Why not? If the bullets hit some of the wooden parts that make up the wing, it could heavily deform the wing without necessarily breaking it.

Not sure if one of them could survive it, though.

No flight record to observe. Have to manually start recording in game it seems. :)

Or could it be due to bullets impacting at a very shallow angle? :hmmm:

I'm not so familiar with the planes from this period.

Bullets eakening that part of the wood making it more prone to damage from high speed flights maybe? Remember, diving too deep with one of these babies and you can wave that wing goodbye!

Yes, the only thing that still has to be done is the JGSME (mod enabler) having the same mods enabled within HSFX but I figure Oberon can get you sorted with that....errrr maybe not with that Lipton Ice tea IL2 of yours... :haha:

He'll probably drop a bomb on it in our next flight :haha: Waiting for his reaction :DL
Yeah, just got to wait for him to come on. Then I should be all set.

I think that structural damage of that magnitude would lead to the wings breaking off in normal flight. As you can see the damage is spread over the entire upper and lower wing.There shouldn't be much stability left in them.
But well, it's just a game and the damage model seems to be pretty good nonetheless.

Raptor1 07-01-10 10:04 AM

That's what I said. Bullets could probably do that sort of damage, whether the plane could survive it is another matter.

Yeah, that could be it. :up:
Haven't ripped off any wings yet though by overstressing them. I have done some bad landings though.


Used to play Wings on the Amiga many years ago. :yeah:
I don't think I've played any WW1 combat flight sims since then, before now. :o

No RB3D? That game was (is) awesome...

EDIT: Curse the internets! Arrgh...

Lionclaw 07-01-10 11:11 AM

I've heard of the name, never played it though.

Lol, flying in pitch black is hard. Tried it when I was messing around in multiplayer by myself. Crashed :doh:
