Default Stewy's Map Pack 15

Here's my fifteenth instalment of maps I've made for Dangerous Waters. The maps are of:

* Yokusuka Japan (including naval ranges)
* Canadian Forces Base Halifax
* Heard and Kerguelen Islands

Further Reading on Heard Island:
LAND OF BARREN BEAUTY

They are essentially 'blank' of triggers, scripts, ships and submarines, for you to make your own missions.

All landmarks, features, and EEZ boundaries are marked as accurately as possible.

Research Credits go to Wikipedia, World Sea Ports (https://www.searates.com/maritime/), NGA Maritime Safety Navigational Warnings and marineegions.org (for EEZs)and various notices to mariners and news websites. The resticted airspace coordinates are from the FlightSim program, LittleNavMap.


All information was accessed from publically available sources.
****A HUGE thank you must go to FPSChazly for making his great 'line-marking' program.****

You might be thinking that the Heard and Kerguelen Islands map is 'just another remote island', but I did some research into it and it's pretty interesting.

On the entire map, there is only one port (in the French Kerguelen Islands) and no airport.

The weather is very rough for 75% of the year and the warmest temperature in summer is 5.2°C (41.36°F) - yet there is a lucrative fishery for the Patagonian Toothfish, which attracts illegal fishing vessels.

The Australian Navy has run a number of missions trying to interdict these vessels - I've included my notes on a podcast https://player.fm/series/australian-...southern-ocean in the download file.

Here's a video showing the fishing conditions:
