Hi,

I've been playing Finnish 1941 campaign for awhile and noticed in one Blenheim escort mission that the target for bombers was "railway stations" in Suursaari island. I don't believe there was or is any railways in that island. It seems that campaign generator doesn't know if some "city" is in an island.

Also the island itself seems too soft edged geographically. I remember seeing a photo of Suursaari where there is steep rocks elevating straight from the sea. Generally the gulf of Finland map doesn't have much elevations at all, which makes low level flying too easy. No danger of crashing into a hill or cliff if flying in bad weather or against the sun.

And it would be nice if there was more information in the mission roster how well the escort mission went and if the bombing raid was a success or not.

cheers, Antti
