Behind your stick theres 2 red covers for inboard and outboard weapon jettison.

 

For the fuel tanks, i dont know. I managed to drop the outboard tanks via the yellow button.

 

However the under-fuselage tank doesnt wanna fall. maybe thats intended?

The centre fuel tank has a release handle that sits on the backside of the flight stick. I usually find it by craning my neck right around the stick and looking down, and it's sits around where your pinkie would be on the stick. It's a little hard to find, but your cursor lights up green when over it.

 

External fuel tanks should be under that big yellow cover on centre console, haven't tried if it work myself yet though.

 

The weapon stores are dropped with the two red covers on the console behind the stick though. They have always worked for me.

Center fuel tank is controlled by a pinky switch on the control stick.. its hard to find in game, so i just mapped it to my hotas

 

Wing tanks are dropped by the switch with the yellow color. Although i have dropped them using the weapon jettison switches before i know the yellow one existed.

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.
