Lockheed Martin KC-130J

The KC-130 is a aerial refilling version of the C-130J. It features 2 ways to refuel, aerial refueling and ground refueling. I am only requesting the aerial refueling because on the ground you can fill up whenever you want.

  • Maximum cruise altitude: FL280

  • Maximum speed: 362 knots

  • Range: 2,385 NM

  • Capacity: 42,000 lbs or 19,051 kg

  • Length: 97ft 9in

  • Wingspan: 132ft 9in

  • Height: 38ft 10in

  • Empty weight: 75,962 lbs

  • Maximum takeoff weight: 175,000 lbs

This is my first post in the #features category so let me know if I did something wrong!

This would be an interesting one, in real life the F-14 and F-18C used the drogue system which requires the refueling boom on the receiving aircraft to be flown into the basket led by the tanker. I don’t know how complicated adding such a system would be but if it is possible this is something worth voting for. The herc can only go so fast which makes refueling even more fun!

My word, it just goes to show how much Air-To-Air refueling has improved over the years.

Then again, CLHD did stick it in there. It’s hard as hell for me.

This would be another cool feature to add for sure.
