Japanese ASDF KC-767J

Japan became (after Italy) the second customer for the Boeing KC-767, the air-to-air refuelling tanker variant of the commercial 767 airliner. The first KC-767J for the Japan Air Self-Defense Force, as the country's air force is known, was delivered in February 2008; since then the complete fleet of four examples has entered operational service with 404 Hikotai (Squadron) at Komaki. Also available for passenger and cargo transport missions, the KC-767J is used to provide refuelling support to the JASDF's front-line aircraft. Australia and now the US Air Force have also signed up as KC-767 customers, the type having been given the official KC-46A Pegasus designation for its future USAF service.
