I am enthusiast simulation pilot of C-130 since a couple of year.
Now I try to dip into the technical basics of this aircraft.
I attache a fuel tank schema.
My question: in which sequence do add the fuel?
l/r aux first and than l/r main or l/r main first and than l/r aux?

Are there any documents available to understand technical basics?

Many thanks in advance

As far I know there is now technical reference.as the Rt aux tank is closer SPR panel than other tank fuel firstly enter into the Rt Aux..then #3 main tank--Lt aux--#3--#4 and finally #1 tank.Morever as there is large volume fuel tank it will not much fuel difference if you open all the tank at a time.
