This is a new look at Deir Ezzor which I have done three times now but this time I thought I would redo the map, but upon reflection im not sure its much different from the previous one.
The two main defferences here are first that it appears that ISIS actually surround Deir Ezzor and have it under siege. Secondly that they are using chemical weapons in their assaults on the airport.
Also, the articles reffer to the presence of the 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division which wasnt detailed before.
I dont have chemical weapons functionality at the moment and dont think i'll be putting that in soon as im still wading through putting in leader functionality, but I might give ISIS some powerful artillery to replicate that fact.
The fact that Deir Ezzor is a seige situation changes things slightly although I do not like the placement of the ISIS units which look a little contrived.
I have also included Colonel Ibrahim Salloum who died in the fighting at the airport on 5 April 2016 along with 13 soldiers.
