Διαφορά μεταξύ των αναθεωρήσεων του «Airbus A310 MRTT»

καμία σύνοψη επεξεργασίας
 
EADS has taken advantage of [[Boeing]]'s difficulties over the USAF [[KC-767]] deal, restating their bid for the USAF contract (though many observers doubt the MRTT's chances). EADS has won the recent UK (through Airtanker consortium) and Australian contracts to provide AAR/AT for both air forces with the A330.
 
A310 MRTT is significantly smaller than A330 MRTT. Since production of A310 airframes is over, it can only be made from refurbished airliners, or as an upgrade to A310's already used by Air forces (option chosen by Germany and Canada). As a tanker, it has very similar capacity to [[KC-135|KC-135R]], but, because of the larger cabin, it is much more flexible, offering good capacity for cargo, troop transport, VIP transport, or other use, lacking only the capacity to land on rough strips to qualify as a strategic transport. Airbus hopes to sell it to some of the countries that need to replace the [[Boeing 707]]'s they use as tankers.
