KC-46 Tanker Aircraft: Program Generally on Track, but Upcoming Schedule Remains Challenging
Michael Sullivan (au)
Aerial refueling allows U.S. military aircraft to fly farther, stay airborne longer, and transport more weapons, equipment, and supplies. Yet the mainstay of the U.S. tanker forces -- the KC-135 Stratotanker -- is over 50 years old. It is increasingly costly to support and its age-related problems could potentially ground the fleet. As a result, the Air Force initiated the $51 billion KC-46 program to replace the aerial refueling fleet. The program plans to produce 18 tankers by 2017 and 179 aircraft in total. This report addresses (1) progress made in 2013 toward cost, schedule, and performance goals; (2) development challenges, if any, and steps to address them; and (3) progress made in manufacturing the aircraft. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
