Самолет. KC-46A Pegasus. [Редактировать]

Boeing KC-46 является военным самолётом-заправщиком и стратегическим транспортным самолётом, разработанным компанией Boeing на базе авиалайнера Boeing 767. В феврале 2011 года самолёт был выбран ВВС США для замены устаревших KC-135 Stratotanker.
В 2006 году ВВС опубликовали приглашение к тендеру на поставку новых самолётов-заправщиков, который должен был закончиться в 2007 году. В январе 2007 года требования к самолётам обновились и было объявлено, что в результате тендера победитель получит контракт на замену всего парка KC-135 fleet. EADS совместно с Northrop Grumman снова предложил на конкурс модель Airbus A330 MRTT под обозначением KC-30. Соперником снова стал Boeing KC-767, который в силу меньших размеров вмещает на 20 % меньше топлива и груза, но является более дешёвым. Northrop и EADS объявили о планах сборки самолётов на новом заводе в Мобиле, где будут строиться грузовые модификации A330.
29 февраля 2008 года ВВС объявили о том, что для замены KC-135 был выбран KC-30, получивший обозначение KC-45A.
18 июня 2008 года Счётная Палата США поддержала протест компании Boeing против присуждения контракта компаниям Northrop Grumman и EADS. Такое решение привело к необходимости для ВВС полностью повторить процедуру торгов.
24 сентября 2009 года ВВС США начали новый тендер с более ясными критериями выбора победителя. 8 марта 2010 года Northrop Grumman отозвал свою заявку и объявил, что новые критерии заранее отдают предпочтение предложению Boeing. 20 апреля 2010 года EADS объявила, что будет участвовать в тендере самостоятельно с моделью KC-45 и по-прежнему предлагает производить сборку самолётов на своём заводе в Мобиле. 24 февраля 2011 года ВВС объявили, что контракт на 35 миллиардов долларов был присуждён Boeing. Заместитель министра обороны США заявил, что Boeing стал «явным победителем» по формуле тендера, учитывающей цену предложений, подготовленность самолётов к военным действиям и стоимость эксплуатации на ближайшие 40 лет.
10 февраля 2011 г. EADS и Boeing подали окончательные заявки на поставку заправщиков KC-X. 24 февраля 2011 г. ВВС объявили о победе машины Boeing.
ВВС США назвали четыре причины, по которым была выбрана модель KC-46, а не Airbus A330 MRTT:
1. «Большие размеры KC-330 не дают соответствующего увеличения запаса отдаваемого топлива»
2. KC-330 «…имеет больше факторов технологического риска инноваций и менее выгодные финансовые условия.»
3. «Размер площадки под KC-330 на 81 % больше, чем для KC-135E, в то время как площадка под Boeing 767 лишь на 29 %.»
4. KC-330 требует «…больших вложений в инфраструктуру и значительно снижает возможности по развёртыванию на мировом театре военных действий».
5. KC-767 имеет ручное управление гидравлической системой управления самолётом с неограниченным диапазоном режимов полёта.
В декабре 2013 года корпрацией Boeing в Эверетте была завершина сборка первого планера транспортного самолёта B-767-2C (заводской номер «VH001»), который был позднее использован для строительства самолета-заправщика KC-46A. В начале 2014 года командование ВВС США присвоило новому самолету-заправщику KC-46A название Pegasus.

12016-07-20. Завершены летные испытания танкера KC-46A.
Корпорация Боинг завершила летные испытания перспективного самолета-заправщика KC-46A Pegasus и объявила о готовности начать мелкосерийное производства. В рамках испытаний были проведены шесть демонстрационных дозаправок основных самолетов ВВС и ВМС США: военно-транспортного C-17 Globemaster III, истребителей F-16 Fighting Falcon и F/A-18 Super Hornet, штурмовиков AV-8B Harrier II и A-10 Thunderbolt II, а также другого заправщика KC-46A. Как ожидается всего будет закуплено около 19 подобных самолетов. Тэги: KC-46A Pegasus
