FSX US Navy Boeing KC-135T Drogue Tanker

Jump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

US Navy Boeing KC-135T Drogue Tanker. This is a KC-135 tanker with navy drogue that was adapted for use in FSX. The original FS2004 KC-135T aircraft textures/model from Rok Dolenec was combined with the FSX-ready tanker gauges from Bob Chicilo (for Mike Stone's KC-135 Tanker) to make this useable and flyable within FSX. The tanker gauges include: VC-clickable buttons, B737 style radio stack, GPS9, throttle quadrant, and autopilot panel. There is also an AI traffic flight plan included within the package that has the KC-135T flight plan: Depart KSAN-KLAS, 1900L Pacific, cruise at FL230/.63 mach (within USAF tanker standards). Return leg departs KLAS-KSAN, 2040L Pacific, FL240/.64 mach. By Christian Snow.

Title and Introduction

KC-135T Refueler w/Navy Drogue, adapted for FSX.

Overall compilations, modifications, and tweaking done by:
Christian "Sludge" Snow


1. Virtual Cockpit w/FSX-style clickable buttons.
2. B-737 style Radio Stack Panel. Shift-2.
3. GPS 9 Panel. Shift-3.
4. Throttle Quadrant. Shift-4.
5. Autopilot Panel. Shift-5.

* This version has only the Navy Drogue (basket) version enabled. The Boom not retractable, it is always in the lowered position. This was done primarily for multiplayer and in FSX, there is no workaround to get the boom animation where everyone can see it happen other than the one player in a multiplayer game. Sorry. If anybody knows a workaround, feel free to email me and I will flight test it.

** There is a ready made AI Traffic flight plan from KSAN-KLAS, 1900L Pacific, FL230,
380 KTAS (.63 mach).


- Unzip KC-135T Navy Drogue to desktop or temporary folder.
- Copy/paste KC-135T folder into FSX/SIMOBJECTS/AIRPLANES folder. Its now selectable from in-game FSX aircraft selection screen.

TO INSTALL AI Flight Plan:
- Inside FSX/SIMOBJECTS/AIRPLANES/KC-135T/Traffic folder, copy/paste Traffic_KSAN_KLAS_KSAN.bgl into FSX/SCENERY/WORLD/SCENERY folder.

Statement of Use

The compilation of these KC-135T (V1.85, V1.9) aircraft files is simply to get a working KC-135T with Navy Drogue for all those that want an FSX useable/flyable Tanker. I had to combine the UXA Panel upgrade of Mike Stone's KC-135 by Bob Chicilo to get this plane adapted for FSX.
Additionally, this Tanker also compliments the "Sludge Hornet" modification along with Jivko Rusev's new HUD and Refueling Gauge.

My intention was to add to the experience, realism, and flavor of FSX by combining all the KC-135T files into a hassle-free download and install that would give FSX compatibility for an already fun and proven Microsoft Flight Simulator Tanker w/Navy Drogue.

It was never my intent, nor is it now, to put out this .zip file with the intent of financial gain or infringement on the copyrights or credits of anybody involved. If I have left out any person in the credits or any person feels I need to remove a modification/effect/gauge, notify me and the situation will be rectified quickly and properly.

The "KC-135T Navy Drogue Tanker Compilation" is freeware and is open to any modifications within the bounds of copyrights and permissions listed below, especially Microsoft Corporation.

I take no responsibility for any adverse effects this modification may cause. Use at your own risk.
