12th A400M At­las de­liv­ered to French Air Force


The French Di­rec­torate Gen­eral of Ar­ma­ment (DGA) on Novem­ber 22, 2017, took de­liv­ery of the twelfth A400M At­las mil­i­tary trans­port air­craft for the French Air Force. The air­craft car­ries the se­rial num­ber MSN62.

Beyond the tac­ti­cal and lo­gis­ti­cal ca­pa­bil­i­ties of its pre­de­ces­sors, this air­craft is the first to be equipped with two pods for re­fu­el­ing air­craft in flight. Other air­craft in the fleet will be pro­gres­sively equipped with this ca­pa­bil­ity. The MSN 62 will fly to its home base at Or­léans-Bricy air­base in the com­ing days.
