Was taking off with some weapons and rotated around 130+ knots when the left tire blew out. I have flown in both the DCS A10C models on and off for years and had never experienced a blown tire before. Could this be a bug?

What airfield?
 

Crosswind?

 

Symmetric or asymmetric loadout (aside from the normal imbalance of TGP on one side, jammer on the other)?

 

What was the takeoff weight?

 

Rotating around 130 sounds a bit early for what I normally do - could have generated a bit too much force on the rear tire(s) and blown one...?  This has happened to me before, I was at Incirlik (which has a sloping runway in parts), was a bit heavy (but not over or at max takeoff weight), and there was moderate crosswind present.

Too heavy and too much force on the stick would be my guess. Happend to me some time ago but I was far too heavy. 6 Mavs 6 GBUs etc...I know...greedy sucker

Thanks folks. I guess that explains it -- was at 90+ % close to full load, and possibly rotated too late and / or too hard. Or could be too soon.
