BLUFRSAF refuelled its own as well as American and Australian aircraft as part of Exercise Pitch Black 2022.
Aqil Hamzah writing in the 'Straits Times' makes the following points:
- The US Marine Corps operates the US F-35Bs.
- Singapore should have its own F-35Bs in 2026.
- The F-35Bs were refuelled using the MRTT's under-wing pods, allowing two fighter jets to refuel simultaneously.
- Singapore has six Airbus A330 Multi Role Tanker Transports (MRTT).
