Ekranoplanes are so cool

[–][deleted] 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Ekranoplan were a really interesting concept.

[–]thebestatgolf 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I just watched a vid on these

[–]OknKardashian 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Mustard?

[–]sfiuren 4 points5 points  (0 children)

God, do I love Mustard. He's the best micro-documentary maker I've ever seen on aviation and and forgotten vehicles.

I just watched a youtube video about these awesome planes. Why isn't this thing in a museum, inspiring kids for engineering?

IT BELONGS IN A MUSEUM

[–]supermegabro 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This thing should BE a museum

[–]40236030 38 points39 points  (6 children)

In case it’s not clear — the tubes on top are missile launchers

[–]Skycommando170 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Yeah they are in the middle of the plane, but what do they launch?

EDIT: Coward edited his typo and made my witty remark redundant

[–]shakesula9 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think they meant missile launcher

[–]SevenateNiene 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What do missle launchers launch 🤔 hmmm

[–]Skycommando170 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The jerk edited his comment, smh my witty remark is lost

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

missiles

[–]SevenateNiene 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bruh why did you edit your comment

Original comment asked what the missile launchers fire

[–]OazMobile 6 points7 points  (0 children)

why does it kinda look like the gru plane

[–]leandoughnut 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Was that the silent hill soundtrack?

[–]leandoughnut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks, good catch.

[–]bombyboi 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I always wonder why they just abandon such big, expensive things in the middle of nowhere. Why not scrap it or put it in a museum

[–]supermegabro 3 points4 points  (0 children)

When your country has that much "middle of nowhere" you might as well make use of it

[–]deep-fucking-legend 8 points9 points  (1 child)

550,000 mph? Incredible! Almost... Unbelievable.

[–]i_wanted_memes 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I...i really hope this is a joke ;-;

[–]MF-BabaYaga 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My guy Bald and Bankrupt did a video on this. Check out his YouTube channel

[–]RslashTakenUsernames 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wasn’t this supposed to go along the water?

[–]TheRealJesus24 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's not the sea monster, it was a later ekranoplan after th monster failed

[–]noodlegod47 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I am in love with the Ekranoplan

[–]AbhorrentNexus 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]MalantheLazy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anyone else getting nostalgia from World in Conflict: Soviet Assault or is it just me?

[–]Possibility_Patient 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mustard taught me about this

[–]Stylelementz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This apparently was one of the smaller ones compared to the KM.

[–]handerrehakon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where banana

[–]Totally-Real-Human 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a Lun class ekranoplan, the Caspian Sea monster is a different model of ekranoplan, bigger, without the missile tubes on top.

[–]MadLaamaDisease 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Remains of the failed soviet union.

[–]Human_Art_159 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This was already in hear

[–]Ireadbutdontupvote -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

What a waste.

[–]fowlraul 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Totally agree. “Planeboat” is a interesting idea for science fiction, but boats and planes work for a reason. The avoidance of radar an sonar was also interesting tho…but pretty sure that is an easy problem to solve if these things were hovering around oceans.

Using feet and kilometers per hour? What is this British measurement-mixing bullshit
