Because we already have a fleet of A330 MRTTs, once or which was already fitted for VIP Ops. They just gave it a new paint job because poor old Boris got upset about flying around in a grey airplane, infact I think I’ve seen via the RAFs social media that this jet had been used more for AAR on QRA shouts than its main purpose of VIP Transport since it was repainted 😅
