The A400M Program From a Vendor's Standpoint

There's a most interesting article on the A400M that surfaced in Mining Weekly, A South African trade publication. It details the program from the standpoint of local firms that are tasked with crafting some large subassemblies for the big Airbus airlifter. Presumably the plants got the work because of the SAAF air force orders for the A400M.

By far the most interesting part of the article is the description of how the components will be streamed into Germany for assembly into a fuselage which will then be transported to Spain for final assembly, nose join, wing join and completion.
