As you probably know, the fictional country of Chernarus where the action of ArmA II takes place is based on a real part of the Czech Republic. I've been doing some location scouting in Google Maps, and I found the place they used. I thought I'd share it with you...

Search the town 'Povrly' in Googe Maps. Its ArmA II equivalent is the town of 'Elektrozavodsk' in the South East corner of the map.

Just compair the area North-West of Povrly to this official BIS map of Chernarus :

The representation is incredibly accurate. I'd hate to run into a Czech guy living in the area in a Warfare game, he would have an enourmous advantage

Cheers

Nico

Is the map representation the complete extent of Chernarus? According to the Arma website "Sahrani is a fictional island laying in an area of approximately 400 square kilometers." The Arma2 site says there is "225 km2 of real world data" with regard to Chernarus. So we are being shorted a little under 200km2 of battlefield?!

Nope, over half of Sahrani was water. About 150 km2 of landmass, and even LESS usable land due to high terrain.

Chernarus is about 200 km2 of actual landmass, and 25 km2 (est.) of water. You have an even bigger playable area.

The shots of the Castle look cool!

I can imagine some great defense-type gametypes from that!

The art is great!

I agree, there was a large percentage of water in Sahrani. I thought it helped out quite a bit with game play (especially when aircraft were were removed from the picture). I had just hoped for a more diversified battle space. Now naval units won't be able to have much of a stake in the game.
