    Note the word Super Galaxy. This Space Strategic military logistic Airlifter can land everywhere not only on our planet but on all planets in our sun system.

      “C-5 AMP and C-5M Super Galaxy

      New C-5 cockpit avionics, installed under the Avionics Modernization Program
      Following a study showing 80% of the C-5 airframe service life remaining,[100] Air Mobility Command (AMC) began an aggressive program to modernize all remaining C-5Bs and C-5Cs and many of the C-5As. The C-5 Avionics Modernization Program (AMP) began in 1998 and includes upgrading avionics to Global Air Traffic Management compliance, improving communications, new flat panel displays, improving navigation and safety equipment, and installing a new autopilot system. The first flight of a C-5 with AMP (85-0004) occurred on 21 December 2002.[101]

      The Reliability Enhancement and Re-engining Program (RERP) began in 2006. It includes new General Electric F138-GE-100 (CF6-80C2) engines, pylons and auxiliary power units, upgrades to aircraft skin and frame, landing gear, cockpit and pressurization systems.[45][102] Each CF6 engine produces 22% more thrust (50,000 lbf or 220 kN),[103] providing a 30% shorter takeoff, a 38% higher climb rate to initial altitude, an increased cargo load and a longer range.[specify][45][104] Upgraded C-5s are designated C-5M Super Galaxy”

    Not bad but the An-124 is better.

    • Justin

      ive seen quotes “Quantity is a quality all on its own” so many times on this site it makes my head spin! Especially when it suits their narrative!

      Does 131 US made (not ukraine made) get credit?

      • Lone Ranger

        I cant follow your logic.
        I simply stated the An-124 has slightly better design and performance.
        Ukrainians will tell you Antonov is a ukrop company.
        But reality is that it was created by a Russian, in Russia, and most the engineer team is still ethnic Russian.
        Company was moved from Siberia to Ukraine in the 50s, by Krustchev who was himself half Ukrainian and wanted to boost the Ukrainian economy, thats why he gave order to move many important Russian factories to Ukraine.
        You know what the full name of the plane is?
        Antonov-124 Ruslan.

            Take it with a grain of salt :)
            As the Romans would say.
            We disagree on a few things we agree on a few things.
            That aint bad ;)

          • Justin

            Youre a good sport!

            ;)

          • Lone Ranger

            You dont have to tell me but where are you from?
            Country, or continent, Im curious.
            Im from Hungary for example.

          • Justin

            Australia!

          • Lone Ranger

            Cool.:)
            Thanks.

          • occupybacon

            You are way too optimistic imo. I usually expect something like NATO fascists, Ukrop nazis, Zioanglo pedophiles *inserts map with smaller Ukraine during Tsars*, Americans are brain dead on opioids, more than half of USA are homeless beggers, Russia has free healthcare…

          • Justin

            Russian healthcare is pretty bad to be honest!
            yeah these people are predictable with their comments, they have absolutely no room for admiration for ANYTHING the US make! Even the internet they enjoy, im sure they make up some crap that its being used to spy on us, yet here they are using it and watching netflix lol

        • Justin

          yep i know the AN124 and its bigger 1 off brother!

          i love military equipment and have done my homework on US and Russian Hardware!

          Not too much on other nations besides WW2 error! i read a lot on that!

      IF I WROTEWhat a beautiful plane” i’ll get down voted!

      YET: if this was an IL76 and i wrote “What a beautiful plane” ill get up voted!

      The people on this site literally have their tongues inside China, Iran and Russia’s asshole!
      Is there ANY non biased people?

      YES u can hate america if that is what u want to do, BUT DOES ANYBODY APPRECIATE ANY HARDWARE THEY HAVE EVER MADE? or are u so far gone that u cant even bring yourself to appreciate any of it! WHAT about the internet? hate that too?

      • Kamīrusan

        I Get it and i’m sure Russian requirements have their downsides , and it’s a fact a lot of US weaponry have an Edge on Russian hardware, i’m Australian but i prefer Russian equipment more than western ones, but the hate for the US comes from a lot of places (the US isn’t helping itself with this one,Lies, invasions, sanctions, bombing, etc …) so anything US wil most likely get the brunt of the hate, i might be guilty of doing the same since i hate US foreign policy but that doesn’t mean i hate everything about it .

        This is mostly Pro-Rus site with a few trolls here and there so yes you’ll get up-voted if you dis anything made by the adversary , this is also true when it comes to Pro-US sites as well it’s just what you’d expect .
        Also nobody trusts China, Russia even has some of it’s iskandar Missiles pointing at it

        • Justin

          i was and still am Pro Russian and i too am from Australia!
          however things changed when Trump came to office!
          Things are different!
          And its nice to see what u say about China! i agree Russia doesnt like China either! i mean India just bought legally more Mig-29’s from Russia and SU-30MKI’s! You dont see India making a blatant COPY of Russian aircraft!
          Yet these MORONS on this site think China is friends with Russia lol.
          It’s very likely india goes to war with China if the USA does too! Russia is 100% not helping china against India especially when Russia just purchased India’s biggest Shipping port to build Russia’s new ships

      • Tommy Jensen

        I hate internet. Internet is unnecessay and replace the real wonderful world with a fake world.
        It take out too much time that should have been used to a social life with family and friends.

        But I admire the intelligent technology used behind Iphone (without surveillance).
        I must admit that collecting so many tools in a small rectangular box is impressing. Video, highsolution camera, phone, mail, sms, exchange of photos, etc. Its impressing.

        US is also making ok bikes. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b338deda468ce3cbb06e66abe907055228a32f0206f2f8f1f194534eabad5b6.jpg

          “OK bikes” lol.

        • Justin

          i hate tanks, its cheating!
          it replaces soldiers with machines and make a fake battle field.
          (yes im trolling for fun)
