This Japanese pilot is not only refueling to participate in the war game and get a maximum learning experience, but he is also practicing refueling using 3 fuel tanks (1 under the fuselage). The trip back to Japan can only be made by stopping or air to air refueling. The use of 3 tanks does limit any aircraft's "dog fighting" capability.
