Seven of the eight military transports of the German Air Force are not ready for flight

84
Amid reports that not everything is OK with the combat effectiveness of the British underwater fleet, there are reports of military-technical problems in another NATO state. So, German magazine Der Spiegel Publishes material stating that seven of the eight Airbus A400M military transporters are not able to engage in NATO training and combat maneuvers. The material stated that only one of the eight aircraft is “on the wing”, the rest are either undergoing repairs, or their condition is assessed by experts from the commissions of the Bundeswehr.


The assessment of the technical condition of military transport aircraft in Germany is carried out after the incident at Kaunas airport. Then the plane of the German Air Force, on which the delegation of the German Defense Ministry, headed by Minister Ursula von der Lyayen, was supposed to return to Berlin, could not fly for a long time due to a detected malfunction. As a result, the minister and her retinue had to be transplanted to another transport worker in order to enable them to fly away from Lithuania.

The previous incident with the Airbus A400M German Air Force occurred in January of this year, when in the cockpit cracked glass during the flight. Another military transport worker of the German Air Force was forced to make an emergency landing in Sweden after the crew identified technical problems on board. According to one version, one of the engines crashed during the flight.

Seven of the eight military transports of the German Air Force are not ready for flight


The German magazine states that "in the" Luftwaffe "(German Air Force) are disappointed with the state of military transport aircraft." It is noted that the majority of these aircraft were delivered recently by the manufacturer.

Earlier, other German sources reported that the German Air Force commanded Airbus about 40 million euros for compensation.

        At one time, all of NATO felt bad, the submarines became steel, the planes did not fly, etc. It is hard to believe that economic and tidy Germans had problems with equipment.

            If we add to this the novelty of the design of the A400, then everything will fall into place. In Kaunas, oil was leaking from under the hood of the first engine. In principle, the competent actions of the crew: only the dead love heroes, no one needs them alive.

          The Tatar-Mongols had the practice of provoking the enemy into decisive action, thereby ambushing him. As they wrote that the probability of all submarines failing, and the more so posting in the media, is insignificant, I don’t think that the real state of this or that submarine is not a secret for the island state.

        At the expense of the British submarine, and the German fleet with their non-combat readiness, it’s easy to give but is hard to believe. Especially against the backdrop of the deployment of troops in the Baltic region, they say that you are afraid of us, boats don’t fly, planes don’t fly, tanks don’t fly, military personnel are generally disabled, why are they so afraid of them.

        As it turned out, the An-70 is good for everyone, but when promoting the A-400, Europeans primarily care about the development of their own aircraft industry.
        KG, albeit worse, but his own (and in some ways they are right here ...)
        To select the best solutions for acquiring new aircraft for their Air Force, specialists from the Western European Union conducted an analysis of the development status of promising military-technical vehicles in the USA, Russia and Ukraine in order to determine the feasibility and expediency of their purchase.
        In a generalized report, it was noted that the promising military aircraft S-17A (USA), An-70 (Ukraine, Russia) and its export version, An-7x, significantly outperformed the A-400M aircraft in a number of tactical and technical indicators, in particular according to the criterion “Payload / flight range”, and fully meet European standards, it was also noted that the development of the An-70 military-technical cooperation is ahead of the A-400M project by at least ten years. At the same time, their purchase for the Air Force of Western European countries was recognized as undesirable and the need for further work on this program was justified. The main arguments in favor of this are the relatively high cost of American aircraft, as well as the need to maintain and further develop the potential of the European aerospace industry and enter the international market with aircraft of its own design.

            They should probably be very happy that they made such a "fuss" for Russia (after all, they could feed their Air Force together and put a very competitive car on the market).
            But if Russia focuses on the problem, it will find an alternative, but Ukraine will have to forget about Ukraine for a very long time.
            They have some kind of self-destructive strategy, but after all, this is integration into Europe --- if they are not completely bent, they will become the Airbus assembly shop. Everything according to Marx wassat

            Over the past 70 years, the legion fought in Algeria, Zaire, Lebanon, in the Persian Gulf, in Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Mali, I do not say anything about Iraq. But they are punishers or not punishers is a pretty controversial issue. This is from whose side to look. We also forced in Georgia. Both in Chechnya and in Syria.

    Seven of the eight military transports of the German Air Force are not ready for flight

    it is said that it is impossible to engage seven of the eight Airbus A400M military transporters during NATO training exercises.

      I live in the Republic of Belarus on Z. Dvina, so often I notice transport workers, sometimes one at a time, sometimes in pairs with an interval of half a minute, and once I saw how fighters worked on them to intercept them.

        And there and there you have to fly to different.
        Ursula rolled here with escort to Lithuania (to visit 130 Bundeswehr) on the brand new Airbus A400M, and had to fly back on the old S-160 Transall.
        The first flight was at the plane - and the engine refused.
        I hope she’s not going to visit us, otherwise she’ll probably be somewhere along the way and then they will rot us - “by the order of Putin, the only defense minister in the world is a gynecologist.”

        The fact of the matter is that only the Germans complain. In my opinion, they squeezed a "penny" of maintenance and such savings came to them sideways. Now, in order to restore the planned combat capability, you still have to fork out.

    Cancellations of orders [edit | edit wiki text]
    In May 2003, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Belgium and Luxembourg signed a joint agreement to purchase 212 A400M aircraft from EADS. Italy later withdrew from the project, and the number of aircraft that needed to be done was reduced to 180 [9].
    On July 18, 2005, the Chilean Air Force signed a memorandum of understanding for three aircraft to be delivered between 2018 and 2022. But the order was soon canceled. [10]
    In December 2004, South Africa announced its intention to acquire eight A400Ms for a total of about 800 million euros, when the country joins Airbus Military as an industrial partner. Deliveries were expected from 2010 to 2012. Then, on April 3, 2009, the South African Air Force announced that they would begin consideration of alternatives to the A400M due to production delays and rising costs. On November 5, 2009, the government announced the cancellation of the order, citing increased costs and delays in delivery.
    Accidents
    collapsed shortly after takeoff from an airfield in Seville (Spain); thrust fell sharply at once in three of the four engines. In the fall, the plane hit the power line, as a result of the disaster killed four of the six crew members.

    The history of A400 in general is mixed. In the West, it was previously believed that it was impossible to create an airplane with such characteristics. But then a joint (then still) Russian-Ukrainian An-70 was born. The Westerners looked at it, felt it and ... suggested that the Antonovites produce for the NEW European transport carrier (how quickly they decided to build!) A chassis and something else worthless ... The Antonovites, of course, refused. And Europeans quickly “blinded” this “miracle” in cooperation. Moreover, it later became clear that in terms of carrying capacity he was already losing to the Ukrainian (already became such) An-70. So heavenly punishment! ...

      They would start with the little things, although there is a beautiful aircraft that replaced the An-26 in the Kazakh army CASA C 295.
      Could create an aircraft with a carrying capacity of 20-40 tons. instead of the C-130 Hercules, of course there are "big capes." laughing

    German Minister of Defense Ursula von der Layen spoke on January 31, 2017 at a conference in Berlin on the place of sexual minorities in the armed forces of Germany. The conference was attended by more than 200 troops.

    In her speech, von der Layen demanded "a more open approach to sexual diversity among troops."
