Armed Forces: A400M

Volume 692: debated on Monday 4 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why they propose to procure aircraft such as the A400M without a full defensive aids suite fit.[HL3822]

We continuously review our requirements for defensive aid suites (DAS), taking into account operational roles, threat assessments, the technology available and industrial capacity. This includes keeping under review the scale of DAS procurement for the A400M aircraft, all of which will be “fitted for” DAS.
