    Basically he is saying. Yeah we know we bought a lemon. But we can’t keep flying relics. The KC135 is based off a prototype for what became the Boeing 707. That’s so old Ike flew on them.

    looks like there was some Tom foolery about. By October 1 a Vehicle was supposed to be delivered. GDLS could do that. Rhinemetall couldn’t. Not for lack of trying. They had to get approval to ship it by air by rail and by truck. They couldn’t do that they asked for a 90 day extension to get it to the army no go.
    to hand it over to the Army in Germany and have them do it. No go.
