RE: KC-X Tanker Rebid Starts Wednesday 8-6-2008

Quoting Ken777 (Reply 398):
The AF has shown that it wants a plane that is different than the one presented in the original RFP

And the problem is they can't dump the current RFP to write a whole new one or they face having to deal with a couple new laws that came in since the first one. Which would likely make the EADS sourced KC30 not capible of winning.

So they are stuck trying to bend the current one enough to get that square peg in the round hole.

It will be interesting to see if Boeing protests the re-written RFP.... what the outcome will be.

Given the length of this thread and the on-going delay in issuing the final RFP, please continue the discussion in this new thread:
