Even though I have owned this game for more years than I can remember, I just noticed that the manual says the map represents 17 x 22 km, but the map itself is only 15 x 22 hexes?? Must be some "hex to km" math I'm not understanding!

The hexes are wider vertex-to-vertex than they are side-to-side. I think that the 17 x 22 is based on the measurements of the map, not the counting of the hexes.

Yes, hexes are 2/sqrt(3) wider than they are tall, so that ratio comes out to 1.15, multiplied by 15 is ~17.35
