MMF (Multinational MRTT Fleet) Acquisition

The MMF (Multinational Multi Role Tanker Transport Fleet) Programme provides a new state of the art military air transport and air-to-air refueling capability in Europe.

The MMF initially comprises two Airbus A330 MRTT aircraft commonly operated by the Netherlands and Luxemburg. The MMF Acquisition Phase managed by OCCAR includes the procurement of the aircraft and the first two years of support, with aircraft deliveries planned to start in 2020.

The MMF Programme was facilitated by the European Defence Agency (EDA) within their European Air-to-Air Refuelling initiative. The current MMF participating nations, the Netherlands and Luxemburg, have established a Support Partnership within the NATO Support and Procurement Organisation (NSPO) to acquire the NATO owned MMF and to support operation and sustainment of this fleet. OCCAR is managing the MMF Acquisition Phase on behalf of NATO/NSPA. NSPA will be responsible for managing the Follow-on Support and Operations Support Phase.

The contract for the MMF Acquisition Phase was signed on 28 July 2016 and the OCCAR-EA MMF Programme Division was subsequently established.
