The sea floor of the map is uneven and has numerous rock / ice formations which can be used to hide your submarine. There a number of sunken ships and submarines located around the map as scenery. Ice sheets and icebergs cover a large amount of the water's surface preventing submarines from surfacing in some areas and providing a navigational hazard for submarines / torpedoes near the water's surface.
The submarine area is 12km x 12km and the air battles area is 65km x 65km.

This map is inspired by the coast of Spitsbergen, the largest island of Svalbard. The waters around Svalbard are of strategic significance to Russia as its Northern Fleet, based out of Severomorsk must pass through the stretch of ocean between Svalbard and Norway in order to reach the Atlantic Ocean. In a wartime situation it is likely that NATO and Russia would be operating submarines in the area to attack / defend the Northern fleet as it entered and left the Atlantic.
