UAE request KC-46

The United Arab Emirates has emerged as a surprise customer for KC-46A Pegasus, having formally made a request to buy 3 of the tanker aircraft, according to manufacturer Boeing.

Sounds very much like a political order especially considering the Emirates also have 3 A330MRTT.

UAE hardly need tankers for its own defense. It’s merely a vanity purchase or one that could allow additional naughty foreign adventures like the nonsense taking place in Yemen.

Unlike the hypocrites in Germany, the US will support any equipment purchased.
