Overview

The full Normandy Map

Fields of Normandy is a ground forces map available in all modes. It is the Normandy, but the battle area has been moved to the fields south of the main town (the battle area on the Normandy map is usually restricted to just the main town). It was added in Update 1.59 "Flaming Arrows" or in a smaller patch afterwards. The map has lots of hedge rows tanks can hide in and wait to pick off enemies, there are lots of open fields, that although sometimes offering the shortest route to capture zones and other strategic points leave the player exposed. There are two small settlements in the north and south of the map, and a large airship hangar in the middle.

The tank battles area is restricted to 1.8km x 1.8km. The planes battle area is 65km x 65km.
