Not sure I'd want to do it myself manually, but it could be an interesting setting for servers to have a realistic refueling and rearm time...

I think it is a server setting. I notice longer times on some compared to others.

That would probably just result in people switching to a different available client slot (I know I probably would). As much as I like realism, just sitting on the tarmac waiting for ~20mins while seeing and doing nothing, would be kinda boring imo.

 

With proper moving AI ground crew that'd be a different story. But I don't expect that happening anytime soon

This kinda reminds me of those that asked for Boom operatior slot... sitting in a plane for 30 mins, solving cross puzzle? hmmm boring as hell

 

But we all have different likings.

Lol, there is no such setting in DCS.

Must have been a change to the game in general then. I can remember rearming happening much more quickly before. Of course I don’t play online very much, it’s been a few years.

I'm playing DCS on a regular basis for the past 10 years, singleplayer and multiplayer and can't recall such a change. The time it takes to refuel/rearm depends on the amount of fuel and weapons to be loaded.

No, this is just another case of your not being all that familiar with how the game works and imagining things to fill up the gap.

 

Charitably, you might be confused by the restocking time of airports, which will obviously limit how much munition you can load up an aircraft with, but the rearming process is the same as has always been. An that's still not a server setting.

How about "Repairing Simulator" where you have to put in several hours to several weeks to repair a plane.

 

It would be perfect for something like a dynamic campaign to the tune of the one in that other sim. Where aircraft availability takes maintenance into account.

 

Though preferably, we'd have the functionality to control whether or not the 180s repair is available or not.

 

 

As for the OP, I'm pretty sure ED has said that they don't have any plans for this, owing to the workload of animating arming an aircraft with each individual weapon type.

 

What I would like to see though is the step down from that, to have weapon pallets/trolleys/carts/whatever they're called, with the weapon they're carrying be adjustable in the ME, allowing weapons that are compatible with whatever particular pallet/trolley/cart etc (exactly like how pylons work on aircraft), as well as more airfield equipment in general.

So you're telling me the pilot has to leave the plane for the repairs IRL or how does he manage that? :huh:

Boom operators perform other aircrew related duties when not AAR. KC135 boom operators also act as flight engineers, flight attendants (if passengers are riding along), CG loadmaster for logistic support flights, and help with navigation. They only transition from front flight deck to the Boom position while on the AAR track and anticipating refueling ops.

 

Sometimes career fields are more interesting than you think... 😉

Being able to troll the AI right back would be the best thing ever.

Release now, ED!

Well, you have lawnmower, train station, gas station and other simulators now, so why not?

Maybe it could vary by aircraft? I can recall flying the A-10C online long ago and the rearm when you spawned in was almost instant. Arming the F-18 takes almost as long as the whole startup. The Hornet can be armed while you’re starting up but if I recall the A-10C can’t because it needs to load the DSMS. I haven’t flown the Hog online in years though. Think I’ll give the Tank Killer a spin though!

Nope, arming takes exactly the same time for every pylon. Because the A-10C has more pylons than the Hornet it needs longer to arm than the Hornet.

You need to arm the A-10C before you load the DSMS, not the other way around.

Right, that’s what I meant. So I used to arm the A-10 prior to startup. Don’t recall it taking as long as the Hornet does now. Clearly I don’t play online very much, it’s been years. But when I tried it again just recently I almost felt like some thing was bugged, it takes so long.
