Not half as big an error as me not realising that the fuelgauge has been changed in the recent cockpit update

I can also see that apart from the pit now having the 9.13 fuelgauge, they changed the display mode from "T" to "P"(indicated by the switch position), so that the tape now shows both internal and external fuel.

Good move ED!

A way to implement this to at least be able to replicate an appropriate sequence would be:


Press Jettison tanks .... only the cl tank goes (as IRL)
Press External stores button .... Wing tanks go
Then for each successive press of the stores jettison button each weapon is jettisoned symmetrically inboard to outboard.


The most accurate solution would be for specific Keybindings for Cl tank jettison and Wing tank jettison.

+1 ...

What kind of engineer came up with these yellow triagle pointers or whatever?! Do they point to the levels of overall fuel quantity at which the pointed tanks are possibly being drained at the moment?

They indicate remaining fuel interval when the tank they point to is empty - e.g. the remaining fuel quantity is between 2300 - 2800 kg when the internal wing tanks are empty.

I agree, I did the test yesterday, and LAlt-R jettison all fuel tanks!

Yeah, I think that's something that should be tweaked. Like the fact that when you want to jettison weapons (e.g. empty rocket pods) the first thing that gets dropped is your belly fuel tank, which you should have used to get home

Ok great, so another question arise to me, if the ПФ is for CL AND ПК is for wing drop tanks, what about the remaining KP light??

and also the menaning of the ПФ symbol on the left scale between 5k and 5.5k if with CL tank max is around 4.8k?

KP light informs you that internal wing tanks are empty.


ПФ markers on the left are applicable when no wing drop tanks are installed. Markers on the right are applicable if they are present.
