With reference to previous threads on the subject: Saudi Arabia Buys 2 A330-MRTTs (by LHStarAlliance Feb 12 2007 in Military Aviation & Space Flight)
it is actually 3 A330-MRTT which were formally purchased today by the Saudi Arabian AF, one more than anticipated.

In a new development last year, RSAF Tornado IDS aircraft deployed for training with RAF Tornados, in the UK.
So in future, presumably they'll have better means to self deploy in this manner, for operational use though, like with the KE-3's they already operate, the main task will be to extend combat air patrols, which have to cover a large area.
