Each designer or Design Bureau have special projects on which they reached peaks of excellence, and may have surpassed themselves. Antonov Design Bureau for such a project, without a doubt, was the creation of the plane an-124 “Ruslan”. Talking about this machine, continually use such epithets as “unique”, “having no analogues in the world, still unmatched. And indeed it is. Kiev aircraft manufacturers have created many excellent aircraft, but even in this series an-124 stands alone, because it really is unique.

At the moment the aircraft is the largest transport aircraft, produced serially. The aircraft has no analogues in the world for its size and payload. Antonov an-124 delivered 21 world record, among them the record for tonnage and distance record flight.

Antonov an-124 “Ruslan” is a heavy long-range transport aircraft, built primarily for military purposes. The aircraft can be safely called creatures of the cold war. In those years was going tough confrontation between the USSR and the United States. Aircraft industry was one of the key platforms of this fight. This is particularly true of transport aviation. War-it’s not only a soldier with a Kalashnikov at best, war is a daunting logistical operation. Troops need to secure all necessary and to do so promptly and in the shortest possible time. It should be noted that air freight transport are very costly affair. The cost of shipping cargo plane one kilogram is very high, more expensive only deliveries to space orbit. The most convenient mode of transport is marine, followed by rail and road. But on the war money did not consider, therefore, the military transport aviation is actively used during the conflict.

History of creation

In the year 1965 in Kiev, KB was created by Antonov heavy transport aircraft an-22 and the Soviet Union became the owner of the largest cargo aircraft in the world (it may be noted that the an-22 is still the biggest airplane with Turbo-propeller engine). But the triumph was shortlived: in the United States were under way over the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy, which was significantly more powerful Soviet aircraft. In the USSR it was decided to create an even heavier Merchant Navy ship. Soviet designers were tasked to create a plane carrying capacity 120-140 tons. The reasons for this decision were several: firstly, it was a question of prestige, and to such things in the Soviet Union were closely, and secondly, an increase in carrying capacity of military transport aircraft gave a measurable advantage in speed of deployment of troops and their supply.

Ukrainian aircraft manufacturers immediately engaged in work on the new aircraft, the benefit of developments in this direction. But the challenge facing them was very unusual: such aircraft still nobody and nowhere is built. You had to solve a lot of technical issues: from scratch to develop technology and build the hardware to work with parts and nodes of enormous size. In 1970-1971 years of antonovcy presented two draft drawings of aircraft, with four and six engines, with lifting capacity of 120 and 140 tonnes, respectively. And in 1973 year on these drawings was created by model airplane, in life-size. Dimensions of the new aircraft struck. To this model became a serial plane needed to improve virtually all technical characteristics of the machine.

A special group was established, it was engaged in improving the aerodynamics of the plane, its strength, security. Explored the use of in the future Antonov an-124 new materials and technologies. In this work, participated in the experts the best institutions and scientific centers of the USSR. The Antonov-124 can be called the Crown of the engineering-design thought of the former Soviet Union. When creating the plane was used by a variety of new materials and technologies, many of which had no analogues in the world. It is through this managed to create a machine with unique characteristics.

The first flight took place on December 24, 1982 year. In 1985, his first revealed Soviet journalists and then presented the world’s attention on aeronautical exhibition in Paris. In the same year, the an-124 delivered immediately 21 world record, including records of range and carrying capacity.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union the production of these machines gradually faded. The last aircraft was released at the Ulyanovsk aviation in 1995 year. In 1992, was created the modification an-124, a modified model airplane was named Al-124-100. In the car, removed the equipment designed for the landing, changed the radio navigation system in the cockpit there were new devices and the inscription in English, the crew were created additional facilities. Was also modernized cargo compartment. Modernization subjected and engines, which previously often provoked criticism.

In recent years, repeatedly attempts to resume full-scale production of this unique machine, because the demand for such cargo aircraft in the world market is very great. The cost of one machine is 70-100 million. dollars. But so far there are no results.
