I couldn't resist the urge to do more terrains, I tried man, damn did I try...

Iraq:
- al qaim 40km

Iran:
- keshvar 40km
- kharg 15km
- strait of hormuz 204km

Yemen:
- aden 81km
- al bayda 81km
- moscha 81km
- taizz 81km
- zabid 81km

That is six brand new yemen terrains because there has been a civil war since 2015, also even as US troops are not involved in larger scale, in january 2017 a SEAL Team member was killed in action over there.

Large terrains have the floating point precision problem which gets worse the closer top right corner you get, you can see this even on altis north east tip. For this reason I decided to make some smaller terrains this time which could be used even on infantry operations even though this real world data project has been labeled as "fly boy terrains". The smaller 81km is in my current opinion the largest you want to make, even in 81km coordinates the floating point precision is so inaccurate that you get bad "shaking" with your character and weapons etc.

All these new terrains use arcgis world imagery satellite in 1 meter per pixel scale which is very good resolution, only exception is the massive 204km sized strait of hormuz which uses 2 meters per pixel due the size of the imagery, in fact we cannot do one meter per pixel with this terrain.

Kharg was kind of a joke, so small 15km one but the kharg island is interesting place that I've seen already on Falcon 4 Theater's so kind of wanted to make it for arma3. Strait of Hormuz was suggested by Jakerod already last year so now I got around to create it.

Currently all the terrains are in-game and working, but none of them have any objects yet, some of the yemeni and iran ones had really bad openstreetmap natural / landuse shapes so I have to draw them myself, also I plan on placing some objects manually as well.

No idea about release date, I'm proceeding with relaxed attitude and the release comes when I feel like they are ready.

I finally converted the "PMC Vietnam" real world data terrains into "VTE Terrain Pack 3", this includes Vietnam Da Nang, Dong Hoi, Hanoi, Saigon, Pleiku and Vinh.

These "PMC Vietnam" terrains are still presented in PMC Tactical ArmA 3 Terrains page and downloads are being seeded, however once I get around to it both will cease to exist. So if you ever had a plan to grab these listed terrains in "PMC" tagging ie stand-alone, now its the time.
