This reminds me of a similar kind of aircraft, a B-26 called "Flak Bait"  It had over 100 missions.  The only [art the remains of it, is the fuselage.  It's in the new Steven Udavar Wing of the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.

My uncle was on this aircraft. The painting depicts what occurred on June 28, 1944.  It did return to base on two engines. It had 500 machine gun holes, 62 20mm cannon holes, the oxygen, communications were severely damaged. All aboard but my uncle were injured but all survived.

Nice picture, but I guess the Liberator will not make it home this time...

even with just 2 engines, you can still at least land it, maybe not a gentle landing but still a landing

With two other FWs on its tail? I also doubt it can fly too far with both port engines down...
On the other side, that's somewhat out of topic :D

the FWs might run out of ammo, but I said you could land it with two engines, I didn't say you could land it with 2 engines and 2 FWs on you
