those aircraft will eventually get to a point where they are too old to economically operate. if that point is in the near future, does the RAF stand a chance of siding with the winner of the US KC-45 program or will they continue to operate little american hardware and side with the KC-30? which actually fits thier mission profiles better? i have no clue as to how the RAF operates, though lately have found myself very fond of thier a/c.
