Pentagon acquisition chief Kenneth Krieg said the request for proposals for the U.S. Air Force’s KC-135 tanker fleet should be issued before the end of this year. The Air Force intends to replace about 500 KC-135s, which are 45 years old, with a smaller number of new aircraft. The primary contenders for the KC-X tanker contract are the team of EADS/NG, which is offering the Airbus-built KC-30, and Boeing, which will present a version of its KC-767. Boeing already has versions of its KC-767 operating with the air forces in Japan and Italy. The Air Force could also opt for a larger aircraft than the medium-sized KC-30 or KC-767, according to Air Force officials. If that is the case, the aircrafts that would be considered include the A340 and 777, both of which could carry significant cargo payloads, according to Air Force officials.
