Unfortunately, Singhaji is bang on the money with his point on the lack of refuelling assets! While the new 90T capacity MRTT would be great, but the numbers wouldn’t be nearly sufficient for us to handle the demand which would spread far and wide.
I personally feel for our needs it’s better to have more smaller tankers that we can spread out to take care of the demands in each sector, assisted by a MRTT/Midas. Ideally something like the A310MRTT. But considering how the of the platform is, we could actually use the A321 for this!!
Sorry about OT!!
I suppose all those 30 plus IL76 transports can be converted to tankers by palletised equipment?
