Jettison center tank? Jettison smoke pods?

Hi.  I know how to jettison all three fuel tanks.  I know how to jettison my wing tanks, leaving my center tank.  But I have two questions regarding the DCS f15c in flight:

 
1.  Is there a way to jettison my center tank, leaving my wing tanks?
 
2.  Is there a way to jettison smoke pods?
 
Thanks!

No to #1 (at least in DCS), IDK about #2

Smokewinders act as a weapon so Jettison Stores command should get rid of these.

 

There's no selective jettison implemented with FC3 jets so bear in mind you'll lose all the missiles too.

 

How do you manage to jettison wing tanks seperately from a centerline?! Did not know this was possible cause when I JFT all 3 come off simultaneously.

the F-15 drinks from all three tanks almost equally, so the situations where you would want to drop some tanks but not all seem few. in answer to your question I don't think there is any way to accomplish this in game (drop only centerline) although I believe on the real eagle you could jettison even individual pylons themselves if you wanted

I guess I'm a little late on this but if you press the jettison weapons command instead of the jettison tanks command (LCtrl + W by default I think), then the wing tanks come off first. If you press it again, the CL tank comes off, followed by I think 2x wing pylon missiles, then the other two then the fuselage stations etc.
