Canada should have looked at a split order of C-130js and some A400M as the A400M could have been a great SAR/smaller tactical airlift aircraft for the forces.

Three types (C-17,C-130J and A400M) with maybe 30 frames in the fleet? I don't think you can communicate that very well ... would be a nice gesture though.
|Quoting KrisYYZ (Reply 8):|
he A400M would have been a great asset to the CAF, but Canada needs new tactical airlift aircraft ASAP and Airbus couldn't meet the delivery schedule set by DND. Canada still may look at the A400M in the future as the current C130J proposal will only replace 15 or so out of the 32 C-130s Canada operates.
