Jelle, yes it looks like a Brunty records hunt is required!

The Tankers were not as 'useful' as the C1Ks. A tanker could be used for tanking and trainers were as the C1K could also be used for trooping and freighting. I suspect this is the reason why the tankers RAF hours are lower. A quick calculation of 400ish hours per year for tankers and 800-900 for C1K. (although each airframe varies a fair bit)
