Mission

With the delivery of the new Airbus A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) transport aircraft between 2020 and 2024, the Multinational Multirole Tanker Transport Unit (MMU) takes over extensive air transport responsibilities from the participating nations. Of the eight aircraft currently being procured, three will be permanently based at Cologne Bonn Airport. The aircraft and the crews will stand by for air refueling and air transport operations including strategic aeromedical evacuation (StratAirMedEvac) 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 

The operations of the Airbus A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) fleet are coordinated by the European Air Transport Command (EATC).

The Senior German Officer, German Detachment, Multinational Multirole Tanker Transport Fleet (DEU SO / DEU Det MMF) assumed command over the German Detachment on 9 April 2019 and commands the personnel employed in this multinational environment.

Germany provides 62% of the MMU personnel, which will be augmented to 370 troops until 2023. In addition, it provides personnel for the support element in Eindhoven and Cologne as well as technical and medical specialist personnel required for the AEROMEDEVAC capability. The National Support Element (NSE) constitutes the backbone of the personnel employed in the multinational environment and reduces the administrative burden for the experts in the technical and flight areas as much as possible. All of them see themselves as one team, knowing that this is the only approach to accomplish the core mission of the MMU in the best possible manner.
