yes it would - havent explored Egypt yet but for V2.2 with East Africa being canon you have the French going thru all that effort to get the Canal going again - there is no way they would do all that and not station some kind of troops and planes there to protect what would be a vital link in getting supplies to and from the Middle East

I seem to recall from that module someone did on the internet about Central America (Damn, I thought I downloaded that one -- if anyone has it, let me know), that the Panama Canal is non functional in the T2K2/2.2 timeline due to extensive sabotage and ships stuck in the locks after the sabotage.

I have what you are talking about and the Canal is fully functional in what he wrote with US troops still there and facing off against Colombians and other forces trying to screw up the Canal

Transiting ships just get a NAVTEX warning to button up in the area and some basic decontamination procedures.

I would agree with that - it was a brute force, get the wrecks the heck out of the way and clear a path for our ships kind of clearing - i.e. we have troops we need to support and oil we need to get home and we aint traveling all the way around Africa to do it kind of effort
