Here we go again. The door has been opened for protest over the KC-X. In a Flight article (sorry I can`t link from my phone) NG has begun putting
pressure on the USAF over the RFP wording. According to the spokesperson the way it is worded the AF wants a KC-135 that can take on fuel in flight
and if one of the competitors was to bid the R model they would win. He also said that all 373 points are equally weighted so that the amount of water
in the lavatory is as important as fuel offload. Guess we`ll be doing it all over again next year.
