Brazilian manufacturer Embraer has confirmed it is studying a military airlifter, the C-390, first revealed exclusively by Flight International last year.
The medium-size military transport uses technology from the Embraer 190 small airliner, but has a high wing and rear loading ramp.
Embraer says the C-390 has fly-by-wire flight controls and can be equipped for aerial refueling, both as a receiver and a tanker.

I almost guarantee the eventual jet will need the tailplane/elevator mounted as a T tail. They are clearly trying to leverage this design off the E170/E190.
