MRTT contract hides the VVIP transport. that is the real reason done so fast and bought the used ones. MRTT conversion to be done much later.Didn’t the RCAF discreetly manage to get its fingers on 2 soon to be retired A330’s with the intent to convert them to refuellers, aka the MRTT?
Or something to that affect?
I remember reading somewhere credible (non-Canadian source) that we put a deposit, or some kind of ‘something’ for 2 MRTT aircraft, to be acquired & converted at a future date. (Probably to avoid a standard competition?)
But now that I think about it, maybe you are right. Maybe it just announced that the A330 was the only option we were considering, and 2 of those aircraft would be refuellers? (But if buying MRTT, I’d think they’d all be refuellers?)
My wires are all mixed up, but I think MRTT is a sole source contract when the time comes.
(F**k. You’re welcome folks. Thanks for reading my post about nothing!)
