I was just reading about large planes on Wikipedia, and I was wondering why military and civilian plans are almost always different designs. For example, the Boeing 747 was built after Boeing lost a military bid to the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy. PanAm convinced Boeing to modify the design as a commercial airliner, but the effort almost bankrupted Boeing. But the C-5 is even bigger than the 747. Why did not you lock it up and make it change it? C-5 as a civilian aircraft.Same goes with the Antonov An-225. Why does not Antonov market the An-225 as a giant passenger aircraft - surely they could hugely undercut Airbus and it's multi trillion dollar investment in the brand new A-380? I guess there's a reason, but it was wondering what it was. Basically, why is there almost no crossover between very large military aircraft and similar.
I did not find the right solution from the Internet.
