KC-30 / KC-45
The A330MRTT, designated as KC-30 was offered by Northrop Grumman and EADS to the US Air Force as successor of the current KC-135 Stratotanker fleet. With a possibl
e order for 179 tankers it was one of the largest competition in the US Air Force history. The competitor is Boeing which offers the Boeing KC-767 Advanced tanker. Northrop-Grumman and EADS won the contract on February 29th, 2008.
 

The KC-45 differs from the European A330MRTT in that it will be made for 60% by US companies. The engines will be made by General Electric. The aircraft will be build on a new plant in the United States.
