Germany put pressure to Airbus 21 May, 2016

The German government pressed European airplane manufacturer Airbus to come up with a precise plan for resolving the problems that have repeatedly set back delivery of its new military transport, the A400M.  A spokesperson from German Defence Ministry said, "We urge the manufacturer to come up with a feasible and workable plan."

There are some new faults discovered in the aircraft's engines and cracks in its fuselage. The German army has ordered around 50 A400M to replace its aging fleet of C-160 Transall planes and It has taken delivery of three.
