Russian Ekranoplanes at rest

We wrote about Russian “Ekranoplanes” here.
Here is one of them caught on the rest, maybe that’s his last stop so on eternal rest.
There is also a submarine on the last photo. Is it watching so nobody disturbed them?

  2. OMG Russians are so poor that they can’t afford normal Boeings that we have in the west and have to build planes on their own :-(

    I thought the idea of GEV was generally abandoned by early 70s as unproductive loss of money??

    The last photo is not a real submarine, it’s a fake made by some artists and it’s in Moscow river not so far from Kremlin

  15. Boyce Williams says:

    So that’s what those things actually looked like. During my technical training at Sheppard AFB, TX in 1975, my flight was given a briefing of Soviet intentions to dominate the world. In that briefing we were shown a drawing of the jet-powered version of the plane and told what the CIA estimates its abilitiy was. The CIA believed the “Capisan Sea Monster” (because they didn’t know what it was called) was able to carry tanks across the Atlantic Ocean at high speed to invade the USA. Since it was a drawing I always thought it was a myth until now with these photos. The plane may be going to a park now but it did kept Americans up at night.
