Mid-Air Refueling Technique for Su-33


Recommended Posts

Hey all, I had posted this response on the UBI forums to somone needing help with refueling so I figured I would put it here in case anyone needed help. ;) Lets say the Tanker is flying at 7000m and 450k airspeed.... As you approach 1-2km from the tanker: 1. Extend the refueling probe, and select your basket (1-Left, 2-Center, 3-Right) Note: Center basket is slightly lower than side baskets 2. Set your Altitude Hold at 6995 (your HUD will go from 6990 to 7000 so you must estimate the 6995) *PRIOR TO setting Altitude Hold adjust your vertical trim pitch for level flight. This is done so when you are near the basket and need to disengage Altitude Hold to make a minor adjustment you wont pitch wildly up or down. 3. Control your speed! Once you are 0.2-0.1km from the basket your speed should be about 455kph. Engage Speed Hold at this speed and bring throttle to idle. Continue to 0.0km from the basket and then reduce speed by disengaging Speed Hold to 452kph, then re-engage Speed Hold. v1.02-Continue at 452kph and line the probe up to the basket. Once you make contact, Auotpilot takes over and you can just hang out and watch your fuel gauge. v1.1-Just before contact you need to be as close to SAME speed as tanker as possible (450.1kph is ideal) The reason is the once contact is made Speed Hold is engaged at that current speed. *If you end up making contact going to fast, you need to retract the nozzle and tap Speed hold off and back on again, the re-extend the nozzle Now you need to keep an eye on your distance from the tanker (chances are you will be going slightly faster), and keep your wings level. 4. Once you are fueled up retract your nozzle and disengage your Speed Hold. Hope that helps someone p.s. Adding wind and turbulance makes for a good challenge [url]http://www.teambsr.com/[/url] BSR{L()Csta> Old School GR Squad Senior Squad Leader
