Great news, but I didn't know the UAE was looking for, or even needed tankers. It will be interesting to find out how many they order. My guess is 3-4 airplanes.

Reportedly they ordered three A330MRTT bringing the total order book of A330-based tankers to 26.

Currently, they don't have any, so why not ?

I think they'll also order the boom with it, because of the new F-16s.
Exceptions confirm the rule.
