I found this and put it on my desktop.
Great pic. Although I'm not sure that I'd want to get into a dogfight with Zero's with my drop tank still attached.

It's too big to post but here's a link.

Clan_Graham, you need to upload it to some other site. Getting message... "you do not have access to this document" S!

Hmmm... makes you realise the difference in size between the Hellcat and Zero.

NB. It works it you right click and download the image to your machine.

It wasn't uncommon at all for carrier fighters to engage with tanks still attached. Everyone needed every drop of fuel to get home, and early on, US tanks on Wildcats were too rare to jettison.

Thanks Clan_Graham. Nice shot btw. S!

All droptanks were jettisonable. No sense adding fuel to a firefight. But.... if you forget to drop them, it just makes a bigger wienie roast. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
