Default KC-135 MPRS is coming!

Just listened to Razbam November 2018 Monthly video, and was very happy to hear that they're going to give us the KC-135 with MPRS pods.




Woot, woot! Thanks RAZBAM, great news!

For newbies (like me ): What is the difference between this one and the standard KC-135?

Baskets reeled out from pods on each wing instead of just one reeled out from the boom (which currently doesn’t work correctly)

Ok, Thanks! So it's like the KC-130.



And what's the advantage over KC-130?
