Russia Shows Wind Tunnel Model Of An “Elephant” Airlifter Replacement For The An-124

Russia has revealed a wind tunnel model for a prospective heavy cargo aircraft, dubbed the “Elephant,” to replace the Soviet-era An-124 Ruslan, or Condor. Curiously, the Elephant’s design appears to be significantly different from previous models and artwork of the Ilyushin Il-106, which that company had said earlier this year was already in development to replace the Ruslans.
