Cloudsky and/or Kilcoo,

are the problems that we (the general public) are not aware off, larger then these humongous # ups from Airbus or are they smaller?

If it is the former (problem is larger then what has been leaked out) then the A400 is a nog go and should be terminated and other aircraft types need to be bought (AN-70 and such sort off vehicles)

If it is the latter (problem is smaller then what has been leaked out) then the entire program needs to be restarted with clear budgetary limits and strict specs and severe penalties for not staying on schedule.

Besides the engine control problems, there are problems with it not being able to complete all the required maneuvers, the wing area is too small, and it only holds 29 tons of cargo right now. I've also heard of a wing flutter issue.
