Well, yeah, but this is the first time where I see people arguing for ridiculously heavy weights and my lighter weight being dismissed due to logic, lol.

I'll just point out, gents, that logically, given the smaller wing area on TSFs, to achieve lift and flight while weighing 100 tons would be nigh-on impossible.

"But Goose, we have planes that weigh 250 tons!"

Yes, and those planes have massive wing area that generates a crapton more lift.

At the end of the day, however, this is trivia - TSFs weigh as much as they need to. Nobody will actually really need the exact weight of a TSF.
