    RV Delta (Point Parallel Rendezvous)

    Lynx asked a very understandable question to which I couldn't give him a fully satisfying a answer.

    The RV Delta procedure as described in our 3-3.3 as well as several official publicly available documents has you fly from the Rendezvous Initial Point (RVIP) to the Rendezvous Control Point (RVCP)so you end up at the RVCP at the Rendezvous Control Time (RVCT).

    With DCS being DCS, is there anything we can use as an indication of what the RVCT would be? And is there anything else we should do besides using the DME and angle off the nose cues to facilitate the fighter turn-on seeing as tanker turn-on is not an option in DCS.

    Separate question, how long are the tanker track legs in DCS?

    A mission’s execution often reflects the quality, discipline, and tone set in the briefing.
