Over-G Damage

If a jet fighter exceeds its maximum allowable G, what kinds of damage is possible?

Are the following types of damage possible? Not that all of these things would happens at once, of course:

1. Engine mounts break -- what would happen if the engine mounts did break?

2. Internal fuel tanks get ruptured -- is it possible to rupture both internal wing tanks and internal fuselage tanks?

3. Flaps get damaged

4. Ailerons get damaged

5. Elevators get damaged

6. Wings bend or crack or pop rivets

7. Fuselage bends or twists

Thanks,

Delta
