Comment(s):

The KC-767 is derived from the commercial B-767.

Potential sales:

Brazil:

Does need to replace its four KC-137 (Boeing B-707) air refuelling aircraft and intends to purchase three aircraft.

Colombia:

Its tanker has been converted by Bedek in Israel who converted a B-767-200ER.

Israel:

Currently operates B-707 aircraft converted as tanker. Two candidates are considered. The KC-46A currently undergoing test and development and ordered by the USAF and Japanese Air Self Defence Force or a converted B-767. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is converting a B-767 to a tanker aircraft.

Italy:

The tankers are equipped with both the boom and droque and hose refuelling systems. The last is installed under both wings. 14 Stormo (Wing) operates all four aircraft.

Japan:

Its tankers are equipped with a boom refuelling system. To add more refuelling capability it purchases three KC-46A Pegasus tankers. 404 Hikotai operates the four tankers.
