It's been discussed before, but MTOW of An-225 will still be considerably larger than that of 388 and 389.

If you read airways magazine it has a story on the 225 and compares it to the A380, 747 and some military thing. Anyway, the Antonov 225 I think was the one that could hold the most cargo because its numbers were larger then everybody elses except for one in which I cannot remember. But I think the 225 has more cargo.

Don't think so.

AN-225: 600 tons MTOW
A380-800F: 590 tons MTOW

i THINK that the MTOW is determined by the weight of the airplane. the AN225 was desiged to be a cargo a/c so it SHULD be able to carry more cargo than the A380 which should be hevier. also the A380 lacks the front door limiting its cargo.
