Why would a state ANG need a refueling tanker?

Diana Rose, probably because they have fighter jets in the air national guard and Air Force Reserve Units.

If ever needed, all types of military equipment needs to be available in reserve, as well as the people who are trained and proficient to operate it.

You never know when you might need to declare war on Minnesota.

Dear KC-46 team, this boom arrangement worked just fine. Yeah, in the -46 air frame he'd probably be in what's normally the aft baggage hold, but he's technically not "on the main deck" as it is, and has headphones on for the net(s) he has to work, so what if he has to drop a little lower for the -46? In my opinion, you'll never get your wham-bang remote vision system to provide the critical 3D that direct eyes-on currently provides. Even with your "redesigned" system, I'll wait for the first collision report or break-away call...

Did this plane get new engines? They look huge.

Diana, yes the planes are in state Air National Guard units, but they belong to the Air Force. We couldn’t afford to keep all Fighter/Tanker/etc... units on Active Duty as it costs less to employ Guard/Reserve units than it does regular Active Air Force units. In event of an emergency or conflict like Desert Shield/Desert Storm, they can be “activated” for Federal duty overseas.

Many Guard/Reserve pilots are civilian airline pilots (who are probably happy to have flying opportunities (& a paycheck coming in) during the Covid pandemic...besides, if you’re a pilot you love to fly anything except a desk) & other Guard/Reserve members have civilian jobs on the outside

This country couldn’t respond to any crisis w/out the Guard/Reserve assets. After Vietnam, a lot of military assets/occupations were moved to the Guard/Reserve so any conflict after VN would have to involve the people of America.

There are enough things going on that even w/Guard/Reserve tankers, the military had to hire a civilian company, Omega Air Refueling; to provide air to air refueling assets w/707’s & DC-10’s.
