Airbus Defence and Space on Thursday 22 January released the first picture of the very first Royal Malaysian Air Force (or Tentera Udara DiRaja Malaysia (TUDM) in Malaysian) Airbus A400M in full colours. The aircraft will be delivered in the first quarter of 2015, followed by two more later in the year and the fourth and final aircraft in 2016.
Malaysia is to be the fifth country operating the A400M. Other operators are France, Turkey, Germany and the UK. Truth is, so far all air forces seem to be using the same colour scheme for their aircraft, with the difference being the flag on the tail.
