Ignoring the bullet holes for a moment, the bitmaps are done in such a way that they don't pixellate and jump about as you get closer.
Starting at altitude and zooming in on the landscape.
Still pictures cannot convey the sense of speed you get doing 300 knots at 100 feet... breathtaking. This is one of those few sims where 1500 ft altitude looks like.... like 1500 feet! Once again I stress it's the extraordinary clarity and smoothness in scaling which enables this effect.
