    Bomb shrapnel damage demonstration

    While practicing low level bombing I drop a bomb from too low and what I assume was shrapnel pierced my oil tank. After that I decided to see what happens when I fly low and start dropping bombs from low enough that I get hit by shrapnel but will not get parts blown of by the shock wave. Wasn't 100% successful in that regard, but the damage model and the way each piece of shrapnel seem s to be tracked separately is really impressive. What is not quite as impressive is that your own bombs just pass straight through you. Ow well cannot have everything.

    Lovely!

    Not wanting to spoil the fun, but you can actually set bombfuses to 1 or 11 sec of delay, to avoid being blown up.

    Nice... Was half expecting you to fully deploy the landing gear for your second touchdown.

    It was barely out of the wings

    Well originally the mission was for testing the gun effectiveness on bf110 C-6 against red tanks. The tldr is that the Mk101 can destroy almost all Allied tanks except for Valentine and Matilda. Ammo does not seem to matter AP is as good as HE.
