Thanks a lot, my russian friend,it is particularly rare to find information on aircraft like this one unless you have lived in eastern countries. From Bulgaria - Thank you!

This craft wasn't designed as ekranoplane - it was intended to be a VTOL craft. Presence of a strong ground effect on this plane was discovered during test flights - it was a really hard task to make this bird touch the strip!

The soviet ekranoplanes (eng. "GEM" - ground effect machine) were all designed and built at the "Volga" experimental shipyards (Yes, they were considered as a ships!) by Rostislav Alexeev.

You should correct your remark to Anti-submarine Spaceship look alike. :)

These Ekrano-planes, either you love them or you hate them. I love them! Only airframe left, must be fantastic to see in real life! Great picture!
