Amazing Flying Maneuvers Antonov AN 178 vs Airbus A400M ✦ Takeoffs ASAF C17 ANTONOV AN 225 Mriya
Airbus A400M Atlas
The Airbus A400M Atlas is a four-engine turboprop transport aircraft.
The cargo box of A400M Atlas is 17.71 m long excluding ramp, 4.00 m wide, and 3.85 m high (or 4.00 m aft of the wing .
It features a fly-by-wire flight control system with side stick controllers and flight envelope protection. Like other Airbus aircraft, the A400M has a full glass cockpit.
The A400M’s wings are primarily carbon fibre reinforced plastic. The Ratier-Figeac FH385 propellers turn counterclockwise and FH386 clockwise.
The eight-bladed scimitar propellers are made from a woven composite material. The aircraft is powered by four Europrop TP400-D6 engines rated at 8,250 kW (11,000 hp) each.
The TP400-D6 engine is to be the most powerful turboprop engine in the West to enter operational use
The pair of propellers on each wing of the A400M turn in opposite directions, with the tips of the propellers advancing from above towards the midpoint between the two engines. This is in contrast to the overwhelming majority of multi-engine propeller driven aircraft where all propellers turn in the same direction.
The Antonov An-178 is a short-range medium-airlift military transport aircraft with moderately swept wing, winglets and a T-tail .
The aircraft use two Progress D-436-148FM engines. The flight control system is dual duplex fly-by-wire system, consisting of two parts: FCS-A and FCS-B, each of which is responsible for two control channels.
It can shift 18 tonnes over 1,000 km, or 10 tonnes over 4,000 km
