Aerial refueling?

Have you guys noticed the refueling pod on the RAF C-130? I think it might be a confirmation of in-Flight/Aerial refueling. Also as Laura posted a photo as a mid-air refueling tanker (DC-10/MD-11 I don’t remember) after the community voted for it.

I doubt it, if I’m being honest

It’s too early to speculate.

And the fuel thing on the 130 is by design

The C-130 is just like that, even though it might not be operational. There are far too many speculation threads.

Why would you want it? IRL it’s a pain in the backside. 2 seconds of panic followed by 5 minutes (depending on fuel load) of boredom trying to keep the hose slack, then off for more patrol.

Spike the basket or shock break the weak link and both the fuellers and your wing buddies hate you!!!
