The Luftwaffe followed the French Air Force, Turkish Air Force, Royal Malaysian Air Force and Royal Air Force in inducting the Airbus A400M four-turboprop transport into operational service. Its first A400M unit is Lufttransportgeschwader (Air Transport Wing) 62 at Wunstorf near Hannover, which is the unit sending an example to RIAT 2019. Training activities are going on there as the fleet builds, Germany having ordered 53 A400Ms for tactical and logistics transport duties. All the operational examples will be concentrated at Wunstorf. The new airlifter is replacing the Transall C-160D.
