The Direction Generale de l'Armement (DGA) received the aircraft bearing the serial number MSN10 on 25 July and transferred the aircraft to the Orleans-Bricy airbase on the same day, the MoD statement said.

This new tactical A400M aircraft manufactured by Airbus Defence and Space was certified in mid-May.
