Airbus Military has formally handed over the third A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), which is to receive a total of five of these advanced air-to-air tanker aircraft. Designated the KC-30A in RAAF service, Australia’s newest A330 MRTT was converted from an Airbus A330 jetliner airframe by Qantas Defence Services in Brisbane. The country’s no. 4 A330 MRTT will be delivered in December, with handover of the fifth aircraft scheduled for next year.
