TANKER NOT RESPONDING!


Go to solution Solved by Florence201,

Recommended Posts

Greetings! 

I've created a mission on DCS Mission Editor.
Whatever I do, the KC135 MPRS, is not responding.

 

1.) Easy radio is 'unchecked', both in my settings and mission's settings.

2.) the radio is tuned and checked, different UHF AM (F16 com 1) frequencies have been tried and tested.

3.) DCS repair has been done.

 

P.S.

- Mission attached below.

- I can perfectly communicate with the tanker in SP Instant Mission AAR

- I can communicate with tankers on multiplayer servers as well.

 

 

I would highly appreciate any help.

 

Thank You

Viper cannot tank off the MPRS. Only the KC-135 boom tanker 

 

As such, the MPRS will give you a stiff ignoring. IRL, MPRS will do both boom and drogue, but not in DCS

Really? I didn't know that.

I'll change the tanker and revert back asap.

Thank You

Edit: It worked like a charm, I didn't know of this bug.

Thank You Once again!

I think in this case you have been classically razbamboozled 😉

Technically it's not a bug, but rather a limitation of the current game engine: you can have a tanker with either boom or drogue, but not both at the same time. It is a shame indeed.

IRL, a MPRS KC-135 couldn’t refuel with both the boom and the drogue at the same time. The fuel plumbing won’t allow for it & aircraft being refueled would bump wingtips. Receivers are usually deconflicted by timing, but there are occasions when boom & drogue recievers show up at the same time.  Typically, we’d refuel the boom receiver first, since the offload rate is so much faster, then do the drogue recievers next.
