Air-to-Air Refuelling in the Vulcan



  • Hey guys,

    Very pleased to see the Vulcan in X-Plane; no doubt the product of lots and lots of hard work! Does the sim currently support the ability to air-to-air refuel (Black Buck style)? If not, are there any plans to introduce this feature later down the line?

    Thanks again for all your hard work!

    @Digby "This X-Plane 11 Vulcan package includes the B Mk2 model as well as the K.2 air-to-air refuelling variant with hose drum unit and animated hose and the Maritime Radar Reconnaissance (MRR) variant."



  • @Voice-of-Reason Thanks for the prompt reply! I saw the product specs, so the B2 has the ability to take fuel through its probe (and the K2 can offer fuel to other aircraft by the drogue)? I.e. each are physically modelled systems capable of receiving / transferring fuel (and are not purely 'aesthetic' options)? If so, that's brilliant!

    Please forgive my inability to read the product description my overzealous response, but I am very excited by this prospect! 😀

    @Digby It's not actually operational and we've not see that in X-Plane but will look into it. Obviously for the meantime you can just top up the fuel from the menu.
