The KC-10 Extender is an air-to-air tanker aircraft in service with the United States Air Force derived from the civilian DC-10-30 airliner. Though there are 59 Extenders currently in service, they are greatly outnumbered by the older KC-135 Stratotanker, though the KC-10 has a significantly larger fuel capacity. Conversion to the KC-10 involved only minor modifications to the DC-10, the largest of which was the addition of a boom control station in the rear of the fuselage and extra fuel tanks under the main deck.

The KC-10 is currently the world's longest-ranged production aircraft, and will continue to hold that record past the introduction of the Boeing 777-200LR, though future 777 variants may range further.

Strangereal

The Extender was widely used by a number of countries all over the world. Recognized as an important asset, it gives the important air-refueling capabilities one country needs.

Some examples of this include those used by Erusea during Operation Countdown, the battle over the Comona Islands southeast of Usea, ISAF during the second attack on Stonehenge, Emmeria during the battle of the Selumna Peak and Estovakia, operating dedicated airframes for its Aerial Fleet led by the Aigaion.
