It's Official: Airbus Wins Indian Tanker Competition

We've known about this since November last year, but now it's official. Airbus has beaten out the Russians to win the Indian Air Force's new generation mid-air tanker bid. The Airbus A330 MRTT has been found to be the lowest bidder in a two-horse race against the Ilyushin Il-78M, six of which the IAF already operates.
Wire services quoted an Airbus Military spokesperson today as saying, "We are pleased to confirm that we were selected by the Indian government following a tender for air refuelling tankers."
