The Russian heir to the Caspian Monster will be able to carry the latest missiles


The promising Russian multi-purpose ekranoplan A-050 Chaika, which is due to go into operation this year, has already been christened the “sea monster” in the West. At least, it is in this vein that the American publication We Are The Mighty writes about him.


The latest dynamic hovercraft is called the continuation of the Caspian Monster pilot project, on the basis of which the Soviet Lun ekranoplanet was built. The latter carried six SS-N-22 Sunburn anti-ship missiles and could reach speeds of up to 342 mph.

A-050 "The Seagull", developed by the Central Design Bureau named after Alekseeva, will be able to be based on water, banks with a large slope, and even at airfields. The device will be able to move both above water (in screen mode) and through air (in airplane mode), overcoming a distance of up to 4800 km and developing a speed of up to 480 km / h.

The 54-ton Seagull will be able to take on board up to 100 passengers, or at least 9 tons of payload. At the same time, it is assumed that as a weapon a modern "hybrid" can get a supersonic Indian-Russian missile PJ-10 BrahMos ground-to-ground class. The latter is a version of the SS-N-26 Onyx and can hit surface or ground targets at a distance of up to 500 km, reaching speeds of Mach 2,8.

    Of course, I would like to believe in it, but it’s too good for this to be true. Especially about the fact that the ship will be commissioned later this year.

    Russia creates a new "sea monster" - the ekranoplan "Seagull" A-050. The ship will be commissioned later this year, according to the American publication We Are the Mighty.
    The author writes that in the USSR great importance was attached to ekranoplans due to the universal combination of the functions of aircraft and ships.

    Uh ... But can only one rocket be shoved into the passenger compartment or will it fit a few?

      Missiles, if they hang, then on the wings, and not in the cabin.

        No. Since while the Seagull is not built, but is being built, everywhere they write, a passenger-cargo model. TDs are open, online. Wings by the water, do not hang. The engine is simple.
        So just drag it into the hold, turn the ekranoplane with its tail to the enemy and pull the rocket on the go. Like a tachanka.
        Diving missiles would be more logical, but the logs do not care.

        So once again, "The US is in a panic - the Russians have created the Sea Monster."

    Turboprop, speed 480 km / h. Who will let him in the launch range. Guidance? Yes, and the question is, what will happen to him when launching a rocket ?!
    And this despite the fact that there are Bears and TU-22 ...

    Just one letter, "can" or "can", and what resonance.
