Was the An-124 designed to replace the An-22? I was reading somewhere that it was.

From what I've read, the AN-124 was more of a direct response to the US designing/building the C-5A in the late 60s. With basically twice the payload capability of the An-22, the Russians needed to move forward with a comparable platform.

If you're into the Antonov cargo airplanes, here's an excellent book to add to your collection:

"Antonov's Heavy Transports: The An-22, An-124/225 and An-70" by Yefim Gordon, Dmitry and Sergy Komissarov.

Lots of details, photos, etc.

According to Bill Gunston the An-124 design was started as it was decided to stop An-22 production. But it's hardly a direct replacement.

Was the A400M designed to replace the Transall? The answer is up to you. There's no definite yes or no. What does it matter, anyway?
