If you weren't tanking on a regular basis then most squadrons would put them back on. The squadrons I was in and other that I know of would take them off once we entered the Med and put them back on when we left the Med. The biggest problem wasn't tanking from the A-6's or S-3's, it was tanking from the Air Force because the basket would do this weird dance, it wasn't as steady as the Navy's tankers where.
