For AMCA, DRDO plans an indigenous retractable refuelling probe

Under its Technology Development Fund Scheme, which allows it to finance projects by giving grants to both public and private sector industries, the DRDO has begun developing retractable air-to-air refuelling probes for the AMCA programme.

The AMCA fighter jet is equipped with a retractable air-to-air refuelling system and a sophisticated fuel system to suit its operational and technical needs.

The technology chosen for the AMCA is an articulated probe and drug system, in which a hose with a drogue connection from the refuelling aircraft is attached to a trailing hose from the receiving aircraft.
