The seven partner nations of the Airbus A400M military transport plane will sign the final contract for the financing of the project tomorrow, Airbus Military said Wednesday.

Airbus Military's parent company EADS had threatened to pull the plug on Europe's biggest defence project unless the nations stumped up more cash to cover cost overruns of about 5.2 billion euros ($7.0 billion).
