How to request tanker's speed/alt wihtout AWACS


Recommended Posts

When no AWACS is available, it seems that the only way to find out it's position is by locking it up. But I found that after locking it up, it will not extend the probe for me to refuel ( and this is a bug?).

 

Moreover, the default range where it will give you the required airspeed and altitude is a bit too close for me. As I prefer starting my preparation early. Shouldn't there be radion commwith the tanker?

Locking up the tanker with the radar to get its speed usually works for me - as long as you keep your finger off the fire button.

 

Here's a little tutorial I did for the A-10 which might help:

 

 

I gave up on the Su-33 refuelling as it got to be hard work with FC.

Refueling the Su-33 is just the easiest thing!

The basket moves with you so even when you are going a bit to fast just sow down and the basket will extend again....nothing hard about it

I liked the old system were you could just hook the Su-33 up to the tanker and walk away from the PC and do something else whilst your jet filled up with gas.
