Airbus Industrie began as a consortium of European aviation firms to compete with American companies such as Boeing.
In January 1999 Airbus established a separate company, Airbus Military S.A.S, to undertake development and production of a turboprop powered military transport aircraft (the Airbus Military A400M.) The A400M is being developed by several NATO members, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Turkey, and the UK, as an alternative to the C-130 Hercules.
Airbus does receive considerable support, in the form of loans from European governments that it does not have to repay if it makes no profit on an airplane (the case never happened), but contends that this is fully compliant with the 1992 agreement and WTO rules.
