Eagle Dynamics releases Strait of Hormuz Map Teaser for DCS

If you are waiting for a modern environment for your next missions in DCS, you probably know about the Strait of Hormuz map. How good does it look? This good.

Here's the description for the map from ED themselves:

The DCS: Strait of Hormuz map 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 potentially dangerous flash points for decades. The region also includes the vast Arabian Sea that is well-suited to combat aircraft carrier operations. Be it from land bases in Iran, UAE and Oman, or from the deck of an aircraft carrier, the DCS: Strait of Hormuz map will offer a wide array combat mission scenarios to prove your metal.

It's nice to see ED offering a nice variety of scenery: from Eastern Europe to the US and now the Middle East. Perhaps we can see Africa and Asia in the future as well?
