I have a question:

Why in the missions are used only Russian aircrafts like the AN-12 and the AN-22? I'm not saying that I do not like them, but I want to know why you don't use more aircrafts like the C-17, the C-5, the A-400M or others? Just a curiosity, nothing else.

I imagine it is because it is a faily new project. Time is needed to get aircraft developed, tested, debugged, and the released. I just recieved a working development SCA 747 that another developer has put much work into, it will take some time to devise a plan to coincide with the different shuttles being developed. I, personaly, don't expect to see anything definitive until the end of summer this year, that is just my best guess. I would assume the Russian aircraft were used because that is what the developer had readily available that he/she could work with at the time.
