Boeing has won a $5.7 billion post-production contract to prepare the US Air Force’s new fleet of K-46 Pegasus refuelling tanker aircraft for combat capability.

The Boeing KC-46 Pegasus is a military aerial refueling and strategic military transport aircraft developed by Boeing from its 767 jet airliner. The new KC-46 fleet is planned to replace the US Air Force’s ageing fleet of Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers.

Work will be performed in Seattle, Washington, and is expected to be complete by April 28, 2029, the US Department of defense said in a statement Monday.
