Russian Aircraft - Twisted Genius?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. English Russia » Chernobyl Scrap Metal

    English Russia » Ekranoplan

    English Russia » Military Aircraft Show in Monino. Moscow

    Been looking at the various aircraft in the links above and can't help but to think that some of these designs, are not only bonkers but absolutley genius. Especially the Ekranoplan. If that had worked or gone into production, we could have suffered quite seriously if on the recieving end.

    Some of he helicopter designs are strange to say the least (compared to Western designs) but does that make them bad aircraft? Has anyone on here actually flown in one of these aircraft?

    The biggest freak of nature is the bear. These things are so loud, apparently submarines can hear them?
