After playing many game types of Noshahr Canals I find that it just might be the best map with out jets.
what I am saying that since BF3 came out it's been and still is a very popular map for different game modes
you can find 24/7 Teamdeath matches going on all the time, it's a very good Rush map and until B2k and Armored Kill maps it was the only map mode with the Mobile AA
conquest mode you get a good mix of vehicles and I think it was the only Conquest map (until B2K maps) to have the Amtrac on it were as other orginal BF3 maps have it only on Rush mode. yes one side gets two little bird coppers but it's easy to be spawn camped on each side if you don't have a good balanced team, and I find the losing team is usually the one with the camping snipers, on the ship on the rocks or on the top of the crane or dock hanger unless those recons are getting in capping flags and placing spawn beacons and such but still winning that map on conquest comes down to a good tank crew that keeps at least 2 of the 3 flags.
it seems few players know that the Russians Vodnik will float on the water.
I always include this map an at least one of the map types on a rotation when I manage a rented server.
