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.
Ministers from the A400M Partner Nations had a productive meeting with industry. We discussed the progress and the next steps on the A400M Programme which is already delivering much welcomed initial operational capability to several of the Partner Nations' Air Forces.
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.
