I'll write more detail about this in a comment below, but here's a short summary of what this is: this is an Airstrip made with Fuselage tanks which uses a grid of Docking Ports (3 for demo) to connect and refuel any craft which drives over it. Taken inspiration from a badly done Moon Landing during a livestream on Discord, the Magnetic docking ports allow an aircraft or a land vehicle to stay still on fuselage tanks, allowing for planes to fly vehicles without slippage. Try this out and see if this can be improved upon. This is a prototypical Proof of Concept, so I'd like to hear what you have to say about this!

    First of all to mention:
    Yes, this has over 350 tons of fuel in it. The tanks themselves can be loaded with just about anything as they are meant to be flat on the ground. Obviously you wouldn’t want to land on this.

    However, on a cargo plane with fuel tanks this would have usefulness in being able to hold tanks or cars still while flying so they will not blow up. Monopropellant will be needed to make tiny adjustments as the frictionless surface of a fuel tank can be treated a bit like in space, albeit 2 dimensional. This is a relatively small airstrip and without XML modding having a tremendous amount of fuel and possibly even employing all types of fuel with over 100 tons per type on a single airstrip can be possible with this, and anything that uses a simplistic Piston-Fuel Tank-Docking Port mechanism should be able to connect to it.
