I had a real education dropped into my lap when I had to deal with it for real in sustained ops. All those things I thought I knew .... uh, I didn't. Good to learn, though. In a non permissive environment, the tanking puzzle is critical to get right. I would expect that any number of CONOPS documents have been drawn up, and probably a few tested out a Nellis at the very least.

Edited out incorrect assumption. (oops)
