Airbus Tuesday ordered engine software checks on the A400M military aircraft following the recent fatal crash of Europe's new troop and cargo carrier.The request comes after the discovery of a potential anomaly in the system running the plane's turboprop engines.Airbus said it had issued an alert asking air forces to examine the plane's "Electronic Control Unit".The Airbus A400M was developed at a cost of 20 billion euros, marking Europe's largest defense project.Problems in developing the engines, and particularly in certifying the engine control software, contributed to three years of delays and a new cash injection by governments in 2010 .
