A400M re-deploys TIGER back from Africa
Operational premiere: On 12 April, a French TIGER HAP helicopter of the 5th Combat Helicopter Regiment was transferred in an A400M from Gao (Mali) back to its home base in Pau (France). The complete helicopter transport was performed within 24 hours, including a stop in Niamey (Niger).
This transport mission is a excellent example of operational interaction between capabilities provided by OCCAR.
