My impression is that there are some large hill boards with too much terrain (ie. B15, the one with all the Woods, etc.). That said, I think that there is a need for some new Hill boards with heavy cover - weather Woods or Buildings. There are a number of Hill/Village boards sketched which show Ukrainian towns (like at the Kursk southern salient), PTO villages along a ridgeline, Italian villages on Hillsides, and some new Normandy Hills with Bocage. So, at least they're in sketch format - and Tom has colorized a few as well.With all the talk about canals, railroads and diagonal hills I may have missed something, so here goes:
With all the hill boards done so far, few of them have much more than token cover, 39 being the most noticeable exception and I believe 77 will have some.
By cover I mean woods, brush, orchards and grain, possibly some buildings on the peak. BFP had their J & K with cluttered hills, but not enough official boards. Once you step above the base level then you usually are naked to fire.
But, there is a good need for a few other Hill boards with little cover. Think PTO, where heavy woods surrounded the hills, but the hills were pretty naked otherwise (Guadalcanal, Burma).
