Many of the objects under "Objects" in the FMB are too easy to destroy. Notably the trees. With low level attacks from the sea a common occurance, I tend to add many trees around coastal/airfield targets so that you can see the forest and not crash into it.

One bomb lands anywhere nearby, and all the trees explode. Honestly, it would be better if trees were indestructible than this.

Biggest problem is with the new field fortifications (bunkers, etc.). These things should be hard as hell to knock out, but right now they "explode" (as funny as earthen bunkers exploding is) from short bursts of MG fire. Makes CAS = boring.

At the same time you can drop a 1000 pounder next to a tiger tank and it doesn't do anything. You can park a 100 pounder right next to a plane and it doesn't do anything. Try skip bombing a load of bombs onto a row of planes, if the hit the planes they do no damage, a 500lbs bomb doing 100mph is going to dismantle and aluminium plane if it hits it even before it blows up. Im no programmer but I think it would take a major revision of code and redoing the DM's for ground objects to make things more realisitic but first...I want ground objects that are the right size!http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'd say for the trees it would be better for them to be nearly (or actually) indestructable. The purpose of FMB placed trees in game is as eye candy, and in some cases to try and mark the edge of a "stacked-polygon" forest so low-alt planes have some clue when to pull up. In either case, having them blow up is a bad thing, and not worth it.
