An 124-100 – the air cargo heavyweight champion

An-124-100 ‘Ruslan’ – world’s largest freighters for outsize and heavyweight cargo

The Antonov-124-100 is the world’s largest civil cargo aircraft, and an acknowledged leader of the air cargo market for the transportation of oversized and super-heavy shipments.

The combination of exceptional characteristics such as its cargo compartment size, flight range and uplift capability without using special loading equipment allows the An-124 to carry super-heavy and oversized cargo up to 120 tonnes (aboard An-124-100) and 150 tonnes (aboard Ay-124-150) across the greatest range.

The aircraft’s pressurized cargo cabin, with its total volume of 1,050 m³, guarantees unprecedented opportunities for the transportation of different types of cargo, including non-standard and oversized pieces or shipments demanding special transportation conditions.

Multi-leg landing gears equipped with 24 wheels allow to change the angle of the fuselage to simplify loading operations.

The Antonov-124-100 has two cargo doors, at the nose and tail of the aircraft, both equipped with expanding loading ramps. For loading of non-standard cargo the cabin is equipped with two electric winches of 3 tonnes traction each and 4 electric hoists of common carrying capacity up to 30 tonnes.
