  1. The KC-46 is an aerial refueling aircraft based on the 767 airframe. It was the winner of the USAF's KC-X contract, and is intended to replace (partially) the KC-135, a 707 based aircraft which is very old. The contract award process was a colossal shitshow, featuring proposals based on the 767, A330, and An-70, and involving numerous protests, lawsuits, and other crap. However, the Boeing entry ultimately won. Unfortunately; the aircraft is now having difficulty refueling large aircraft such as the C-17; https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/boeings-kc-46-test-run-complicated-by-c-17-refuelli-423831/
