Anyhow, the US Air Force will not need new airlift in the next few years, so any market opportunity is a distant one ...
The only hard fact is that, as soon as the C17 production line is closed (next year), the A400M becomes the most capable military airlifter offered on the market, unless you take into account some shaky Ukrainian/Russian projects.
This seems to have been kept low-key. Did I miss this problem earlier?
So far this year France has received three examples of the Atlas and Turkey one, with the first deliveries to Germany and the UK imminent. Both France and the UK will receive a further two aircraft before year-end.
