          I may expand this this to other items down the line,
          But they will all be cosmetic as well.

          I will also improve the shape detail and textures as soon as I can get my hands on some High enough resolution images for panel lines, ports, stencils etc.

          Also looking into a way to turn the tip lights on and off with the nav lights somehow. (that or I enable them and leave them on, just dim so they arent noticeable in day/flight).

                        Any chance, to make them consumable?
                        Would be a great addition.

                          The only way to make them consumable is if BST Allowed Fuel to be used from those stations in their flight model/fuel systems.

                            on that note, The Mod will CHange to a Different name as more items are included.

                            For Example, Ravenclaw007's F-5A Tanks are being Converted to PBR/DCS as Well:

                              Any update Skate? I'm really looking forward to this mod.

                              Wondering If it will come in Skoshi Tigers cammo paint as well.

                                The Tanks are done, havent gotten around to working on the refueling probe and other items yet.

                                I am currently preparing for a 2 week travel schedule for employer.

                                    One of the main visual differences between the F-5A Freedom fighter and our F-5E Tiger II is the location of the central (ventral) hardpoint, in the F-5A is more to the nose of the plane while in the F-5E is more centrally located. You can see in the next diagram and pictures.

                                      When I try to reinstall the mod in latest update (Beta version), I cannot select anything for the wingtips, is simply as If is not a working pylon anymore. As I kept a saved loadouts from earlier updates those work on, but I cannot create new loadouts modifying the wingtip weapons/pylons. Any idea Skate?
