This tutorial uses an adaptation of the IW SP script _interactive_objects.gsc This will work on any stock models for which you have a normal state model and a destroyed state model available and an FX for the destruction effect.
Example will use the security camera model ( com_security_camera & com_security_camera_destroyed ).

Radiant

Place the normal state (not destroyed) model where you want it in your level

Cam1.jpg

With the model selected enter the entity property window (n) and enter the following keys/values:

Key: Classname
Value: script_model
Key: Targetname
Value: destroyable_security_camera

Scripting

Create a new file _destructables_obj.gsc in /raw/maps/mp/

Content:

main()
{
	precachemodel( "com_security_camera" );
	precachemodel( "com_security_camera_destroyed" );

	thread arrays();
}

arrays()
{
	security_camera = getentarray("destroyable_security_camera", "targetname" );
	level.breakables_fx[ "security_camera_explode" ] = loadfx( "props/securitycamera_explosion" );

	for(i=0;i < security_camera.size;i++)
		security_camera[i] thread security_camera_logic();
}

security_camera_logic()
{
	self setcandamage( true );
	damagemodel = undefined;

	if(self.model == "com_security_camera")
		damagemodel = "com_security_camera_destroyed";

	self waittill( "damage", damage, other, direction_vec, P, type );

	self setmodel( damagemodel );
	playfxontag( level.breakables_fx[ "security_camera_explode" ], self, "tag_deathfx" );
}
Attention 256.png
Note that in the example above the destroyed model is com_security_camera_destroyed and the FX is props/securitycamera_explosion.

In your Level/Map GSC add the following after maps/mp/_load::main();

maps\mp\_destructables_obj::main();

Finally in your Level/Map Zone File add the following

rawfile,maps/mp/_destructables_obj.gsc
xmodel,com_security_camera_destroyed
fx,props/securityCamera_explosion

In the map the model will be destroyed on bullet/c4/grenade/RL/GL and replaced with destroyed model with a nice FX
