    That would be a great idea, and the knowledge obtained from it can be used to retrofit other cargo aircraft, even light propeller aircraft that are sitting around doing nothing. I think A400M is robust enough to allow at least 4 hellfire missiles, a 40 mm cannon. Maybe even a small howitzer. Assistance from the U.S. could be sought.

    Yeap,..i want a howitzer on it. It would be very helpful against the PKK.

    Also, Airbus would assist us.http://militaryaircraft-airbusds.com...y/Special.aspx

    Nice! Looks like no one has yet armed their A400m Turkey could be the first and you could of course use Turkish made components.

    Yes it can but i dont think we will,we have other options.
    We can use the C-130 Hercules for that role if ever needed.

    We can even use CN-235s for that purpose.... there was a project like that in the past. But i don't know what happened later.

    Yes i had forgotten about the CN-235s,they are smaller and easier to convert.
