Israelis have experienced an upgraded aircraft refueling system

4
Israel Aerospace Indutries (IAI) has tested a new refueling bar with electric control. The tests were carried out on the passenger aircraft “Boeing” 767-300ER converted into a tanker, Lenta.ru report with reference to the press service of the enterprise.



Details of the tests are not specified, it is only known that they were successful. According to the press service, in the future, “IAI plans to install a new refueling bar on convertible passenger liners B707 and B767, as well as military transport planes C-130 Hercules”. In addition, in the case of incoming orders, can be upgraded already used tankers such as IL-78.

In January of this year, the vice-president of Bedek (a division of IAI) stated that “the company began to develop a fundamentally new system for refueling combat aircraft in the air.” According to him, it “will be a flexible hose connected to three aerodynamic surfaces like small unmanned aerial vehicles”, each of which will be equipped with an electric remote control system.

The publication notes that today, for the most part in the air, rigid rods and "hoses-cones" are used. An aircraft equipped with the latest system can refuel simultaneously up to 3-x aircraft.

      Israel came up with an interesting solution for refueling in the air, experts should study the experience of using this system.

      Trite, make money. They don’t need it, but other countries need it, therefore, what not to develop ... With a flexible hose, it is suitable for the Russian Air Force.

            Iran has the wrong kind. level, alas, Israel in quality, financing, allies surpasses Iran. But in terms of quantity, yes, Iran is superior, but there is another question, why bother when you can send ISIS to Iran? A direct war, whatever it may be, is dangerous for "business".

            In the 80s, Iran was much closer to us in terms of weapons and equipment than today. Their army is minikollos on feet of clay. Would they be our immediate neighbors - they would behave more modestly (like Syria, for example), and from the distance to cower ... did you ever see a monkey mocking a tiger tree? Because he knows that without good reason a tree will not climb.

              And Us. Do not disgrace, our Hamas government lost. You still behaved quietly in Iran about the civil war in Syria, so Assad is silent if it weren’t for the USA and Israel was much more modest and did not underestimate the enemy with 70,000000 people

                "do not underestimate the enemy with 70,000000 population"

                It is not possible to evaluate the enemy based on the size of the population. what's the connection

      And where does the radius of action, for that matter? And if you need to keep a large air group in the air for a long time over a certain square (covering the ground forces during the sweeping of the city, for example)? Send them fuel sms? We have 400 fighters, not 4000 - rotation is sometimes unacceptable and undesirable.

    Details of the test are not specified!

    That's when the details will be, then write an article. And so, well, no way! New rod. Up to 3 planes. One or what?

            I read ..))) They threatened that they would destroy everything at once ..! But the thought came (at the expense of additional corrections in the air) Maybe 40 years gathered around the planet to fly until someone shelters them ..))) No offense ... laughing hi

                  I read the comments - yes, they say, they discussed the topic ...
                  This system is still useful to Israel, for example, to sell to China, to denyuzhku for it. Yes, and, as the professor says, they will train engineers, teach young people how to work, there’s no live view of what they earned on kulmans, now this is probably not relevant - rather, on computers. Yes, and experience what happened. And this is an experience that can only be obtained. Studying someone else's experience is getting an education, developing one's own is already the birth of a specialist.

                    In fact, China has probably copied this technology. In the near future we will see their option. Israel rival and not only.

    Remember the release of the hostages by Israeli special forces in Uganda. This was in the seventies and they then used refueling. In addition, they sometimes bomb for example caravans with weapons in Sudan. So they need it themselves.
