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.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 25, 2008:
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).

Unfortunately its wings are toren off.

Can it fly?

A visitor from Denmark posted Mon June 5, 2006:
How did they ever think about this thing could fly, or something?

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 27, 2006:
That is sad

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 19, 2006:
Good Picture! That thing looks like it should be in the Starwars movies.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri March 10, 2006:
Reminds me of those "Eagle" space ships in the T.V. series "Space 1999". ;) T.B.

This plane is featured on Metal gear solid 3

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue September 6, 2005:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 22, 2005:
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?!?
