  A400M Countdown #2 - A PROGRESS REPORT FROM AIRBUS MILITARY
Airbus Military successfully achieved its fifth contractual milestone with the complete A400M engine and propeller run at the end of February 2006.
A series of test runs of the engine with propeller was conducted culminating on 28 February 2006 with a ceremony organised by the engine and propeller suppliers Europrop International and Ratier Figeac at the Snecma test facility in Istres in the south of France.
The A400M engine with propeller run was the most spectacular event yet in the on-going aircraft development programme.

 Airbus Aircraft Families - A400M
The A400M airlifter is a cost-effective, high-speed turboprop aircraft specifically designed to meet the harmonised needs of European NATO nations and which equally fulfils the requirements of other air forces around the world.
The A400M is, of course, intended for the rigours of the military transport role, with all that this entails.
The A400M is scheduled to first fly in 2008 and enter into service in 2009.

  FlightSim.Com Review: Airbus A400M
The spec is certainly ambitious, given that a new hull, using new engines is being developed to lift over 80,000 pounds and deliver it nearly 1800 nautical miles away.
One of the curses of moving up a generation of FS is that developers of complex addons often end up breaking the rules set by Microsoft to squeeze the last ounce of performance out of a package and this can lead to trouble.
If you are a military simmer looking for something a little different to pass the time until FSX comes along, this could be it, though do be aware that at the time of reviewing much of what you see in the addon is speculative.

  Science Fair Projects - Airbus A400M
The Airbus A400M (M for military) is a four engine turboprop aircraft designed by Airbus Military to meet the demand of European nations for a new military cargo aircraft.
The Airbus A400M is set to replace primarily the C-130 Hercules which has been the primary cargo workhorse in the countries now planning this new aircraft.
Just as Airbus' other aircraft, the A400M will have a full glass cockpit (all information accessed through large color screens) and fly-by-wire and as such will represent a technological leap compared to the old versions of the C-130 Hercules and Transall C-160 that many of the purchasing countries now operate.

 Airbus A400M military transporter.   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The A400M program is a direct result of a commonly expressed need by 8 European air forces for a new generation military airlifter.
The Airbus A400M will play an essential role in enhancing Europe's airlift capabilities, whilst enabling the establishment of common support, training and operational procedures and greater interoperability in multi-national humanitarian and peace-keeping missions.
The flight envelope of the A400M allows it to refuel a wide range of aircraft and helicopters, at the altitudes appropriate to their missions.

 FLUG REVUE Aircraft Gallery: Airbus Military A400M
Earlier in the A400M programme, the Aero Propulsion Alliance, a European consortium formed by Fiat Avio (8 %), ITP (13,6 %), MTU (24,8 %), Rolls-Royce (24,8 %), Snecma (24,8 %) and Techspace Aero (4 %) was choosen to supply the TP400.
As Airbus Military was unhappy with the contractual details of the TP400 engine it had choosen earlier, it issued a new request for proposals in April 2002.
The final launch of the A400M programme came on 27 May 2003, when a contract was signed in Bonn between Airbus Military and the multinational armaments agency OCCAR (Organisation Conjointe de Cooperation en Matiere d´Armement).

 Airbus at AllExperts
The name "Airbus" was taken from a non-proprietary term used by the airline industry in the 1960s to refer to a commercial aircraft of a certain size and range, for this term was acceptable to the French linguistically.
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 argues that the pork barrel military contracts awarded to Boeing (the second largest U.S. defence contractor) are in effect a form of subsidy (see the Boeing KC-767 military contracting controversy).

 Airbus A400M
The Airbus A400M (M for military) is a four engine turbo-prop aircraft designed by Airbus to meet the demand of a new military cargo lifter posed by France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Belgium and Luxemburg.
The Airbus A400M is set to replace primarily the C-130 Hercules which has been the primary cargo workhorse in the countries now planning this new aircraft.
When completed, the Airbus A400M will be Airbus' first military aircraft and as such will be a sign of Europe's larger focus on purchasing military equipment from European manufacturers as opposed to American.

 Avionics Magazine :: Airbus A400M
The A400M claims a range of 2,450 nautical miles (nm) for a load of 30 tonnes (67,200 pounds) and 3,550 nm for a load of 20 tonnes (44,800 pounds).
The A400M also will be capable of reconfiguration as a tanker with two refueling points on the wings and one system in the rear of the cargo area, called the hose drum unit (HDU).
The A400M is expected to use the same type of 6-by-8-inch LCD displays supplied by Thales Avionics to the A380, employing the ARINC 661 protocol to standardize interactivity management and the same electronic centralized aircraft monitoring (ECAM) system.
