4 Russian Flying Saucer

Russian Flying Saucer

Posted on July 18, 2013 by team


“Russian UFO” – here is how foreigners call an aerodynamic ground-effect craft “EKIP” which is based on a number of original engineering ideas. Among the main advantages of the flying amphibian vehicle are efficiency, an ability to overcome great distances with a big load aboard, environmental friendliness and safety. However the project has not been implemented yet due to the lack of funding.

“EKIP” does not resemble any other plane. Its appearance is unique. It has no wings cause “EKIP” is a wing itself. Disk-shaped fuselage functions like wings, the ship has much space inside due to the enlarged central part. It allows to increase capacity of fuel tanks and use special types of fuel. The authors of the project affirm that the vehicle can fly on natural gas, kerosene or on the saving mixture of water and gasolene.

    I could never see this as practical. Just one poor landing or hitting tree and millions in damage.
