Updates for recent AAR improvements
* Radar is needed to check if you are close enough from the tanker
* Refuel The <refuel> properties defines ** what type of refueling you are capable of, (probe and drogue, or boom)** if your refuel system is ok to receive (use the serviceable property if you have a switch to open the refuel trap for example). ** the offset of the probe/trap from the aircraft model origin
* aar.nas is the actual system that checks the two above mentioned criteria and if both are true, refuels your tanks.
<type>probe</type>
<serviceable type="bool">true</serviceable>
<offset-x-m>0</offset-x-m>
<offset-y-m>0</offset-y-m>
<offset-z-m>0</offset-z-m>
</refuel>
</systems>
For the moment, flyable tankers are: KC135, victor and KC130 (in <tt>Aircraft/c130</tt>) if you need an example.
 
To add an AI refuelling aircraft, add it to AI/tankers.xml.
