The US Air Force said that it would not be possible to complete the latest Boeing KC-46 refueling aircraft until at least October 2025, but it is still possible to refuel anyway. It is reported by IA “Red Spring” with reference to the publication Breaking Defense.

In the United States, the use of the latest Boeing KC-46 refueling aircraft was allowed, even though it can damage another aircraft during refueling

USAF officials said they would not announce the KC-46’s initial combat capability until RVS 2.0 was adopted.

The fact is that the remotely controlled telescopic rigid fuel rod of Boeing’s own design, equipped with a video camera system (Remote Vision System or RVS), turned out to be so clumsy that it poses a danger to a number of aircraft in service with the US Air Force, including the latest F-35.

It was the remote control system that was recognized as the reason for the clumsiness, which “blinds” from the bright sun and gives a distorted picture, focusing on which the docking operator can damage the refueling aircraft with a heavy and rigid bar.

The replacement advanced and redesigned RVS 2.0 video system will not be available until October 2025:an additional 19 months will be required to update RVS 2.0, pushing the timeline from March 2024 to October 2025”, — quotes Breaking Defense a statement by Air Force spokesman Major Josh Benedetti.

However, in September, the Air Mobility Command suddenly authorized the use of the KC-46 for combat operations, while “tanker can refuel all US military aircraft except A-10 Warthog”, the article says, however, without specifying under what flight conditions and which particular refueling systems are authorized by the Air Force leadership.

It must be said that in addition to the high-speed rigid filling line, the Boeing KC-46 is equipped with two more slow-speed flexible filling lines of the “hose-cone” type. The latter were previously suitable for refueling all types of aircraft with suitable docking refueling modules. It is also worth noting that these two systems are incompatible with each other: filling modules for receiving fuel from a high-speed rigid line do not allow connection to flexible lines of the “hose-cone” type.
