KC-10A Extender

FILE PHOTO -- A KC-10A Extender from the 6th Air Refueling Squadron, Travis Air Force Base, Calif., cruises on a mission while deployed to the 2nd Air Expeditionary Group, Naval Station Diego Garcia. Although the KC-10A's primary mission is aerial refueling, it can combine the tasks of tanker and cargo aircraft by refueling fighters while carrying the fighters' support people and equipment during overseas deployments. The KC-10A can transport up to 75 people and about 170,000 pounds of cargo a distance of about 4,400 miles. Without cargo, the KC-10A's unrefueled range is more than 11,500 miles.
