Well, I'm always thinking in the worst case scenario, and in the worst case scenario, Bulgarians try to land in the Crimea, and the Germans are heading for Sevastopol, whime we have to hold off the Turks... that's where a slightly improved Georgian Aiir Base will be a godsend, also it's closer, so if I want to use CAS against Turkey, I can't use Sevastopol as it's too far from the front...
Sounds reasonable. And you're right; I didn't measure the distance from Sevastopol to Northern Turkey, but eyeballing it now I'd say about 200 km in game, which is roughly the range of our CAS, meaning they indeed can't reach the current border. And hey, if Iran's beleaguered oil drillers need liberation from the clutches of capitalism, that base in Tbilisi could prove useful!
