Jump to: navigation, search

The Airbus A400M Atlas (also known as the CC-176 Airmaster in the Canadian Forces), is a multi-national four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft. It was designed by Airbus Military as a tactical airlifter with strategic capabilities. The aircraft's maiden flight, originally planned for 1998, took place on December 11th, 1999 in Seville, Spain. Deliveries of the A400M began in late 2000.

As of July 2012 the A400M is undergoing flight testing. Orders totaled 230 aircraft from twelve nations as of January 2017. Airbus Military is expected to deliver the first aircraft in the second quarter of 2013. The A400M is powered by a set of four Pratt & Whitney Canada PW180 turboprops (the French use the Snecma TP400-D6)
