    KC-46 Moves Closer to Production Decision After Successful Flight Test

    WASHINGTON — With the July 15 refueling of the A-10 Warthog, the KC-46A has officially completed all flight tests needed ahead of a milestone decision this August.

    Now the tanker program can a request approval from Pentagon acquisition head Frank Kendall to move forward with a Milestone C decision for low rate initial production, the Air Force announced Monday evening. That approval would allow the Air Force to award a contract to Boeing for LRIP 1 and 2, which amounts to 19 aircraft.
