Project New


The Strategic Tanker Transport Capability (STTC) project will provide a capability to the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) to conduct Strategic Airlift and Air-to-Air Refuelling in replacement for the CC-150 Polaris.


This project will replace the existing fleet capability, including strategic airlift, air-to-air refuelling, Aeromedical Evacuations and Strategic Government of Canada transport. The platform will provide air-to-air refuelling for both domestic and expeditionary coalition operations, while complementing the strategic airlift capabilities of the CC-177 Globemaster and the CC-144 Challenger (or replacement) fleets.
