S. Korea Likely to Select Winner for Aerial Tanker Project Tuesday

The Defense Acquisition Procurement Agency (DAPA) will likely select on Tuesday a bidder for its refueling aerial tanker project worth one-point-48 trillion won.
 
A DAPA official said on Sunday that the selection of a model among three competitors will be discussed in the DAPA meeting set for Tuesday in which a winner will likely be announced.
 
The three competitors are the A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport manufactured by Europe's Airbus Defense and Space; the United States’ Boeing KC-46; and the Multi Mission Tanker Transport from Israel Aerospace Industries.
 
The DAPA has completed evaluations on the aircraft in terms of cost, performance, operational compatibility and technology transfer.
 
South Korea plans to purchase four refueling tankers. Two tankers will be put into service in 2018 and the remaining two the following year.
