Boring logistics picture of the day: IL-78 tanker in PLAAF service.

This CCTV capture confirms that at least one of the three Ukrainian IL-78 Midas air refueling tankers is  operational.  Still, the overall PLAAF tanker fleet is fairly small, consists of an additional 12 H-6U (H-6 mod).  This small fleet is capable of supporting a limited set of air operations but not a sustained campaign.

It is a start never-the-less, albeit a slow one.
