Will test it out and let you know.

EDIT: So F/A-18C can't seem to tank with the IL-78M. Will try the F-15 and F-16 with a KC-135

 

Also, seems like the only option in orbit now is circle. How do I get a tanker to racetrack pattern again?

Add another waypoint.

 

Try the hornet with the USN tanker plane thingy...

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

You can tell planes to refuel via advanced way point options, not got access to the game, but the option is there.

Just one point on the fuel setting in the ME, its for internal fuel only. So if you set 3% and he has external fuel drop tanks then he has a lot more fuel than you think (I spent ages recently hunting this one down!) and will happily cruise around for over an hour.

 

Set a low fuel state and no drop tanks and with a suitable tanker nearby he will automatically go to it and refuel as long as it is closer than any friendly airbase.

You need another waypoint after the waypoint at which you set the orbit for race-track to be available in menu.

F-18s do refuel but only if they are in the same coalition, try a S-3B.

Is it possible to tank a Su-33 from an S-3? I tried making a simple mission where Russia was on the blue side and when I (Su-33) checked in with the tanker (S-3) he called chicks in tow (even though we were the only two aircraft in the mission. Is this a bug or is it just not possible to tank Russian birds with US tankers and vice versa?

Yes it should be possible. However it is important to note that the S-3 doesn't carry much fuel on board, and is meant to give a splash of gas if needed to land on the carrier and not to top off the tank.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.
