Few weeks ago a German Airbus A310 MRTT with Aeromedical Evacuation configuration flew two dozen injured Ukrainian people from Kiev to Germany for a better intensiv care, while another aircraft is permanently stationed at the military part of the Cologne airport to guarantee 24/7 readiness for action, e.g. to evacuate wounded soldiers out of Afghanistan/Usbekistan.
Last year another aircraft with Air-to-Air Refuelling equipment cruised of Western Africa to sustain the French air superiority for "Operation Serval": the MRTT (Multirole, Tanker, Transport) is not just a strategic carrier, but with all its conversion alternatives a flexible mean for the German Air Force, the EATC Participating Nations and all other Allies within EU and NATO to facilitate remote operations abroad.
