Incredible Photos Of The Unbelievably Massive 1987 Russian Plane
In 1987, the first 350-ton Ground Effect Vehicle (GEV) from the series of Soviet battle missile carriers was produced. The massive “ship” was called Lun (also called Project 903), after the Russian name for a bird of prey, harrier.
The Lun-class ekranoplan (NATO reportedly named Duck) was designed by Rostislav Evgenievich Alexeyev. It was used by the Soviet and Russian navies from 1987 until the late 1990s. A second Lun-class battle aircraft (named the Spasatel or “Rescuer”) was to be produced, but due to the end of Cold War and partial disarmament, the project was changed to a rescue aircraft/mobile field hospital for rapid deployment to any coastal or ocean location. It was about 90% done when the military funding ended and the second Lun ekranoplan was never completed.
The MD-160, the only model of the Lun-class ever built now sits unused at a naval station in Kaspiysk. The Russian Defense Ministry has no plans to revive the project.
