The Russian Tank-Ship-Plane

Ekranoplan Casspian The Russian Tank-Ship-Plane. Not exactly a plane but still cool. It flies just over the water because of ground effect. So it can haul a heavy load very efficiently compared to getting it up to altitude. Or floating. It was thought that it could carry troops, and tanks across large bodies of water. Such as the black sea, or the Caspian to go against NATO if an attack had come.
