I know not everyone uses them all that often but I've got a few missions where they are historically present.

Turns out that this latest patch seems to have the slipper tank up inside the engine compartment. Can anyone else confirm? I'll post pictures if nobody else can see this but it should be obvious.

Take a Spitfire IX, load up the QMB, and toss on a 30gal Slipper Tank.

Has this already been reported to Oleg?

Spit IXc:
on this one the tank is visible on the sides of the engine cowling, and looks like it is placed in the engine:
