I have never seen a game were the damage is so localized and so well rendered. Many have criticized the game but there are so many positive points that the negatives ones are easily forgotten. Look at this picture I have taken after a ground attack mission where I did fly a little too low and to near the explosion of some objective. Not only did I lose part of my plane but the plane developed an oil leak and it was not long before my engine did run roughly. Thanks IL2 team.

I think "easily forgotten" may be a bit of an overstatement, but it is certainly true that the damage model is second to none. I only seldomly see the same damage and when I look at screenies from others it is always stuff I havent't seen before...

The damage model is indeed one of the best features of the sim, although I can't say if it's better than DCS:A-10.

I personally love nursing a damaged aircraft back home, desperately checking the gauges and listening to a stuttering engine or two.

If the rest of the sim were on part with the damage model I'd be a very happy simmer.

I do not like the modern air games. The jet planes are too easy to fly or to technical to enjoy if realistically rendered. It is my opinion and I do share it! They have absolutely not the same feeling than the WW2 prop airplanes with their limitations. I did play some a long time ago the last one was Lock on a nice one also. Have fun with the games you like.

I'm just being the DCS ambassador here, but I'd say that modern aircraft certainly have limitations, especially within the context of symmetrical warfare. An A-10 may be easier to fly than a Spitfire, but then again I'm pretty sure you'll never have to try aerial refuelling in the Spitfire, for example. It's true that modern and historical sims differ greatly, but I've found that mastering flying skills or combat manoeuvres in either is equally rewarding.

I agree, nursing an aircraft to a airfield can be as exciting as a good dogfight, perhaps more cerebral.

Here are a few more flying wrecks! The damage modelling is just sooooo good...

















































So it was that the war in the air began. Men rode upon the whirlwind that night and slew and fell like archangels. The sky rained heroes upon the astonished earth. Surely the last fights of mankind were the best. What was the heavy pounding of your Homeric swordsmen, what was the creaking charge of chariots, besides this swift rush, this crash, this giddy triumph, this headlong sweep to death?

H. G. Wells, 'The World Set Free,' 1914.
