Singapore confirms A330 MRTT buy

Singapore will obtain the Airbus Military A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) to replace its Boeing KC-135R fleet.
It's not clear how many examples Singapore will obtain, but the number of tankers to be acquired could be six.
Singapore’s interest in the A330 MRTT type has long been rumored.
Given Singapore's apparent interest in the Lockheed Martin F-35B fighter, which requires a boom for air-to-air refueling, the country is likely to configure its aircraft similar to those used by Australia, with a hose and drogue unit under each wing and a boom under the tail.
