A400M makes spectacular defensive flares test

21 Jun 2013 By Craig Hoyle - FG


Airbus Military has performed a spectacular test with a key defensive system for its A400M, as its first production example comes within less than one month of delivery to the French air force.


Perfromed using a "Grizzly" development aircraft, the mass flare release was intended to prove the ability of the A400M's self-protection equipment to counter the threat posed by shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles during tactical operations.


The A400M's defensive aids system equipment is due to come online from the airlifter's SOC1 software standard.
