Reported here that Boeing submitted their latest, and last, proposal for the KC-X tanker requirement. Boeing had proposed a 767 based solution in the past, but had also mooted a 777 version as well. Competition comes from Airbus, which submitted a variant of the A340 for this RFP. The tanker replacement program has been controversial since 2002, when originally the Air Force planned to just lease 100 or so 767’s to replace the aging KC-135. That idea was rejected by Congress and led to the current competition.
