Tanker Air Speed during Air to Air refueling

I was flying a TE mission in multiplayer and during air to air refueling the tanker speed dropped down to 180 knots while refueling. Has anybody seen this problem?

I’ve had the tanker throw me out to the wingtip very abruptly. Luckily I was last to refuel.

the lower I ever went was a memorable 180 something kts.
Then I had to give up as I was dropping out of the sky
That was a memorable MP moment

Yes, it’s some sort of anomaly or ‘bug’, but I’m not sure what triggers it.
At one point I had thought it was a second flight calling in to tank while another flight was on the boom, but that doesn’t seem to be it.

We have had the problem often and tried a lot of different ways to get around it. It seems to appear when ever we have more than 2 aircraft in a flight with humans in it. It is ok for the first pilot but then goes down hill after that. We have been able to keep the tanker speed normal by breaking up packages into 2 ship flights.
We have other issues sometimes however like AI tanking before us and never disconnecting. So I started putting up multiple tankers so we can choose another if one gets stuck.
