Default [MISSING TRACK FILE] Checklist page shows wrong weight of unguided rockets

I tried searching if this has been reported, but couldn't find anything.

If you load an F/A-18C with 2.75" rockets, the "Checklist" page shows way too much mass of the plane when the rockets are loaded. Considering the plane still flies, it must simply be the reporting page that is wrong (as in, the weapons aren't actually that heavy in the simulation)

This is on current open beta patch, but this bug has existed for a *long* time, maybe since the start.

Video showing what happens when you load 8 packs of 2.75" rockets on a Hornet: https://youtu.be/tZHIpy10F64

The rearm screen shows it should be about 42700 pounds, but it goes to over 61000 pounds on the checklist screen.

When you fire the rockets the plane mass decreases rapidly back to normal, so it think someone put a zero too many, somewhere.

Extra video showing when you fire the rockets. Seems they weigh about 180 pounds each, which is about 10-15 times too much compared to reality:

Reported this literally ages ago, but never got looked at. With screenshots and even a track IIRC.
And it's not just the checklist. They are that heavy. There must be a reason the Hornet flies like an A-10 with 8 Lau-61s... 8 Mk. 83s should be a lot heavier and she performs by far better with those.
