I ran into this kind of fuel tank. If I fit it in a plane's bomb bay, would the plane use it (use the fuel from the tank and add it o the total fuel quantity available) ? I never used this kind of trick. Thank you.

I found this reading about F-105:

" On a typical combat mission into North Vietnam, the F-105D carried two 450 US gal (1,700 L) wing-mounted fuel tanks, a 390 US gal (1,500 L) fuel tank in the bomb bay, and five 1,000 lb (450 kg) or six 750 lb (340 kg) bombs, and required inflight refueling going to and sometimes returning from Hanoi 700 mi (1,100 km) distant. "

I didn't know that F-105 had room for a...bomb bay, I thought it based on its wings loads only. Thank you gentlemen for help!

As a nuclear , low level penetration bomber, Kartveli deisgned the Thus this way.

Fortunately, in Vietnam the plane wasn't used for his original role!
