NSPA, OCCAR revise MMF agreement
The NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) and OCCAR have revised their cooperation agreement for the Multinational MRTT Fleet (MMF) programme.
Originally signed in 2014, the programme aims to acquire a pool of Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) aircraft available to participating nations.
Due to more nations joining the programme NSPA and OCCAR have revised their agreement so that the NSPA will acquire eight MRTT aircraft and carry out the mission and tasks stipulated by its governing body; while the OCCAR executive administration will act as the contract-executing agent for the MMF acquisition contract with Airbus.
The contract includes three optional aircraft to accommodate future growth of the programme up to eleven MRTTs.
