The Airbus A400M Atlas is a medium lift military cargo aircraft powered by four Europrop International (EPI) TP400-D6 engines. Airbus markets the A400M as a multi-role tanker-transport capable of carrying more than the Lockheed Martin C-130J yet still being able to operate from austere runways as a tactical transport. The aircraft can transport loads up to 37 tons or 81,571 lbs. The Atlas also be quickly reconfigured to act as an aerial refueling aircraft with the addition of two hose and drogue under-wing refueling pods as well as a centerline hose and drum unit. As of November 2021, a total of 103 aircraft were in service across Europe and Asia.
