The Bundeswehr received the next Airbus A400M


“The new Airbus A400M is made in a tactical modification, which allows it to be actively used in the combat zone. In particular, the aircraft is equipped with a DASS (Defensive Aids Sub-System) system, which protects it from guided missiles. In the future, all Airbus A400M transports for the German Air Force will be supplied in this modification. In addition, the five aircraft that have already entered service with the Bundeswehr will also be equipped with new protection systems, ”the article says.

Airbus A400M made its first flight in 2009. To date, more than 30 aircraft have been built. They entered service with the Air Forces of Germany, France, Britain, Malaysia and Turkey. In the German Air Force, the Airbus will replace the outdated Transall C-160S transports.

It is reported that "the volume of the A400M cargo compartment is of the order of 340 m³, which" allows you to transport all the main types of weapons and military equipment without first disassembling them ". The maximum carrying capacity of the aircraft is 37 t, 120 paratroopers, 2 attack helicopters or 6 armored SUVs can be placed on board.

      on 476 or IL-76MD-90A. And a simple IL-76 took 40 tons. I remember that I changed the engines every two months (the engine life in 1977 was 500 hours). The tests were carried out in Roshchino right away with work: "The commander of the crew in this expedition was the Honored Test Pilot of the USSR, Hero of the Soviet Union EI Kuznetsov, the leading engineer was I.B. Vorobiev. In December 1976, two serial Il-76 aircraft. These were practically the same Il-76 aircraft that were supplied by the VTA, but without weapons. "
      Achievements: the strip 120-300 ceased to be a runway, even the light version of the IL 76.

      Is this not the same device with which the "Antonov" was thrown by the euro-cheaters?

    The Germans also manage to forfeit the forfeit from the supplier.
    The German Ministry of Defense will demand compensation from Airbus for delaying the delivery of A400M military transport aircraft, Reuters reports citing the ministry’s report submitted to parliament.
    In August, the German Ministry of Defense demanded from Airbus € 12,7 million in compensation for the failure to meet the deadlines for the A400M.
    According to the initial supply plan, Germany was supposed to get 11 A400M in 2016, which would bring their number at the disposal of the German Ministry of Defense to 17. Instead, at the end of this year, Germany would have only 7 such aircraft.
    The German Ministry of Defense also plans to defer part of Airbus payments due to flaws in the radar systems and protection of the already received A400M. These funds will be paid when the capabilities of the aircraft are brought to the required level.https://rns.online/industry/Minoboroni-Germanii-p

      Well, a businesslike approach, all the more so when it comes to military supplies. An example worthy of imitation, of course, adjusted for your "monastery".

        Europeans could order for their Air Force aircraft with better characteristics, BUT from foreign customers. In order to support and develop their own aviation industry, they decided to do it themselves. In some ways they lost, but did not lose for sure, because. European plants were not left without a good order and the European aircraft industry did not stop in development.

      she is the most.

      Moreover, for A400M - there is a kit that allows you to turn it into an independent refueler within 3 hours.
      50 tons of airborne tanks + containers in the transport compartment + suspension of 2's fueling units on the wings.

      As a refueling aircraft, the A400M can barrage for two hours at a distance of 500 miles (930 km) from its base and can transfer 34 tons of fuel.
