    it's on the way with new patrol boats and very long flights to e.g. La Runion. France has the second largest maritime EEZ, and should take care of it.

    As a Finn who stood next to F-35 last Saturday I really hope we'll choose Gripen E (or Rafale or Typhoon).

    That is a real problem (establishing compatibility betweeen JASDF and SCAF)

    We'll throw in donating the Turkish F-35s to Kurdistan just for the giggles
    Think the Polish is the realistic take away here, the rest. Meh..

    I really doubt that the raw user requirements had much input into the selection. Much more likely to be some political posturing, or a redundant second-source 'insurance'.

    Still if they want to stand-up an entirely new supply chain for a single-digit fleet it's their money to burn. The Thai Air Force model if you will.

    Commonality with the USAF, I think you mean. It's unlikely that they'll be operating with the JASDF, & I think that's the only other KC-46 customer so far. Of non-USAF tanker operators they might operate with, Italy has KC-767 & everyone else has or is buying A330 MRTT.

    European sales impact of eliminating Turkey from F-35 program. (Of course, this only takes into account what is presently on the books. The lifetime footprint would be a lot lower.)

    Japan attributes F-35 crash to pilot disorientation.

    Low alt refueling
    Reduced foot print
    Commonality with other air forces
    Or something that hasn't surfaced yet (they are the user. They know).

    But don't take me wrong, the KC30 is a great airframe, especially for long range refueling and cross country deployment but tactically it remain less efficient.

    Very odd choice, given that as the article says they already have the A330 MRTT and Emirates ( the airline ) has ordered A330Neo.

    So what's their techical base for supporting the 767? None at all...
