Ok, Ive done this about once or twice, even after watching a demo of doing it in the F-15, then tried it in the Su-33 after watching a guide to that (Thanks IRONHAND!!! )
This got me thinking.. the Su has a refueling submode, which Im assuming is accurate, and the American planes changes to say Rf(the F-15 at least) in the corner, but Ill assume this is accurate too. What I dont get, is:
1st - Does that little submode for the F-15 tell you anything useful, it may have range to tanker, but thats all I can gather, could it atleast show speed or something and...
2nd - If thats not accurate, should there at least be a little more radio communication than "Cleared Contact" ie. when the tanker radios that its ready for you, could it atleast say its speed and altitude, even if you dont display it on the hud??
I guess I could get speed from radar(I think, not sure) and use that, but arent planes supposed to refuel with radar off?
