Another role the F/A-18 has picked up is the airwings organic air-to-air refuelling role now that the S-3 Viking is being retired, which itself took over the role from the KA-6D Intruder. This F/A-18F from VFA-213 is fitted with four tanks and the refuelling drogue pod on the centreline. Note the extended refuelling probe. It seems strange that a type that has always been criticized for being short ranged is now a tanker!
