Re: Boeing E-4B Replacement News and Discussion Thread

As I understand it, the E-4B platform was procured because the VC-137C models serving as Air Force One (SAM 26000 and SAM 27000) lacked the communications suite, the floorspace and the endurance to serve the President effectively in the event of a major nuclear exchange between the US and the Soviet...

On a meta level, the E-4B prosecutes a nuclear exchange and the E-6B carries out the engagement.

Perhaps for long drags have additional KC-46 sortie as part of the group so the primary KC-46 can offload as much of their fuel as possible for the fighters and then get topped off from the secondary KC-46 to complete the trip themselves (somewhat similar to what the RAF did for Operation Black Buck).
