Multipurpose ekranoplan "Seagull-2" will accelerate to 400 km / h

The latest multi-purpose ekranoplan "Seagull-2" can be demonstrated in the near future. This was announced on the eve of the press service of JSC NPP Radar mms, which together with JSC Central Design Bureau for SEC named after R.E. Alekseeva ”, is engaged in the creation of a promising apparatus.




The technical capabilities of the ekranoplan allow this type of aircraft to be used in a wide variety of fields and industries. Due to the fact that the territory of Russia is huge and the most diverse climatic conditions are found on it, the use of traditional transport is not always affordable and economically feasible.

The ekranoplan, in turn, does not require infrastructure and can be based both on land and on water. In addition, the device is not dependent on weather conditions, unlike the same helicopter, and can even be used in the Arctic. It is noteworthy that "Chaika-2" is able to cover a distance of 3000 km, developing a speed of up to 400 km / h in screen mode.

All this makes the promising marine multi-purpose ekranoplan a universal vehicle that can be used not only for transporting passengers and patrolling the coastal zone, but also in rescue operations, as well as for delivering specialists to offshore fields.

    Ekranoplanes are generally a very underestimated and, unfortunately, not finalized branch of aircraft-shipbuilding. In connection with the destruction of the USSR.

    Independence from weather, infrastructure and versatility as a vehicle - all these qualities can be fully realized only if there is a combination of two airbags: static and dynamic. This leads to the "SVP-Ekranoplan" hybrid, the implementation of which will significantly facilitate access to the screen mode and exit from it. The transition to electric movement along with the use of fuel cells will make this class of high-speed contactless transport not only cost-effective, but also truly indispensable for habitats remote from the mainland. If we turn to the history, then SVP Sormovich, with appropriate revision, could well become the basis for such a hybrid SVP-Ekranoplan. So there is experience, and the ideas of Rostislav Alekseev will be able to find their embodiment in life.

    The first thing that interests you after such reports is which ones and whose engines are you planning to put on these products? sad

      If this is a revival of the Soviet project, then on it Western engines are unlikely to have been taken into account. So, there should be documentation on them, or even the engine itself.

    For the stated purposes, the A-40 Albatross seaplane, which they are going to revive, is quite like

    In its pure form, the ekranoplan has not so broad prospects as the hybrid "SVP-Ekranoplan". It is a combination of static and dynamic pillows that allows you to get a vehicle that will be devoid of the disadvantages inherent in the SVP and ekranoplan separately. The future belongs to the hybrid "SVP-Ekranoplan", he and the road.
