If the distance(shortest) between the base and the target is less than the Strike radius distance you find in the DB, the AAR is disabled.
If you drag yourself too long above the target or if you make a detour (to avoid a country or a SAM) and changed the flight plan must change everything.
In Wayne's scenario, the target is at 2100nm and your B-2s have a 3325nm Strike radius for loading with B61et 2275mn with B83.
But if the plane has no target or is the A/C not allowed to shoot, it goes round and round to statut RTB (Called off) but it happens too late for B-2s .
AAR is disabled for all waypoints (WP) in this flightplan,so, if you change the doctrine of aircraft, each time it will reach a WP, refueling will be disabled again.
The personal doctrine of the aircraft must be changed if there is no WP before the refueling zone and you must modify the doctrine of the WP located before the refueling zone with Click Right on the selected WP then 'Doctrine,EMCON,WRA'(do not use Ctrl+F9).
If you do not adjust the 'Tanker Planner', the aircraft often refuel on return.
If you change the doctrine of planes after takeoff, they do not refuel to go because 'Tanker Planner' does not allow them (60% mission fuel) and they will not refuel because they have passed WPs that have deactivated refueling.
But I think the status 'RTB(Called off)' blocks the AAR
When you change the doctrine it works,the B-2 refuel to go, but on return "(in status 'RTB (Called off)') it does not work unless you ask them to do it. They go into status 'RTB(Called off)' so late that I had to get the Tanker closer to the target too.
Here is a video, I spare you comments in French:
In Wayne's scenario (see the save joint),I launched the mission 'Strike-Complex(B-52)(N)' with the B-52s, without activating the nuclear clearance and with in-flight refuelers, the B-52 Lemay#2 armed with ALCM will be able to return to the base but not the B-52 Lemay # 1 armed with B83 that will crush.
Yet the supply of the B-52 Lemay # 1 is activated until WP4 (from which it is deactivated) then it is reactivated after the WP7 but the status RTB (Called off) seem blocked AAR.Vous can save him giving him the order to refuel with 'Unit Orders/Refuel(if possible)/ ...'
I think the status RTB(Called off) blocks the AAR and I think it's not normal (But I told you already)
