A standard configured Amara class heavy cruiser is 75,000 tons with six missile pods. However it's fuel capacity is only 27,900 tons (plus a little in the pods). This isn't enough to support J-4 which needs at least 40% or 30,000 tons. This math is similar in the Ghalalk class configuration.

I'm not very knowledgeable on the Mongoose Traveller ship design rules. Is there something I'm missing? Did this get updated/fixed? Is it just a mistake?

There are Fuel Pods as an alternative, to the Missile Pods, makes choosing which pods to select interesting, I like Torpedo Pods. As already stated the Amara uses a TL15 reduced Fuel x2 Jump 4 Drive, which costs 1.25 times the normal J4 Drive.
