Europa Game IX, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran. The Near East is a module which provides forces and maps not otherwise provided in Europa games. Just like The Urals it is not playable separately, but can be played in conjunction with Western Desert

The module was initially published in May 1983 in a red-brown Europa Map box. The errata sheet for the game was dated 7 December 1983 and is definitive.
