Tanker 767.

This is coolbert:

Yet once more from DEBKAfile:

"Israel works at speed to convert Boeing 767 airliner into refueling tanker"

10 August.  

"US sources report that the Israeli Air Force contemplates giving up on the US Boeing's KC-46A Pegasus as its future refueling tanker for long-range flights because of delays in its delivery . . . Israel can't wait for the Pegasus. Israel Aerospace Industries] is therefore working at top speed to convert the Boeing 767, a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner with a range of 7,000 to 11,000 km. into a refueling tanker, to replace the outdated Boeing 707."

Conversions and modification to an original with marked improvement is something THE ISRAELI IS VERY GOOD AT DOING. THE BEST IN THE WORLD I MIGHT IMAGINE.

Also an indication of a certain degree of resolve and determination one might assume.
