At Christmas, the 100th aerial refueling mission of an A400M during Operation Counter Daesh was flown in the Middle East.

The A400M's versatility in the tanker, tactical and logistical roles proved useful after the recent events in Iraq, when the German aircraft (54+22) that was on location in Al Azraq/Jordan as aerial refueller for fast jets, evacuated 32 German soldiers from Taji/Iraq and took them back to Germany.

According to one of the pilots, the night-time evacuation from Taji took place in a threat situation, and they landed after a fast and steep approach. The aircraft didn't spend more than nine minutes on the ground to collect 32 soldiers before it took off again to Al Azraq. The same aircraft has returned to Germany with the soldiers temporarily evacuated from Iraq.
