Wow, there are definitely intersting photos in that link. To a certaian extent, some of them could be used by campaign makers!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Some of the photos are amazing, if you look long enough, so many little details pop up

and the look of the smoke + smoke shadows gives a new meaning to scorched earth...

This isn't one of those stupid things where you lean into the screen to look real close - then a scary face pops up and you spill your tea on your keyboard and piss yourself is it?

Just kidding - nice link.

The airfield is at Käkisalmi. The large Gulf of Finland map, about 20 km from the grid BI21 (not in the map).
