KC-135 Stratotanker

The KC-135 has been the U.S. military’s primary aerial refueling tanker since it’s introduction to service in June of 1957. In it’s 60 years of service, the KC-135 has refueled strategic bombers over Vietnam, nuclear deterrents over the Eastern Bloc, the SR-71, as well as allowing for the globe-spanning bombing runs of the modern era. A trio of KC-135s refuel each B-2 as it makes its way from Missouri to the middle east.

This KC-135 comes equipped with an aerial refueling boom that can be used to refuel any craft with an upward-facing jr. docking port. The Stratotanker is stable at a variety of speeds and altitudes, thanks to the strong dihedral and high angle of attack of the wings. This lets the plane to be refueled approach and dock without needing stationkeeping on the stratotanker.

In order to deploy the boom, use 0 to toggle the boom vanes up or down, then use 1 to detach the boom. It should redock automatically. If not, switch to the boom, toggle the vanes up and try again.
