There are barrage balloon cables physically in the game. You can see them, but only up close. They are very thin.
They do not look like they go all the way to ground, but only down from the balloons to about 800 feet, as i recall.
Not sure why this.
The cables used to tear a wing off when a player's aircraft hit one. Should not blow up an aircraft like it did to you.
Now.. at Dover there are two bad breakwater objects that have hit boxes that extend up 300 feet.
These are the east breakwater and the south breakwater. We do not have anyone at the BDG to fix these yet.
If you fly over and hit the "hit box" of either of these, you blow up.
