CMBS map making

I was doing some research for some possible CMBS scenario designs (what better to do while waiting for release?) and found a fairly helpful map viewing website. Base maps can include road networks, satellite views, and topographical information. You can easily measure distances to find the proper region you're looking for.

 

Here is the link if anyone else is interested:

Defensible terrain on the main road between Kiev and Moscow is notable by its absence.  Kiev is on a major river obviously, but there are very few choke points between there and the Russian border.  A very nice multilane highway almost straight to Moscow, as well.  Clearly this is different in mud season, but in high summer where are the obvious points to slow the Russians down?

There are none. Ukraine is a defenders nightmare. This is my conclusion at the moment. Especially as a Finn who has been tought to rely on terrain above anything else in defence. :)
