No, tis one was never intended to be an ekranoplan - it was intended as a VTOL. It has four engines - two of them were situated on its back.

Have seen photos in a Red Star profile of ekranoplans of this thing in two separate configurations: with inflatable floats, and with solid floats. I think it had ten engines (some mounted vertically).

How did they ever think about this thing could fly, or something?

Good Picture! That thing looks like it should be in the Starwars movies.

Reminds me of those "Eagle" space ships in the T.V. series "Space 1999". ;) T.B.

This 'airplane' was built for searching and destroying submarines in the time of the Cold War.
Believe it or not,an Italian designer made it together with the Russians.

I really like pictures of unusual aircraft. The Russians have built some of my favorites, and this is one of the strangest I have seen yet. Could it be somehow related to their Ekranoplan?!?
