Had I known a thread like this existed I would have better documented this sortie. Good ol' A-10C held together long enough to get me back to base. Damaged gear drug me into the grass where I could finally pop out to an exterior view to see the damage. Had no idea of the full extent of damage until this point. Better lucky than good they say!

Mad_Max2 - go here C:\Users\USERNAME\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Tracks and attach the track of that mission you played to get the screenshot.

That sort of damage is exactly what ED wants to investigate.

al531246- Unfortunately I didn't save the track file to this mission. The screenshot I took was "live" in mission and not from replaying the track. I double checked my track files just to be sure. Will make sure to save any similar incidents in the future.

Watched F-15 documentary. Israeli pilot landed F-15 on one wing. Said after that had he seen the damage (masked by spraying fuel) he would have absolutely bailed. There may be a bug... but there might also be some truth to your real world pilots bailing too fast comment. Just human nature to assume a plane damaged that bad is unable to fly...

This is a video of me flying a wingless F-15. Me and my buddy were fighting one another and messing around online when he hit me with a missile and thought he killed me, but I lived. This is when I just started playing DCS so I did not even have trackir. So it was a high point at the time to land this thing.

I have done some research but i did not find anything that was proving that it was fake, do you mind providing your sources on this ?

If you wanna talk about aircraft missing large parts of a wing and continuing to fly you just have to look at the skyraider at Duxford a few years ago that had a mid-air with a Mustang and landed afterward.
