Following the recent successful conclusion to Global Rebaselining of the A400M Programme, another significant milestone was achieved, on 28 June, with the signature of the Global Support Step 2 contract between OCCAR-EA, on behalf of the A400M Participating States, and AMSL.
In June 2016, the A400M Programme made a further key step regarding its paratrooper delivery capability. From 13 to 24 June, a test campaign was organised with Airbus Defense and Space in South-West France to clear static line jump operations of paratroopers.
On 24 July 2014, the A400M MSN10 (4th A400M production aircraft and 3rd of France in service) was delivered. It is the fourth operational Aircraft with additional capabilities compared to the three previous ones such as fuel inserting system and improvements in the cargo systems and avionics.
