    Info for Training Mission

    Hi all!

    I'm working on a training mission for the F/A-18 involving:
    - A/A refuelling
    - A/A BVR
    - A/A DOGFIGHT

    I would like to have some info on:
    - realistic altitude and speed for refuelling (KC-130, KC-135 MPRS and S-3)
    - best initial altitude and speed for A/A BVR and DOGFIGHT (all fighters: Su-27, Su-30, Su-33, MiG-29, M-2000, F-14, F-16, F/A-18 and JF-17)

    Thank you!

    KC135: depending on the receivers, and loadout of the receivers - if it's purely F/A-18s in a training setup (not with a lot of bombs and stuff), then I'd say FL220-240 and IAS 275 kts for Navy guys. Watch out though as in DCS you don't set IAS, you set Ground Speed and they vary with the altitude.
    S3: if it's a recovery tanker then 10.000 ft, 275 kts.
    KC130: this is not my field of expertise, but i'd put it somewhere in between. They hardly fly above FL240 that I can say, so I'd put them down to FL160-180 and 250 kts IAS.
    Good luck!
