Of course they do, otherwise the F-15 wound be rage inducing to refuel.

It's actually easier to refuel then the A-10, precisely because you have the lights as a reference instead of the boom and the aircraft silhouette, they're much more precise in guiding you. That+ the FCS - F-16 goes exactly where you point it.

Haven't use the boom in DCS for years - Does the boom operator in DCS actually fly the boom to the receptacle? Also will it 'latch' into the Viper receptacle and pretty much stay attached until released by the pilot, providing they stay reasonably in position ofc.

Can you fly close formation? If answer is yes, you can aar an f16.

Is that "refueling control-rates mode" related to auto-trim, adjusting with fuel load? That'd be awesome

Well the F-16 does that anyway. The refuelling rates is more a softened control response to make precise control easier. Similar to what to does with the gear down.

Do you guys think this will be simulated? Hope so.

Well, wouldn't be an accurate simulation of it without this feature, no?

There is no auto trim and no refueling rates in the real aircraft. Opening the IFR door switches to takeoff/landing gains, the FLCS pitch axis operates as a pitch rate command system until 10 degrees AOA and a blended pitch rate and AOA command system above 10 degrees AOA. Pitch trim in takeoff/landing gains behaves just like the stick. In takeoff/landing gains, maximum roll rate is fixed at approximately one-half the maximum roll rate available in cruise gains, regardless of AOA, airspeed, or horizontal tail deflection.
