MaxPick: KC-46 (Pegasus) Aerial Refueler.

MaxSez: Lota talk about Aerial Refueling with a worn out 3 holer. Here’s that 3 holers replacement now in acceptance testing; The Boeing KC-46 (Pegasus)
Built on the Boeing B-767 airframe this is the ideal craft tfor this specialized job and a no brainer add to the IF inventory. The B-767 now in inventory just need a change of liverrfy and a few appendages. A snap job for the IF Programing Wizards. Makes sense to me!

Looks nice and would be a great addition to IF. Still prefer the A330 tanker though 😜


If there’s a 757/767 rework in IF this would definitely be nice to have ;)

@Chatta290… If it ain’t Boeing it ain’t going! Buy American is the new wave for the USAF. Read a newspaper lately, LOL… Regards, Max

It would have saved the US taxpayers money if they kept the contract with Airbus for their tankers. Just saying… And unless you fly this tanker it doesn’t matter what it is as you aren’t going either way.

I’d love that rework (then with it we can have this)


Now I will vote for this! Great feature request Max.

I would like to have this. Not love. I still prefer the KC-30A. If I get to the RAAF and get into the fighter division and a KC30 is not around, I may have to refuel from one of these!
