The concept is as ambitious as it is improbable. Inside, Russia wants it to fit at least seven future tanks (also still in development), and then carry them through the sky at supersonic speeds of over 1200 mph to destinations up to 4000 miles away. That's a speed unheard of for transports, and surpassed only by fighter jets. The F-22 Raptor, America's fighter, maxes out at around 1500 mph. The C-5M Super Galaxy, America's largest military transport plane, tops out at 518 mph. The PAK TA's planned 200-ton capacity will enable it to carry one or two more tanks than the Super Galaxy, with the full planned fleet of 80 PAK TA's capable of lifting at least 400 tanks to anywhere with a runway that can accommodate 80 gigantic cargo planes.
