I seem to get the impression that almost everything new the Air Force tries to manage turns into a mess. Is it because they can't agree on changes or freeze the project. Didn't they specify a some new concept for the fuel probe on the KC-46 which didn't work? Too bad because the AF has been waiting for ever to a replacement tanker.
