I do not believe it is an aerial refueling aircraft, so could someone tell me what is this DC-10?
What is that huge pod attached to the aircraft's belly?
What does this company, 10 Tanker Air Carrier, do?

Here is a little blurb I found..
"10 TANKER STC (principals of Omni Air Intl./Cargo Conversions) developed waterbomber conversion for DC-10-10; external tanks under fuselage hold 12,000 gal. and can be loaded in eight minutes and dropped with computer-controlled gravity feed system in eight seconds. It plans to exhibit aircraft and perform water drops at Paris Air Show."
