Excellent design, Storky. You have captured the aircraft very well.

Google "Kaspiysk" click maps, then satellite and you can see it setting in drydock

To the east are also a pair of Zubr class LCACs and a trio of either Lebed or Tsaplya class LCACs

I'm not making it up as I go along, I'm establishing precedent

I find it amazing (and almost unthinkable) that this magnificent ship is sitting in water and amazing that it is still floating. It was obviously well built. Those are some of the best pictures I have ever seen of the A90. A modernized ship of that class could do a lot of damage and a lot of good. I don't think Russia has the ability to revive or make these ships over again, maybe, but it would sure take a lot of money. The A90 is from another world and era. They would have to make use of the people who had the know how before they are gone. The Volga class ships are another story. They are pretty darn awesome.

I was in an intel position at one point in my USAF career and learned about the Ekranoplan, though I was unaware of the "Loon" missile carrying version.

One of the problems we knew the "aircraft" faced was its enormous fuel consumption. Soviet engine technology at the time was decades behind the west, both in design philosophy and materials technology. When the USAF tore down the Belenko's Mig 25, they were astounded to find stainless steel and high carbon steel components in the engine.

Flying in ground effect in any jet aircraft eats fuel at a prodigious rate. The Eplan had to have a monstrous appetite with its Soviet engines.

This is a great thread and I really enjoyed the links to the various reference sites. Thanks, guys!
