Yes... I hope that one day we can include it in SB Pro. Of course, high-res LIDAR scans work best with something like sand dunes to recreate the small details. And it can have a substantial impact on simulating outcomes; where a 10m DTED3 map predicts engagement average ranges of 2,200m, the LIDAR terrain database suddenly drops the average(!) engagement range to under 500m inside the dune field.

I'd pay triple or more to get a version with this map format. Does the classroom version of SB have this mapping capability? Should I buy that version?

You have a version with this map format. It's any SB Pro PE version since 4.1

What you don't have is an actual map that contains high-res LIDAR data. That will change eventually as European topographical offices are gradually opening their archives to the general public, but of course there's more to a map than just importing a handful of files.

I have nothing but time. Where could I get LIDAR data files? There must be one LIDAR map out there to practice on.

 

Well if you are only interested in the US you could try here:

 

https://gisgeography.com/top-6-free-lidar-data-sources/

 

Of course once you have imported the map all that gives is the geographical shape (hills, etc.) Then you need to populate it with water courses, roads, buildings, bridges, barns, vegetation, fences, power lines, traffic lights, ....

 

This is one of the reasons for Ssnake's comment:

Its is not simply a case of pressing a button and X hours later you have a map 100% ready to build a scenario with.

Well, LIDAR import is limited (as of yet, like importing any other geodata) to the classroom version. But if you can point us to the download location of the (*.ASC) data, we can give it a try and then send you the result.
