    The A400M has completed air to air refueling of helicopters. The flight tests were performed in coordination with the French Armament General Directorate (DGA) and involved operations with two French Air Force H225M helicopters. The H225M are also some of the few helicopters that can perform air to air refueling. As you can see from the photo the refueling was demonstrated by the drogue method. The A400M is certified as standard to be quickly configured as a tanker. Carrying up to 50.8 tonnes of fuel in its wings and centre wing box, without compromising any cargo hold area, two additional cargo hold tanks can also be installed, providing an additional 5.7 tonnes of fuel each. The separate cargo-hold tanks allows for the use of different types of fuel, enabling the A400M to cater for the needs of different types of receiver aircraft.
