Default Complete Air to Air Refuelling Tutorial - DCS Fuel School - F/A-18C

I've been getting lots of questions about AAR and also noticed lots of people struggling to complete the procedure so I thought I would redo my AAR video with a more in depth look at how to refuel in the Hornet.


This is the first episode in our new series 'Fuel School' where we will teach you how to refuel all aircraft that can do so in the game!


This tutorial covers:


  • Building a Refuel Training Mission in the Editor,
  • Narrated walk through on how to connect to the tanker,
  • Mistakes and Misconceptions about Refuelling,
  • Helpful Visual Alignments,
  • Lesson Summary.



Any questions please feel free to shout out.


Mav
