2015-02-22 According to a story on the French Air Force website, the Atlas A400M flew to the United Arab Emirates to deliver cargo to the French military.
The A400M demonstrates a bit more each day its extraordinary capacity for projection.
It can fulfill this type of mission without stoping over in the course of the mission as is necessary with the Transall C-160 or the Hercules C-130.
It has been deployed on several occasions during operations and it supports the armed forces engaged in external theaters of operations and can both ease logistical flows of supplies while providing cost savings operationally.
