On a side issue any idea why the wedgetail has no winglets? I would have said it would benefit it's cruise profile and since you already have a huge radar beacon above you a reduced radar return couldn't be the answer.

If you look at my pic.. you will see some kind of antennae on the wingtips (in the plan view they look a little like wheels") this likely precludes winglets

The Wedgetail is air refuelable from USAF KC-135s and KC-10s. So range or on station time should not be a problem.
