Your aircraft has ruptured fuel lines running from the fuselage and drop tanks. They need to be replaced and new ones are on order, but have not arrived yet. Those tanks cannot be used until you get the new lines installed. Meanwhile, the war continues and we have no spare aircraft. You will have plenty of fuel in the wing tanks to get across the channel and back to accomplish your mission. Now, get back up there- your country needs you!

I just like to have 25 gallons in my fuselage tank. Helps me whip the Mustang around
Also, I got it in my head today that I wanted to play with reversibility. But unless today's patch fixed it I can't

Nope,still no fix to date,the issue still exists.......it has been reported,but the devs have yet to give any clear indication of when it might be fixed,just the standard note from ED stating it's being looked into.......mind you the problem was first reported on 20th December 2018 !

In short having drop tanks on the P-51D at present only has a 'cosmetic' value,as their practical value is,to put it frankly.....porked !

I just want to be able to load the aft tank again to simulate the aft CoG change that the real life pilots had to fight with when they had a full internal load. I wonder if ED actually removed that on purpose because new pilots were crashing on take off with a full load? Surely not....
