That's what I hope the DCS DM will avoid.
Do those cam footage tell you what type of ammo was used? Probably not. Maybe they hit the wing with AP only, which shouldn't do a lot of damage to the wing.

And I had several ocasions where I wasn't shred to oblivion with lots of impact at the competitor software.

It should, all internal WWII aircraft have the new damage model now, it's just getting it polished up and making sure it works right. Unless something major happens, I would expect to see the DM release before or about the same time as the A8, but stuff happens right, so we will see.
The A8 gets released on June 5th.

Well, how did I miss that?
Very enticing news.

I was about to ask if 1:37 in the Fw190 trailer is the new DM, I don't seem to recall those effects in game.

No Fw190 A8 got damaged in the making of the trailer. Only others with the old DM, as far as I can tell.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the A8 has been modeled with the new one from the start, so we can see at least see this aircraft with the new DM, right?

I mean, the P-51 in that timing, as we know internal DM is already there under testing.


My guess is that all the warbirds DM will be released at once, since a different DM in MP could be unfair.

IIRC correctly, I believe NineLine said that when one a/c gets the new DM they all will to avoid any... unpleasantness... that could result with mis-matched DM capabilities.

It was also my understanding that the A-8 was to be released with the new DM.

So, in theory... all WW2 a/c to get new DM on A-8 release date.

However, never forget the ED tagline.
