bravo 6 released some new pics showing off the villages from a birds eye view on the BIS Forums
Quote bravo 6: Just a quick idea how the several small villages will look like from the air. The Villages look pour, but with time they will gain more things. All pictures were taken in VD 10000m. Sorry for the quality, still have a crappy video card & PC

Info: Safwan is located along the infamous Highway of Death from the Persian Gulf War of 1991. The cease-fire negotiations between Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf and the Iraqi delegation led by Lt Gen Sultan Hashim Ahmad took place in Safwan. Schwarzkopf's demand to hold the formal cease-fire negotiations in Iraqi territory led to the encounter between the Col. Anthony Moreno's 2nd Brigade of the US 1st Infantry Division (Mechanized) and the Iraqi Republican Guard, known in military circles as The Ultimatum.
"highway of death" The Highway of Death refers to a road between Kuwait and Basra on which retreating units of the Iraqi army were attacked and destroyed by American aircraft and ground forces during the United Nations Coalition offensive in the Gulf War, on the night of February 26-February 27, 1991, resulting in the destruction of hundreds of vehicles and the deaths of an unknown and disputed number of Iraqi soldiers and civilians. The scenes of carnage on the road are some of the most recognisable images of the war. According to Elaine Sciolino of the New York TImes, the images suggested a turkey shoot and contributed to the war's resolution soon afterwards

This is all shot in Safwan
I had a friend who was in the Royal Artillery Corps and his convoy passed through the highway of death, one of his mates picked up a rock and threw it at the charred body of an Iraqi tank crew, he just disintegrated, he showed me his pictures too, they are real grim. Like the idea of the highway of death though!!! Nice map!!!

PS- UK-Playr, if your friend have and can share some pictures of the environment around the highway would be appreciated. Note that sensible images are not tolerated by forum rules. But if you (your friend) can share, please do. Or mp me. Thank you.
