Facts and Figures

The A400M “Atlas” is a new military airlifter designed to meet the needs of the world's armed forces in the 21st Century. Thanks to its advanced technologies, it is able to fly higher, faster and further than comparing props, while retaining high maneuverability, low speed and the capability to act from even rough airstrips.
It combines both tactical- and strategic missions. With its cargo hold specifically designed to carry also outsize equipment needed today for both military and humanitarian disaster relief missions, it can bring this material quickly and directly to where it is most needed.
Conceived to be reliable and with great survivability, the multipurpose A400M can do more with less, implying smaller fleets and therewith less investment from the operator. The aircraft is cost efficient and versatile, the right successor for the Transall-fleets of the German and French Air Force. The EATC looks forward to welcome the new aircraft using within also Airbus A380 technologies, making the EATC assets even smarter for the future missions to come.
