Heck yea! I fly the KC-10 in GAF, and I can confirm it actually does give fuel.

It’s been a feature for just over 4 years now I think. This was at GAF Red Flag 2019:

Also refuelled multiple times whilst flying to Nellis from the UK.

You do actually get fuel in-game! It’s been a feature in the sim for a while :)

You’ve got to hover around/keep formation with the boom of the KC-10 and you’ll see your fuel quantity rise, along with an onscreen message saying that refuelling has begun.

These are the aircraft in the sim that have AAR (air-to-air refuelling) capability:

  • F14
  • F16
  • F22
  • C130 (certain variants/liveries only)
  • C17 Globemaster
  • VC25 (Air Force One)
  • KC10 Extender (note: this is the only aircraft in the sim that can provide fuel to others)
  • A10

In case you’d like to watch a tutorial on how to refuel in Infinite Flight, here’s how it’s done:

And if you’re flying and would like to request refuelling, there’s a thread for that too:
