Trying to bomb an airport: I have BDA of Heavy Damage on both runways, and yet enemy fighters are taking off. I thought there was no way to completely destroy a runway?

You can degrade them but not destroy them. They also repair over time. If there is a runway-grade taxiway, that might be how they are taking off. The other thing you can do is hit the access points. They act as connectors from any aircraft holding unit to the runways.

Thanks!

"I have BDA of Heavy Damage" <--- Is this what is shown in God's Eye view (ie. the ground truth) or is that what the latest recon/BDA report on your side shows? (Which may be erroneous: BDA reports can often skew to either side of the true value; this is deliberate and realistic.)

Also: "Enemy fighters are taking off". What fighters? Maybe they are fighters with good STOL capability that can take off even on a pretty short or damaged runway? (e.g. IIRC MiG-29s can make do with a 400-500m strip). Or as BDukes said maybe they are using a runway-grade taxiway? (quite common)

The devil is in the details. Hence the need for save files.

The BDA was from my side, perhaps the runways weren't as damaged as I thought.

The enemy were Eurofighter Typhoons. I'm doing the air war tutorials. They managed to get two of them in the air, who proceeded to destroy most of my strike planes.

I hit the access points with some cruise missiles, but I bet they weren't damaged.

You can check by loading the savegame in the editor and switching sides or using God's Eye View.
