Re: Embraer KC-390 News and Discussion Thread

Obviously the Brazilian Air Force found that the (refueling) capacitiy of the KC-390 isn't sufficient for some of their tasks and so they plan the additional acquisition of a larger platform. That should eat up some of the financial resources that were designated for the KC-390. Fuel capacity accor...

The E3 project is only possible with powerful, modern and economical (new) turboprops. But there is not much information escaping from GE or PW. As Embraer does not usually imagine things, it is to be expected that such a turboprop will be available for a future midsize military transport airplane.
