Poland considers IAI- and Boeing-converted 767 tankers

Poland has called for proposals for as many as four aerial refueling tankers, and according to reports in Flight Global, Boeing is pitching the 767-based KC-46A it is developing for the US Air Force, while Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is offering a tanker-converted Boeing 767-200 fitted with its new fly-by-wire (FBW) boom to meet a Polish Air Force requirement.

The Polish Air Force operates a mixed fleet of Lockheed Martin F16s and Russian-built RAC MiG-29 and Sukhoi Su-22 fighters, and currently relies on NATO for its aerial refueling needs.
