A330 MRTT concept revealed by Lufthansa Technik

Lufthansa Technik has developed four cabin configurations for the A330 multi-role tanker transport (MRTT) aircraft, some 30 of which are on order or in service with air forces. The company already has a customer for the Governor configuration. The other three are called State, Rescue and Trooper.

“Aircraft used for civil or military purposes must meet different requirements depending on the situation,” said Wieland Timm, senior director sales for VIP and special-mission aircraft at Lufthansa Technik.

“We have therefore developed cabin layouts for four particularly frequent deployment scenarios, which will enable significantly more intensive and improved use of the aircraft in the future. The combined civil and military approval permits fast deployment of the machines for their respective missions.”

Head-of-states, governmental staff and delegations are catered for with the State and Governor cabins. The State interior is described as a “flying government office”, equipped to enable governmental or military staff to work on board. The Governor version is intended for larger delegations.

Meanwhile, the Rescue cabin, for humanitarian and medical evacuation flights, includes Lufthansa Technik’s modular Patient Transport Unit; and Trooper is intended for long-distance passenger or troop transport.

Lufthansa Technik worked with military services to develop the cabins, which it says meet NATO TEMPEST requirements.
