Man, I really love ekranoplans. 

Something about the strangeness, something about the madness strikes a chord in me.

 

For anyone wondering what on earth this stuff is, just look up ground effect vehicles.

Heh, it's a Photoshop job. The wings and horizontal stabilisers are those of an F-14....

Not only that, you can't run an Ekranoplan in the ocean, you need smoother water. And any areas where you have appropriate surface conditions, is well within range of land-based aircraft.

Nobody's building that lol.

Nobody said anyone was building it, it was, however, not in this form, submitted as a potential design to the Russian Navy by Robert Bartini. I would also point out that the post was tagged as humor.

On the positive side, it means we still keep a juvenile spirit! ... What's my age again?
