Default KC135-MPRS Using wrong mechanism for F16

When approaching the KC135-MPRS in a F16C it will deploy baskets and will not let you refuel at the beam. Thereby making it impossible for the F16 to refuel at a MPRS.

Two different Tankers.
One KC-135 and one is the KC-135MPRS


The KC-135 is with the Boom and KC-135MPRS is with the Basket

Isn't the MPRS to support both the basket and beam? Like it's RL counterpart.

The KC-135 MPRS is not programmed to do it, only Basket.

I think his point is you should still be able to use the center boom as well.

Ah gotcha, I just read a post aswell about it saying the DCS core limits this... Thats unfortunate.

Thanks!
