KC767_OthersIndia has requested information from Boeing on the KC-767 tanker after the Indian Finance Ministry cancelled an order for six Airbus A330 based MRTT tankers last month.

The request is for six KC-767s potentially valued at US$1.5bn (A$1.62bn), with Indian defence officials telling local media that they “urgently need refuellers” and that they intend to “speed up the acquisition process”.

The KC-767 is in service with Japan and is due to enter service with Italy this year after a delayed development process.
