P8 POSEIDON FUEL QTY

Recommended Posts

Hi.

The way I have my FSX set up is the Poseidon has a separate .cfg file within FSX , and reading the P8 specs on different web sites,it has 6 extra belly tanks , a ,bit like some B737 BBJ`S , this gives extra range over the normal B737, IS IT POSIBLE to modify the CFG file , to give the extra fuel capacity to the cntr tank to replicate these belly tanks , so it has the correct range, or will it mess up the FMS fuel/range calculation within the FMS.

Also the crew for the P8 is 9 crew members , and if the rear cargo hold is loaded as if it was the bomb bay , then the aircraft could be loaded as if it was the p8 as opposed to  the b737.

Do not modify the cfg file.

 

The P-8 is a visual model only, and was a freebie thrown in the last update since we had it lying around from a project a while ago.
