  • Comparison of the Antonov An-70 Medium-Lift Military Transport Aircraft and the Airbus Military A400M Atlas Long Range Transport / In-Flight Refueler.



    Your comparison results are listed below, otherwise Compare Two Other Aircraft. A reported value of "0" appearing in some fields below reflects that the value is not available (NA). Rotary-wing (Helicopter) systems have their width based on the overall diameter of their main rotor blade. UAV entries may display their crew value as "0", not taking into account their ground-based pilots. Note the material presented below is for historical and entertainment value and should not to be construed as usable for hardware restoration, maintenance or general operation.

    RELATIVE SIZE COMPARISON
    *Shapes above depict aircraft from wingtip-to-wingtip and nose-to-tail assuming aircraft are being viewed from overhead perspective (the nose pointing upwards to the top of your screen). Helicopter widths are the overall rotor diameter. If any dimensional values showcased above as "NA", then the presented shapes will appear skewed.
