Ils n'en ont que 2 de transformés en Tanker, les mêmes que les Allemands, bientôt l'heure de les remplacer ... pour l'arrivée des F-35
Il faudra bien la capacité des A330 MRTT, ou des KC 46 (Et surtout une perche), et pour 2020 et après, ce sera du 330NEO, juste pour maintenir des F-35 en l'air !

In 2008, two of the five CC-150s were converted to air-to-air refueling tankers for the CF-18 fleet as part of the Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) program. The MRTT program was initiated because of a German Air Force requirement and provided a cost effective solution for the Canadian Forces. The converted aircraft have been designated as the CC-150T.
The RCAF uses converted C-130s, RCAF designation CC-130H(T), for tactical air-to-air refueling but is limited when deploying CF-18s overseas which is better suited by a Strategic AAR Platform. As a result of the CC-150s MRTT conversion, Canada regained its own strategic air-to-air refuelling capability, which had been lost when the final tanker-configured CC-137s were retired in 1997.
The first converted CC-150T completed its acceptance trials in May 2008.
