Default F-14 Combat Refueling

I've been a pretty consistent lurker here since Leatherneck/Heatblur announced they were developing the Chariot of the Gods and I don't think I've seen this link posted before.


Anyway...


I found this footage while trolling YouTube and waiting for my laundry to finish. It's nothing terribly exciting, but I enjoyed watching it in any case. I believe the Tomcats are from VF-211.

Great stuff. This is my favourite part of the simulation, trying to master A2A refuelling. Can't wait to try it with the Tomcat.

Cheers!

I was recently listening to an interview with an F-14 pilot who said refueling was tricky in the Tomcat because the probe was behind the pilot's head, so he had to look backwards to see if he was catching the bucket. Obviously, this would screw you up, so it was primarily the job of the RIO to guide the pilot into contact. This should add an interesting element to multiplayer. Equally, I wonder how Jester handles it.

Doesn't seem to be the case in DCS: https://youtu.be/awqmQT1jaSs?t=3038

Thanks for the vid, forgot about that. It might be a peripheral vision issue then that I misheard as it being out of his field of view. He was saying that it was awkwardly placed for the pilot to the point that if he looked at it, he missed it, so the RIO would guide him in.
