VIDEO – HOW AIRBUS TRANSFORMS THE A330 INTO AN A330 MRTT AIR TANKER
GETAFE, SPAIN – The Airbus A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) has earned its reputation as the new generation aerial tanker of choice for military services worldwide, like the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) – receiving its first A330 MRTT last week as the successor of the RNLAF KDC-10 tanker. The new tanker aircraft can also be operated as a transport aircraft, and can also carry up to 300 military personnel. The aircraft starts as standard A330 and is subsequently extensively modified. Watch in this next Airbus video how the A330 MRTTs are now equipped for their multi-mission tasks in an optimized industrial process – allowing 5 aircraft to undergo conversion every year:
