What makes Suez a challenging map to play?
While there are oases and settlements to take cover in, the open dunes create a lot of challenges for an advancing force. Limited cover and threats in every direction can make transportation difficult even in vehicles. And with little cover to begin with, destroying important structures can make defenses feel even more vulnerable than they started.
