Re: Lockheed reveals new LMXT refueling tanker

I think a huge effort is going on behind the curtains to bring down USAF refuelling requirements, so also the KC46B can do the job.

Instead of the USAF objectively determining what are realistic global scenarios and requirements and calculate what lift is needed.
