And boy, are the Italians envious of the mission system in the A310MRTT! Their Boeing has nothing comparable - they're still in the 'bits of string' trail planning era.
One gets what one specifies and pays for. There is a reason USAF did not specify either a KC-767 or an A330MRTT. They wanted a LOT more. Airbus could (or perhaps more accurately would) not deliver. That's one reason why their US partner pulled out.
