Our Support on the A400M Atlas

Airbus Defense and Space has achieved a significant aerial refueling milestone by successfully demonstrating the first ever A400M tanker to A400M receiver contact using Cobham's 808E Hose Drum Unit installed in the aircrafts fuselage.  The 808E Hose Drum Unit represents the most advanced refueling system in production today, providing a stable platform for refueling larger aircraft, an exceptional flow rate capability and extended hose length.

The A400M also features two Cobham wing mounted 908E pods which as well as sharing many of the same benefits as the 808E provide the aircraft with multi-point refueling capability.
