The 767-200 line was re-opened for the Japanese Air Force which ordered 767-200 AWACS, and possibly aerial refuelers. CO took advantage and ordered 10-11 new build 767-200s with the latest avionics and 777 style interiors.
The 767-200 will be built for a long time to come, the USAF plans on replacing their ageing fleet of KC-135s (707s) with new build 767-200 refuelers.
The current USAF KC-135 fleet numbers about 400-500.
