Although the Airbus A380 that is mostly more than 800 people is currently the largest civil passenger plane, it is really not too big if the protagonist we introduced today.
As the product of the US Su Temple, An-225 can be said to be adhering to the spirit of the Soviet Union “you, I am more than you.”
At that time, in order to transport the relevant space parts and spaceplanes, the Soviets who have been excluded from 747-100, and the Soviets who have already -124 (take-off weights) are not satisfied, and the table said: “We have to do Out a bigger guy, compare Americans! “
So, the Antonov Design Bureau broke the body and wings exhibition of An-124, and increased the D-18T high David Dragoni Vortex engine for the two progressive design borsses, as well as redesigned double-end tail, after 1988 In the Kiev Machinery Factory, an enlarged version of An-124 was born.
Although the authorities claim to produce one, only one An-225 transport plane in the world, but there is also an A -225 test machine before this plane, compared with the brothers currently served. Its destiny is miserable: after the dismantling, lying quietly in the warehouse as a spare part.
One .32 wheels, carry 640 tons of weight
An-225, once debuted, broke the 110 world records, perfect interpretation of what is called “big plane” – the maximum takeoff weight reached an amazing 640 tons, the maximum cargo weight is 250 tons, and the landing gear has 32 rounds, etc. Wait……
2. The body is 84 meters long, 11 meters longer than the A380
In order to more intuitively reflect the absolute advantage in the volume of Dian-225, we compare the three-dimensional size of Boeing 747 and Airbus A380:
Although An-225 has a 905 square meter wing area than the US H-4 strong god, it is small, but the latter is not surprising.
3.140.5 tons of thrust, there are 6 engines
In order to send this phenomenon to the sky, An-225 has 6 D-18T engines, with a single thrust to 23.4 tons. 6 engines can produce a total thrust of about 140.5 tons when the plane takes off.
4.1300 cubic molt, 250 tons maximum weight
On the cargo space, An 225 has up to 1300 cubic warehouse, although more than 1400 cubic meters of the Airbus Beluga big white whale before we have introduced, but if it is 250 tons of cargo capacity, “big white 47 tons of whales seem to have a bit.
In 2013, the “Xianglong” modern-track tram developed by the North Car in Turkey was transported with An 225.
5. Typical “Oil Tiger”, 300 Tons Fuel Space
In order to make the far-range flight mode, An-225 can carry 300 tons of fuel once, after the oil is filled, it can reach 15,400 kilometers. If you add 200 tons of cargo, you can fly up to 4,000 kilometers.
6. Interior style, typical former Soviet Union
Since this global maximum transportation bore was born in the late 1980s, it still retains the largest characteristics of the plane in the interior style: Mechanical + simple (rough) style.
It is worth mentioning that different from other transporters in the world, the warehouse of the An-225 transport plane is pressurized when flying, in other words, the warehouse can also be manned. “Antonov 500” in the movie “2012” is actually An-225.
When the start and drop speed is 240-280 kilometers / hour, the cruise speed is 850 km / hour.

With the disintegration of the former Soviet Union, this existing An-225 is attributed to Ukraine, and is still providing large-scale transportation services in a global scale. Although in the near future, it will gradually be hosted and broken with the continuous development of technology, but it is believed that it is in many people’s world’s largest aircraft image. Time changes change.
