Definitely, I experienced it with a Pe-8 mission recently. AA hit me and I saw one of my main landing gears dropped. I lowered the other gear then raised it again, but the damaged gear stayed down. Later, on approach, when I tried lowering the other gear again, it wouldn't drop; I'm guessing the hydraulic fluid leaked out? I had to make a landing on just one wheel, the slide mark on and off the runway behind my plane looked cool.

Does the Pe-8 have a hydraulic pressure gauge?

The J2M3 was fairly good at aerodynamics (if I remember right) so it may not give you a good example. Mustang compared to a A6M5 Zero might be a different story.
Makes sense, thanks.
