What's the Canadian AAR requirement? Don't expect Trudeau to spend money on an asset that only the Americans use.

The whole side bar into an RCAF tanker does highlight the consideration of range.

Only the F-35 meets the range requirements on internal fuel

And once you hang gas bags and weapons on a Super Hornet, the USAF would likely not want to fly their stealth F-35s or 22s to do an Arctic intercept along side a giant radar target.

The Gripen . . . Short legs, no good.
