Orbx Surfaces New Previews of Kola Peninsula Map for DCS

Highly regarded scenery and aircraft developer Orbx is edging closer to its debut on the DCS platform, as evident from the recently released pictures showcasing its anticipated Kola Peninsula Map.

Orbx’s first map for the DCS platform is set to cover the Kola Peninsula, located in the extreme northwest of today’s Russian Federation. The peninsula is considered one of the largest in Europe, entirely contained within the Arctic Circle and bordered to the north by the Barents and White Seas. The most populous city on the peninsula is Murmansk, a Russian city that serves as the headquarters of Russia’s Northern Fleet and is home to 270,000 people.

As previously announced in a DCS newsletter post, Orbx’s recreation of the map will also expand further west, covering parts of northern Sweden, Finland, and Norway, as well as the Berant and Norwegian Seas. In total, the map will span 550,000 square kilometers and feature detailed replicas of numerous airbases and other points of interest.

Published to Reddit by user ‘aviatornexu’, the newly surfaced screenshots showcasing Orbx’s recreation of this enormous landmass portray the level of detail that the developer has delved into to provide users with an accurate, vibrant, and living recreation of this fascinating environment. Particularly, the Fjords, as shown in the first screenshot, demonstrate the picturesque landscape that future users can immerse themselves in.

Though neither a formal release date nor an official price has been announced, some users in the forum agree that the pictures were taken by Matt ‘Wags’ Wagner, a senior producer at Eagle Dynamics, leaving one to wonder whether further showcases are to follow in the not-too-distant future.

In any case, we will endeavor to keep you posted regarding any further developments on the matter. In the meantime, feel free to check out the original Reddit thread linked here.
