An initial operational capability for Air Logistics Services (passengers and cargo) and pods (hose and drogue) air to air refuelling capability is planned by end-2012. A full operational capability, for Air Logistic Services and pods and boom air to air refuelling, is planned by end-2013.

It would appear that A39-004 and A39-005 both carried Spanish registration EC-336. Any clarification would be welcome.

Purchase of two additional airframes is also under consideration as at August 2014.
