Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Russian Lun class Ekranoplan, too few details to say which, but my guess would be a Lun-1 or the 160, military version. One of the give-aways for the latter assessment (it also exists in a SAR version today) are the two visible tubes, those are the forward two of the total of 6 3M80 anti-shipping cruise missiles = ZM-80 "Moskit" (SS-N-22 Sunburn in NATO terms).



FSX version:



It is not the latest Caspian Sea Monster, as this has a v-tail:



Check this video.

The big question here is why #6 (#3? what direction did the Ruskies count?) has this basket ingestion protection, and the others not? I cannot even seem to discern fittings for them on the other engines?

I noticed the same thing but I was't sure it was intended that way or that other 'protections'(?) fell off after some time

so Ekranoplan isn't the name but the 'sort' of airplane: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ekranoplan

Quote
A ground effect vehicle (GEV) is one that attains level flight near the surface of the Earth, made possible by a cushion of high-pressure air created by the aerodynamic interaction between the wings and the surface known as ground effect. Also known as a wing-in-ground-effect  (WIG) vehicle, flarecraft, sea skimmer, ekranoplan, or wing-in-surface-effect ship (WISE), a GEV can be seen as a transition between a hovercraft  and an aircraft. The International Maritime Organization, (IMO), has classified the GEV as a ship. a GEV differs from an aircraft in that it cannot operate without ground effect, so its operating height is limited relative to its wingspan.

In recent years a large number of different GEV types have evolved for both civilian and military use. However, these craft are not in wide use.

Another name for such craft, ekranoplan (Russian: Huh?Huh?Huh???, French: ecran screen + plan plane ) is a vehicle resembling an aircraft but which operates solely on the principle of ground effect (in Russian Huh?Huh? Huh?Huh? effekt ekrana - from which the name derived). Ground effect vehicles fly above any flat surface, with the height above ground dependent upon the size of the vehicle. The ekranoplan design was conceived by the revolutionary Soviet engineer Rostislav Alexeev.
