Thread: Refueling planes?

  1. #1
    Are there any refueling planes?

    And i mean planes where you can actually refuel at.
    Like a flying refueling-truck.

    It would be absolutely totally awesome to hang under a plane gulping lots of fuel and then commence an attack.

    I think that would be awesome but by the time a lane would have been refueled you would be 20 miles from the island you started over.

    Something like this has no use in a game like OFP. It's been done in flight simulators. Trust me, by the time you are aligned correctly for the in-air-refuel, the OFP island won't show up on your radar anymore

    Here's a pic of an SU-33 tanking in Flanker2.5

    Well, the plane can fly in little circles of course.
    Just give it some waypoints and cycle them.
    No biggy there.

    But like a lot of add-ons, it doesnt really have to be useful in OFP. It would just be really cool to have a working refueling plane in the game.
    Besides, i dont care if the island disappeared from the radar. i just follow the plane.

    something like an mc-130 would be ideal for refueling MH-60/47/53's

    For OFP i think this is the most likely plane for refueling missions.
    KC-130
    http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/kc-130.htm
    Notice on the pictures that it also does refueling missions for choppers.

    Other candidates are:
    the KC-10
    http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/bomber/kc-10.htm
    and the KC-135
    http://www.fas.org/nuke/guide/usa/bomber/kc-135r.htm

    you know it would be impossible to keep the same speed as the refueling jet in OFP. if you had a flightstick w/ the really fancy schmancy throttle control (like i do ) it would, it might, it wont... more likely
