Before the patch, I would usually get damage and system failure the first two or three times I was hit. Then a final hit might finish me off, or I might elude the enemy and make it home smoking.

I played tonight with the patch, and not once in about 10 deaths did I see any partial damage. At the first hit my plane just fell to pieces everytime.

What's up?? I preferred it pre-patch. This falling apart of planes at the slightest hit cannot be realistic, surely?

I just got partial damage from flak in a 109-F4, got holes in my right wing. Some AI wingies got hit and crashed later due to damaged/smoking engines, just like always. I see no difference.
But flak seems to be more accurate again? Or maybe it's just my imagination??? Half the "differences" you see after a patch are your imagination kicking in. Happens after every patch.

i'm thinking maybe they tweaked the stress modeling of all planes. when in a turn, mg fire hits it so hard wings go bye bye. in the 51's, at very high speed, the wings can and will snap off in either a dive recovery or in a snap turn. did u get hit in a turn with cannon fire on a deflection, or did u get raked with close-in mg fire?
