Fuel tanks have several uses in ys. First and foremost, they extend your range. This is neat and all, but why sacrifice a hardpoint you could have weapons on, especially considering your jet can already get to where it needs and back on internal fuel? Well consider this: more fuel makes you less agile. If you carry a low fuel load and tanks, you can still have good range, but if you see trouble in the skies you can drop those tanks and regain your fighter's top agility. While removing your fuel tanks once they are empty (usually at every 800 units) is recommended, you may choose to keep them for bombing unarmed targets.
