External drop tanks

I think there is a more general problem. I tried loading:

 

Pylon 5 and 1: R-60M * 2

Pylon 4 and 2: R-3S APU-13MI

Pylon 3: SPS-141-100

Pylon 6: Chaff/Flare Dispenser

 

The missiles on 5/1 disappeared (not loaded).

 

EDIT: It appears the bug is in the mission editor. Try applying the loadout again if things go missing.

 

Best regards,

Tango.

Guys,

 

whenever your payload disappears from some pylon, it means:

 

you are trying to load conflicting payload.

 

So ME will erase some of it, to keep the aircraft within defined payload.

 

EDITED: this is wrong [For example, you can't have 800 lit fuel tank + 2 x 490 lit, but you can have 3 x 490 lit.] but truth is it is currently disabled... It will be available in one of next patches. Apologies - exhaustion is extreme.

 

Same goes with SPS + ASO -> because SPS already contains ASO...

For payload limitation, do we need to follow the restrictions in Chapter 'Operation Limit'?

= Pinky switch on the stick, it's mouse clickable :)

 

The funny thing about that is I assigned it to the pinky switch on my X-52 Pro without ever knowing that. I was looking all over the cockpit for that switch and ultimately stuck it on the pinky switch since I can't assign airbrakes there like I normally do.

Here is a RL pic in that config. I have been able to load it up in DCS as well.

PS : I am always wondering why they have 2x490l as standard instead of a single 800l.

 

I can not load up 2x490l + 1x800 l drop tanks. When i try it it will show only centerline fuel tank. I tried to find something in the manual but nothing so far. Is it bug or it is simply not possible due to someting?

It was actually fixed in the last update. Before that this configuration didn't work (you could try to set it but when you started the mission you wouldnt have any external tanks).
