Thread: In-Flight Refueling gauge + video

  1. #1

    Default In-Flight Refueling gauge + video

    Hi guys, I have been working on an In-Flight Refueling gauge recently and it is finally ready. The gauge can be installed on any aircraft and allows refueling in the air from any aircraft - in free flight or multiplayer. Andy Niko is the co-author of the gauge - without him I wouldn't have come up with the idea and the improvements that came in the development.

    This is a short demo video of an in-flight refueling from a KC-135 Stratotanker, where the gauge is integrated with the improved Acceleration Hornet HUD:

    The gauge can be downloaded here:

    The KC-135 from the video can be downloaded from the link below, it is for FSX:

    Great info and add-ons! Can you use the KC-135 for AI as well too?

    NICE!

    Thanks, John! Yes, the "KC135RT Fixed Drogue" model from the link above (the one you see in the video) can be used for creating AI flights (the drogue is always extended). I searched for planes that can work as tankers and this is the one I liked the most!

    It works with any aircraft... I just refueled my F-14D with the help of an unaware P-180 Piaggio (had to deploy flaps to keep its speed) !!

    The only thing is that it seems incredibly fast to refuel.

    When I tested the gauge I went into free-flight multiplayer sessions and refueled from unsuspecting passenger aircraft. Including from an Air Force One escorted by a couple of F-18s

    Neutrino,

    Thanks for your work, you ensured a world of fun !!!! A maybe stupid question; when you refuel and get gas, does the fuel of the refueler go down accordingly (so basically every time I refuel I "steal" it) or not?

    Cheers,

    Paolo

    Thanks, Paolo, I admit it would be cool to reduce the gas in the tanker as you refuel from it I would have enabled it if there was a way but unfortunately it's not possible

    There is a new KC-135T Stratotanker with NAVY drogue (basket) for FSX that you can download from here, it's the best to refuel and easiest to install in my opinion:
