I just got through flying the HMS Furious carrier launched Pup scenarios with the attacking Zeps. Um, Confused why is England so damn small and mountainous?

The Ilse of Sheppy in the game is a bit less than 3 miles in length, which it actually should be more like 10 miles in it's roughly West NorthWest- East Southeast aligned length. The south coast can be seen from about 5000' above the mouth of the Thames, is that right?

Does this mean the Western front terrain is also scaled the same?

The stock maps are not full scale. One of the drawbacks of the original terrain engine... Bigger maps can be done, they just are a lot of work. Somme is full scale, but not historically accurate. It's more representative than actual. SDOE goes for more of the feel, rather than the historially accurate.
