Default Adding weapons lowers my fuel % when starting up?

Not sure why. do not believe it ever did that before.

When adding weapons to a naked plane my fuel % in the rearm\refuel menu goes down...

this causes me to have to wait extra long to load out.

any reason why?

Hmm strange, sounds like the maximum aircraft weight is set incorrectly so to compensate for adding weapons fuel is being removed. Does this happen in a particular mission? All missions?

Try firing up an empty, fresh mission in the editor and see if it does the same thing. If it does, that would suggest that the maximum aircraft weight is set incorrectly in a lua file somewhere. Try disabling any mods if you have any installed. If that also doesn't work then try repairing your DCS world installation.

If it only happens in a particular mission then sounds like there's an issue with that particular mission.

In some MP servers, FC3 planes (BRRRT version A too) start with a lower amount of fuel (e.g. 59%). This is to make their startup last as long as the fully clickable modules.

When you rearm the plane, your fuel doesnt go down, it already is down. Set the planned amount of fuel to 100%, set the ammunition/flares/chaffs/liveries, wait for fuel and armament and then BRRRRRRRRRRRttttt KA-BOOOOOOOOOOM
