A single turreted, fully-armoured AJAX vehicle can be flown in a C-17 with minimal preparation. Two Ajax variant vehicles can be transported in a C-17, after further suitable preparation.

It is intended that all Ajax variants will be capable of air transportation in an A400M aircraft with some level of strip. Stripped items would be transported separately. Four stripped-down Ajax variant vehicles would be transported in four A400M aircraft and the stripped items in a further two A400M aircraft.
