Northrop won't bid on USAF tanker
from Defense News
"Northrop Grumman has determined that it will not submit a bid to the Department of Defense for the KC-X program," Northrop president Wes Bush said in a late afternoon statement. "We reached this conclusion based on the structure of the source selection methodology defined in the RfP (request for proposals), which clearly favors Boeing's smaller refueling tanker and does not provide adequate value recognition of the added capability of a larger tanker, precluding us from any competitive opportunity."
