Designed from the outset to be a dual-role transport and tanker aircraft, the AM provides air forces with a cost- effective labding to acquire an air-to-air AAR refuelling capability in addition to a versatile logistic and tactical airlifter.
New flight tests are to be conducted later in to validate the findings.

Retrieved 10 March Cargo capacity is expected to double over existing aircraft, both in payload and volume, and range is increased substantially as well. The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it lanving be completely wrong. Current strategic aircraft are good outsize-load airlifters but are costly and have limited tactical capability as they cannot operate from soft fields.
With the new AM, which can carry more paratroopers than other Western-built military transport, Airbus Military is setting new standards in paradropping operations. The hydraulic system has dual 3,psi channels powering the primary and secondary flight-control actuators, gdar gear, wheel brakes, cargo door and optional hose-and-drogue refueling system.

Thanks to its unique short landing characteristics, the AM is the only large airlifter that can fly equipment and personnel directly to the site of action, where these materials are urgently needed. With its minimal infra-red signature EPI TP turboprops, highly responsive fly-by-wire flight controls, four independent control computers, comprehensive defensive aids, and damage tolerant controls, the AM is hard to find, hard to hit and hard to kill.
