RAAF air refueling tanker KC30A completes its tour in the Middle East (0.44 mins)

An Australian Air Force KC-30A multi-role tanker transport aircraft has completed a four month operational tour in the Middle East as part of its ongoing commitment to Operation Okra. The aircraft is one of the most advanced air refuelling platforms in the world, facilitating greater reach for coalition air operations. The aircraft can operate at long ranges, delivering significant payloads of fuel to a wide variety of coalition aircraft. The KC-30A deployment is part of Operation Okra and supports the US-led Operation Inherent Resolve mission to defeat Daesh. Australia continues to work closely with the Iraqi Government and Global Coalition partners to counter Daesh and eliminate the threat to the region and broader international community.
