Heavy planes break the runway in 0.25?

Question

You know that drop on runway when you launch a SPH vehicle? Apparently that's enough to break the runway...

I only have B9 installed. FAR not installed.

My other (lighter) B9 planes/Stearwing don't exhibit that behaviour.

//edit1: I made a 330t SP+ vehicle, it seems to have no problem with the drop. I believe it is due to the number of parts (328), and sheer size of the plane (the 375t has 4 B9 giant wings)

//edit2: My 4300 tons of HX awesome also did that.

the tyrannical kerbal monarch installed AT mines inside the runway in order to reduce the absurdity (and casualties). also explains why concrete now appears to combust

This is really freaking funny, you gotta admit. 'Sir! That plane's too heavy; the runway can't handle it!' 'Oh please, it's a slab of concrete, what's the worst that could happen?' Well, it cracks up, fire erupts, chaos ensues, all that.

Or maybe it's those dirty commies carpet-bombing your new design so you don't get technological superiority.

Think about it! It's not a bug, it's a feature. :P

I told them many, many times those fishy looking "concrete" just "abandoned" on the side of the highway are not to be used, but NOOOO.

No matter, once the mothership is complete, there will be hell to pay.

Wasn't this a Disney movie?

"Negative, 1-3! You'll have to turn back! Our runway isn't long enough for a bird your size!"

"Not long enough? Look, pal! I can land this thing on a dime!"

Missed that (or maybe it was edited after my last post), so it seems the problem would be with B9

I wonder if you 'land' hard enough from air will break the runway as well.

Well; frankly speaking, runway do have their weight-limits...

I think a good way to get around this is to use those stability enhancers.

Yeah, those things.

(Note: The previously shown image is highly unstable and requires more stability enhancers than shown to function as expected.)

this needs to get fixed... seriously

I'd prefer it stays in...so long as the "big feature" that destructible buildings was a lead-up to is construction, and among the construction options are reinforced and supersized runways.

I think a combination of weight, size, and parts.

Tried spreading the load with extra landing gear?

Nope, I centipede the plane with the stock wheels; same thing.

Maybe have upgrades for the runway, say starting max tonnage is 50t, then 100t, then 200t and so on...
