A400M tests assault capability

This shot from Airbus Military shows its A400M airlifter engaged in testing of its assault capability at RAF Boscombe Down in the UK. The photo shows a Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicle, and Land Rover with trailer exiting an A400M with its engines running to enable it to depart immediately. The technique is typically used to enable special forces to secure a bridgehead airfield so that large quantities of reinforcements and supplies can subsequently be delivered in safety.
