9th December 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The French defence procurement agency, DGA, has selected Safran to supply an air delivery system capable of releasing heavy loads from the A400M military transport aircraft.

The company has received a contract for 200 side door release systems and 160 gravity release systems. The systems can drop loads of between 320kg and four metric tons, depending on configuration.

The new cargo drop system was designed for the new A400M airlifter, and will replace systems now in service which date back to the 1960s.
