Working on a jet that can refuel other jets on bases all around the world.

It has over 2000 LF.

Testflying now.

I've added more fueltanks in the middle, it now has 2560 LF on board. Mass: 21.105t :o

I have been working on jet fighters. I built a bunch of simple, small planes and learned something from each of them. This is the result.  G0pTEZ0.jpgon10JUu.jpg

Also, might I add that the fuel flow priority feature and autostrut are 300000 IQ tools that everyone should use. Seriously, they are SO useful.

I set out to make a kerbal-scale aircraft with all the details of a 1:1 model and... failed. As it turns out, this one is still about 10% bigger than I was targeting. This may wind up getting finished and released, but not as a Kerbal-scale model.

With that in mind, I did what any rational actor would do, and chose a plane that was 10% larger. Here's progress where I left it for the day.

Yes, courtesy update 1.6 ;)

Actually, that revamp was courtesy update 1.5 :)

Pinging @pTrevTrevs just so he gets the right info.

EDIT: Oh, and the white version is optional. By default it's black.

You are right of course, thanks for the correction.

I mixed up the recent part revamp heavy updates. What a great "problem" to have, isn't it? ;)

A tight fit . . .

I enabled the rear-wheel steering in order to make it easier to wiggle under the cargo bay.  (you can tweak this temporarily, too, to reset it when you drive away.)

I found if I drove straight in, it worked pretty well.  But if I was more pains-taking in the approach, it was harder to get lined up!!

After about an hour of fooling around, I realized that the KSP 1.6 "slip-sliding around" bug of the waiting cargo plane was what was defeating me!!  The airplane was moving south slowly like a glacier.  Don't that beat all!?

So then I just drove up by the side of the cargo bay on the "downhill" side (south at KSC) and patiently waited for the gd-plane to slide over the fuel truck...  then dropped its gear to make the transporter 'sit' while I loaded the rover.

Now, ain't that grand!?  :(
