The Italian Air Force (ItAF) has commissioned its first two Boeing KC-767A advanced aerial refuelling tankers.

The tankers have been undergoing aerial refuelling training missions with the air force crew on an array of ItAF aircraft since their delivery in March 2011.

The configuration flexibility of KC-767A allows the aircraft to carry all passengers, all cargo, or a combination of the two.

The tanker is also capable of performing humanitarian response, disaster relief, and emergency aeromedical evacuation of personnel operations.

The third KC-767 tanker is expected to be delivered this summer, with the fourth to follow shortly thereafter.

All four tanker transport aircraft will replace the ItAF B-707T/T fleet.
