    You're right. From the wiki:

    "The design of the map is inspired by the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico, although the map's setting is meant to suggest the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST), which was under construction in Guizhou Province, China during the development of Battlefield 4. Now completed, the real-life FAST is much deeper and features six towers, unlike the BF4's incarnation which only has 3."
