I too am waiting for this functionality...
We keen 5 points of retention on all our backup jobs which run daily, monday to friday (and use archive jobs to keep archive retention).
We run MONTHLY backup to tape jobs for all our backups.
With 5 retention points set on the jobs, we normally have 2 full backups on disk at any one time (Forward Incremental - Dedupe unit). Because we only run the tape job monthly, each time it runs, both full backups are new to the tape job, and it writes both. Some of these backups are 2TB+ and this takes too long to write to tape.

With such settings, tape job will, indeed, see and copy only one .vbk file. Actually, you might as well switch to reversed incremental mode in order to have only one ("the latest") backup on disk which, then, will be copied to tape mediums.
This job still processes the latest backups to the offsite repository?
under advanced > incremental the text says "Recommanded for backup to tape"?
The option "last full backup to tape" would be the best . Hope Veeam will consider this option in a feature release
