New tanker to bring increased capabilities to warfighter
Numerous KC-135 Stratotankers sit on the flightline at Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. Air Force officials announced the selection of the Northrop Grumman company to replace the aging KC-135 Stratotanker fleet. Up to 179 of the new air refuelers, called the KC-45A, is expected to enter the test phases in 2010 with the first mission-capable aircraft by 2013. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Joshua Strang)
