Description ::

Air to Air refuelling has added an interesting strategic dimension to military warfare by redefining the ‘reach’ and ‘patrol time’ of aircraft. Indian Air Force, in its quest for modernization and strategic growth, armed itself with this potent force multiplier in 2002. A decade of tanker operations, with diverse receivers, complex operational scenarios and employability in multinational exercises has not just validated the air to air refuelling concept for IAF operations, but has made powerful inroads into the conventional warfare planning and thought process. 78 Squadron of the Indian Air Force has the privilege of being the only dedicated air to air refuelling squadron. This all-colour pictoral book of 100 pages is compiled by a team of Tanker crew from 78 Squadron and covers history and development, aerial refuelling s ystems, strategic/tactical implications and employment, flight refueller aircraft since inception, present day tankers in service, refuellers equipment development and the latest developments in air to air refuelling.
