Airbus Beluga XL Interior, Capacity, Cockpit, Specs, and Price – Airbus Beluga offers a unique way to transport large air cargo by displaying one of the most cargo spaces of all civilian or military aircraft flying today. Beluga also known as Super Transporter A300-600ST, the five Beluga air transportation companies in the company play a key role in maintaining production and assembly lines operating at full capacity with overall fleet operating rates growing to support increased production. The large capacity of Airbus air transportation will be further strengthened by the new generation Beluga A330 based on the Beluga XL family, which was launched in November 2014.

Airbus Beluga XL (Airbus A330-743L) is a large transport aircraft which began operations in 2019. The aircraft is based on the A330 aircraft, to become the successor of Airbus Beluga. XL has extensions on the top of aircraft such as Beluga. This is being designed, built and will be operated by Airbus to move large aircraft components. This aircraft made its first flight on July 19, 2018.

Still think they need to build 5 more AN-225's.

The world doesn't need many airplanes that can carry that much... but when you need to fly some serious tonnage - Mriya is the only way to fly now, since there's only ONE AN-225.

I'm sure a few demilitarized C-5's would be useful...

Apparently Antonov has received funds from China to complete the long-delayed second AN-225- [en.wikipedia.org]

That top one is the granddaddy of them all. Essentially a B-29 bomber the was modified to an airliner which in turn was modified to an outsize cargo aircraft. The Dreamlifter pictured below it is more of a contemporary.
