How do you AAR at pitch black night


Recommended Posts

And I mean like, no moon + thick cloud layers. I managed to do it by really cranking up the NVG gain but once I'm in close, its very difficult to stay in position due to the glare of the tanker's formation lights and the poor resolution + dim outline of the tanker through the NVGs. Tried to take them off, but the formation lights did not illuminate enough of the tanker to get an effective reference. 

 

Just wanted to see if anyone else did something differently or has a tip i'm not aware of.

I AAR'd with NVGs no problem in the Harrier. Just turned the gain down until the lights weren't distracting. They're for actual darkness, full moon or a light in your face, you have to turn the gain down.

Very carefully… I wonder if IRL the tanker keeps is lights off until you’re that close. I used the ACM mode on the radar but I’m sure that’s not polite in real life either.
