    cannot refuel

    I create a mission with a kc 130 and myself over the water west of kobuleti. When I'm in the air I approach the tanker and when he is .1 nm away I announce my intent to refuel. He says to proceded to 180 at 7000. I continue to follow him making my altitude 7000 and speed 180. I then hit F1 again to ask for precontact. He replies 'return precontact'. The boom never appears.

    You need to get closer. It will deploy when you are close enough.
    Approach tha tanker just below it and when not much away from the refuelling distance report ready pre-contract again, it will work.

      Hog can't refuel from a KC-130...

      There is no "Boom" ... Only baskets.

      You need a KC-135 (and not the MPRS version)

        a real HOG a hole just below the windscreen with a door over it. That's how the nose gets all banged up-from the boom missing the target and hitting the hull. Where do you get the idea of a basket?

          Your OP says you’re trying to refuel from a KC-130 Hercules.

          You can’t get gas from a Herc in a Hog.

            Sorry I misunderstood. So the KC 130 only has baskets.

                As Emmy said, you need to use the KC-135 (NOT THE MPRS VERSION):


                It looks like this:

                  I always smile when I see the Viper. I love that plane.
