 with a 20% discount. The price will increase to $49.99 at the end of May 2018.
The Persian Gulf Map focuses on the Strait of Hormuz, which is the strategic choke point between the oil-rich Persian Gulf and the rest of the world. Flanked by Iran to the north and western-supported UAE and Oman to the south, this has been one of the world’s most dangerous flash points for decades. It was the location of Operation Praying Mantis in 1988 in which the US Navy sank several Iranian naval vessels.
The region also includes the vast Arabian Sea that is well-suited for combat aircraft carrier missions, and it will be an amazing area of operations for the upcoming Hornet and Tomcat. Be it from land bases in Iran, UAE and Oman, or from the deck of an aircraft carrier, the Persian Gulf Map offers a wide array of combat mission scenarios to prove your mettle.
The package features 90,000 sq nm highly detailed map area that centres on the Strait of Hormuz with highly detailed terrain, textures, seas, and buildings. Other highlights include 13 accurately created airbases in Iran, the UAE and Oman. Airbases come with a variety of landing aids such as TACAN, VASI lights, realistic approach lights and VOR beacons.
Detailed cities such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Bandar Abbas are also featured, with unique buildings as well as the ‘strong hold’ islands of Abu Musa, Siri, and the Tunb.
