In real life, shooting up an enemy plane and causing him to ditch anywhere other than his own field resulted in a kill being credited to the pilot who shot him. Even planes that ditched on thier own fields were scrapped about 85% of the time. Put a couple of bullets into letez and he will always run away and land on water.....100 feet from carrier, many times. wasteoftime I see reds ditching at gold fields or vice versa and it is all done to deny kill to the person who earned it with zero attempt to actually live and rtb. Taxi out to the end of the runway make a turn, and put one wheel just an inch off the end of the runway and then click to leave plane. It will be called a ditch. Since the sim is glad to call a proper landing (gear down) with one wheel off the end of a runway a "ditch", why not experiment with making every "ditch" a kill......maybe in the TA arena. Maybe people would actually try to rtb and land a mission which would go a long way toward steering this sim away from the arcade game it has become.
