    Thanks to an unknown author for a good selection. As far as I understand the topic about the KC-135 Stratotanker whose glorious age ends. 56 years of service is a long time. Going to replace the KC-46 will probably serve no less.
    Unfortunately, despite the huge length of Russia, our pilots have practically no experience of refueling in the air. Rather, the experience is mainly pilots flying on strategic bombers and on the MiG-31. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2012 "The IL-78 and IL-78M tankers carried out about 380 air refueling, transmitting more than 5 thousand tons of fuel." And the Americans for 2012. only in Afghanistan they performed 67020 refueling in the air while transmitting 444920 tons of fuel ...
    380 refueling at the fleet of 21 cars, i.e. less than 20 refueling per plane per YEAR! And considering that sometimes more than one aircraft is refueling in one flight, it becomes completely sad ...

      Personally, I was impressed by the nomenclature of refueling aircraft. It seems that among the bourgeoisie, any maize and any pilot are able to refuel in the air.

        And this is one of the conditions for adopting an aircraft for service in NATO, as it facilitates the rapid transfer of aircraft from one theater of operations to another. So I agree to the account of the “corn-mailer”, but not to the account of the pilots, nevertheless, every pilot is taught this skill and not every pilot "possesses it from birth ..."

          But the refueling of helicopters and tiltrotors is generally amazing.

              The impression of refueling in the air of rotorcraft is striking. This is a dangerous and even very dangerous business.

                Well THERE IS IT THAT and NEED TO BE USED. Such areas, especially when flying from the American continent, are known, meaning, and they need to prepare “SURPRISES” there. What kind?

        the American government will declare such an accident a new terrorist attack by al-Qaeda, they say that some Arab terrorist who refused to study the landing at the flight school hijacked a plane and blew it up over the city. Or magically got into the plane with a martyr’s belt and shouted “Allah Akbar” blew himself up together with the unfortunate tanker wassat

    A question for those who know why we do not have a hard trunk? and the speed of refueling them 1 against our 2 on the IL-76?

      This is called a fuel rod. Fill through it faster and safer, why domestic designers could not make an analogue is not clear. Both the IL-78 and the KC-135 have three refueling points, but we have all three hose cones, while the adversary has a hose cone installed only on the wing refueling points. The photo also shows that the fuel receivers on planes are different, for marine aviation the fuel receiver is in the form of a retractable rod, for the Air Force, the fuel receiver is in the form of a neck where the rod tip is inserted. This is due to the fact that marine aviation does not have air tankers with a fuel boom, only a hose cone.

            ... professionals, only less bourgeois fly

            The general use of refueling tanks is generally characteristic of the Western Air Force for a number of objective reasons: 1. Small capacity of internal tanks (if we compare the same type of aircraft with Russian) Example: Su-27 volume of internal tanks max / normal 9400 / 5240 kg, f-15 - 6103kg (therefore use external to 3's PTB and 2's conformal tanks), 2. more importantly, western birds have to fly far to sow democracy.
            So it is not a matter of professionalism, but of necessity and opportunity.
            And the possibilities of the Russian Air Force are growing, but the Western military budgets are becoming shallow ... and not only the Western ones - "" Our security assistance to Israel, our closest ally in the Middle East, is being postponed, "said the head of the US Foreign Ministry. the year that began on October 2014, the United States planned to provide military assistance to Israel in the amount of about 1 billion dollars ...

                Ну delayed(for an unknown amount of time) \ pauses \ decreases .... the meaning is the same - there is NO money and it is not clear when it will be.
                On technical reasons, here I completely agree with you when the country is bankrupt, so to speak, not to fat.
                Paralysis of power in the USA, this is far from related to financing of Israel, but paralysis relations to Israel are just direct. Obama "does not tolerate" Netinyahu and this affects foreign policy.

                The residents of Israel would have won, that's for sure, because to constantly attack and fight with neighbors will not be possible without funds in the military budget.
                An article for 2012 year ".. Israel’s approved budget amounted to 91 billion US dollars, and the Moscow budget this year has exceeded 50 billion. This suggests the conclusion that the budget of the state of Israel is only equal to two budgets of Moscow? 7,5 million people live in Israel, and in Moscow, according to the latest census, 10,3 million. " "Israel’s military budget for 2012 is about 13 billion. Of these, 3 billion is subsidized by the United States." "The power structures are the largest part of the budget, the lion's share goes to the Israeli Ministry of Defense as always ... The budget of the Israeli security forces is not limited to these amounts. There are also budgets of the Israeli intelligence agency MOSADA, there is a Shabak budget that is included in the budget of the ministry Head of the Knesset. The budget of border guards with the name “MAGAV Police” is part of the budget of the Ministry of Internal Security "http://www.pro-israel.ru/byudget-israelya.html
                The result is simple: "At the same time, according to analyst Clyde Mark, the Israeli economy is not self-sufficient and depends on subsidies and assistance from abroad, primarily from the United States." according to the wiki.
