Just Flight announces A400M Airlifter

The A400M has been built to the specifications of the Belgium, French, German, Luxembourg, Royal Air Force and Turkish Air Forces and is due to go into service with several other air forces. The A400M combines high cruise speed with fast transit times as well as good short and soft field performance. Equipped with four high-speed turboprop engines, it features a cargo capacity of 37 tons that can be carried over 3,550nm at a maximum cruise speed of mach 0.72. The A400M design allows the aircraft to operate in areas with minimal infrastructure and on short/unpaved runways. 180 A400M have already been ordered.
