The Vigilante KC135 Air Tanker is a jet powered aerial refueling tanker designed to support bombers of the Strategic Air Command. The KC135 can carry over 200,000 gallons of jet fuel for refueling missions. This aircraft blueprint is fully rigged, and includes animated wheels, ailerons, flaps, rudders, turbines, and shuttlecock-shaped drogue. A destructible state model with damaged geometry, textures, and damage smoke FX is included along with turbine FX.

The vehicle is ready for import into your DIS/HLA (RPR FOM) simulation projects. As such, it is not set up as a traditional Unreal vehicle with an interior but can be modified as needed to suit your purpose.

A sample showcase/demo Blueprint has been included with an environment map and User Interface (UI). When you "Play" the map, the UI includes camera presets, sliders, and buttons to demonstrate the key functionalities of the vehicle.
