Airfield Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

A great all round map offering something for everyone with multiple elevated sniper positions and cover from artillery while at the same time providing several spots for players to slug it out. A lot of action takes place in or near the central parts of the map. There is also several war planes parked near the hangers should you feel the urge to crush a plane. This map is offered in "War" variant.

El Hallouf Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

A great map for artillery and snipers who can perch high on the hills. Venturing into the middle valley is risky as most players especially the heavy and medium tanks prefer to push on the left side and fight it out in the top left corner, which in many games is the decisive turning point and the difference between a win or loss. Also available in "War" variant.

Kasserine Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Kasserine is a map mixed with hills, towns, and a very distinctive ravine running through the center of the map. This is a key hot spot of the map offering both slug fests within the ravine itself and the opportunity for flankers to get behind those already in the ravine. There are numerous rocks scattered around the map offering players some protection from artillery while at the same time being able to be used for sniper positions. Players need to be careful not to bunch up within the ravine but instead use the opportunities around it to take the enemy by surprise. An all round great map for all tank classes.

Sand River Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

A mix of sand dunes and small villages this map offers very little cover and is a good map for artillery to reign down fire from above. The notable feature of this map is the large river bed which itself can be used at parts to pop up and shoot tanks crossing over the tops of dunes. Snipers will take up positions along the many small cliffs which provide some cover and great viewing. Expect a lot of action near the southern village, south western dunes, and north middle dunes. An all round excellent map for all tank types.

Skorpion Pass Map

Type: Desert Map

Size: 1000m x 1000m

Skorpion Pass is exclusive to the consoles and offers a range of tactics and gameplay for different classes and roles. The most eastern side of the map on the hill is a very popular spot for snipers who have an amazing mostly unobstructed 180 degree view of the valley below. They will most likely spot you first until they fire their first shot and give away their position. Another spot that sees some heavy action is the hills at the north western part of the map where heavy tanks and tank destroyers slug it out. This is a good map for mediums to use the central valleys to try flank enemies, and an all round good map for artillery especially at choke points
