A defensive aids suite can comprise one or a combination of the following:
Directional Infra-Red Counter Measures
Missile Approach Warning Systems
Radar Warning Receiver
Countermeasures Dispensing System
Large Aircraft Infra-Red Counter Measures
Defensive counter-measures are under constant development in response to emerging threats.
I am withholding information on the precise combination on defensive aids that will be employed on the A400M so as not to prejudice the security of our armed forces.
