The Airbus A330 MRTT is a military derivative of the popular Airbus A330. It serves many nations around the world as a modern and state of the art Aerial Refueling Tanker, and VIP transport. It can also be configured to carry conventional cargo. It saw its first flight in June 2011. 45 A330 MRTT’s have been produced, Australia’s Royal Australian Air Force being its launch operator. The aircraft is primarily based of the A330-200 body and fuselage, but can be considered a different aircraft. 11 nations operate the aircraft, however, 4 nations operate them under NATO’s Multinational Multi-Role Tanker Transport Fleet.

There is a major lack of military aircraft in Infinite Flight that are pleasant to fly and have up-to-date standards. There are only 2 military aircraft that feature live cockpits, the A-10 and TBM (French Air Force livery)
We haven’t had a military based update in a long time, and with recent speculation that the A330 is receiving a remake, these underrated beauties shouldn’t be left out. This aircraft is also a way to combine the Military and Commercial fans in Infinite Flight, as the A330 and A330 MRTT are practically the same aircraft with a boom attached. There is currently only 1 Aerial refueling vehicle ingame, the KC-10 and KDC-10. Many people love military aircraft, and for those who don’t, or haven’t tried flying them, this aircraft is a great mix of CA and MA. My personal favorite livery on this aircraft is the RAF one, I love the stripe that cuts along the side of the aircraft.
As always, your vote is highly appreciated.
