Ooops...

What do you mean? dropping the ordnance without it exploding?

Heheh.. In IL2FB, Landing too hard with ordnance hanging is modeled by your plane sperating into 400 distinct pieces and distributing itself over about .5 km of the landscape (depending on bombload) Your pilot, likewise, spontaneously leaps 40 feet into the air and flies in many different directions at once. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

In seriousness, though. I've never seen ordnance come off a plane except for when it's dropped/fired, and if you belly land or crack your gears without remembering to drop your eggs, you just explode. (at least in my experience) It'll probably be that way in PF, too. Alas.

I thought SOP was to dump everything before you landed anyway. Could be wrong, though.

Later,

Whoa... So... What's happening there? I see the rockets have fallen off, but is that at catapult launch, a bolter, what? Did they just fall off? Was anybody hurt? There must be a story behind that photo. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

The picture is of a trap and a very heavy one hence the tail wheel but losing the HVARS seems to have been a common occurance and pilots were loathe to bring the back aboard

Looks like a trap landing.

Ordnance did not always depart from the aircraft as designed. Sometimes pilots would come back with an HVAR still stuck to the wing because the rocket motor failed to ignite.
