Air refuelling is the hidden force enabler allowing those countries with this ability to project their airpower around the world. Far from just the process of refuelling aircraft, it has changed the way we have fought wars in the last 70 years with many of the most well-known conflicts being dominated by airpower, which in turn is supported by air refuelling. This is an insight in this unseen side of the military.
