I’m fairly certain the pilots can actually see the lights, we, in VR, have a hard time seeing the location not to mention the shape of them...

I am quite sure that the lights are designed to be used with NVG and therefore are very dim

At night they will be dim. In day they will be bright. But they are not all that bright ever

Many a real life boomer had heard pleas to that effect, usually in a less polite form, and the reply is invariably "Sorry, sir, the lights are full bright!". 🙂 They really are that dim. At night, it's OK. During the day, it's better to look at the tanker. If you can make out the lights, good for you, but they're usually too dim to see.

 

KC-46 has LED director lights, so those would be bright enough to see in daylight. That said, we don't have a KC-46.

It´s really supposed that tanker lights at night refueling is only mean to be seen with NVG? Cause in the game you can´t see it without NVG

Last time I tried I could see them both at night and at dusk, and I fly in VR. Of course, I haven't tried night AAR in 2.7, but I don't think that particular thing had changed.

No change, still close to invisible with any sunlight on my VR setup.
