Also known as the zero-one-four, the C-5A Galaxy was an outsized-cargo military transport aircraft that provides inter-theater airlift support. It is considered one of the largest aircraft in the world, but it has the capability to take off and land in relatively short distances. The C-5A Galaxy holds the responsibility of carrying and transporting nearly all of the US Army's combat equipment, even carrying the 74-ton mobile scissors bridge. It is famous for being able to carry the heaviest of cargo at jet speeds. This military transport aircraft is self-sufficient, equipped with a sophisticated communications system and triple inertial navigations system. This enables the C-5A Galaxy to operate even without the assistance of ground-based navigational aids.
