      the only thing I can say about this plane is that it’s probably in the “office”, all sorts of hooks, drawers, glove compartments, retractable “gloves”, and other crap, for lipstick and powder. and .. yes, under the shoes under the seat. yes

    Where do they need so much? To carry the "Foreign Legion" to their former colonies?

        Why be surprised. There was a Wishlist for joint production with a geyropa, the documentation for the usu was handed over to the "partners" and !!! The "partners" have a plane, and dill is all in guano.
        Now they want to do MRII with zholtolitsy "brothers" ... what will be the result?
        In principle, this is the property of the whole people, but for some reason again, the soldiers will fall into one specific pocket!

            The plane turned out and really good. Several KB worked on it at once, ours too. That's what joint work / creativity does! The brainchild turned out necessary and successful in all respects!

        It seemed to me, if lower, according to reports, someone doubted the "roots" of the A400M ... we couldn’t directly rub it, we borrowed it in a friendly, gay-tolerant way ??? But they didn’t have anything similar, with similar performance characteristics. Hands, heads, money invested, re-equipped re-equipped according to their standards, tail wheels made in their own way !!! but they saved a lot of money on the prepared one, and left the dill with ... a nose!

        maybe I'm confusing something, but they both belong to the "military transport aircraft plane." and yes, nothing to do with it.

          And 400 and others like it, like the dill An-70, or S-130 can land and start from the field, they need no more than a couple of hundred meters to take off and land. And Il needs 3 km of GDP.

    Even somehow I can’t believe that this A-400 was finally brought to mind. So many missed with him.

      They brought it to a long time ago, but not a single project has braked the bureaucratic-checking apparatus of the FRG. Therefore, the final acceptance of the A-400M was done in Spain.
