...looks like the "Acronoplan" (sp) which flies in ground-effect over the water...
the Ekrano-plane. A wing in ground effect vehicle. Not really an airplane or a boat. It floated on the shock wave created by the short wings with a maximum altitude of only 200 feet or so. But, it could haul a division of troops or several tanks. The six launch tubes on the top carried the SAN-3 cruise missile. It was quite a threat in the 60's and 70's but by the 1980's they had fallen out of use and basically left to rot wherever they were parked.
The intelligence community called it "the Caspian Sea Monster". Never found elsewhere. An interesting concept that could be very useful for over-ocean transport or amphibious assault.
I recall reading the ship couldn't cruise high enough to tolerate open ocean wave heights, so only good on inland lakes and in relatively good weather.

And people were shocked that the USSR collapsed. If we were an intelligent species, we'd be asking why the collapse took so long.
Because we know now our intelligence agencies were working to collapse our government?
RE: "...we'd be asking why the collapse took so long." KarlAnswered long ago by Anthony C. Sutton. Search for his books, some academic & some popular. Here is a FREE pdf of one popular book on the theme of proping up of the communists by the West: The Best Enemy Money Can Buy. http://www.lovethetruth.com/books/antony_sutton/the_best_enemy_money_can_buy.pdfDan Kurt
