Not Quite An Ekranoplan

Sho 'nuff, it is impossible for a single human being to consume too much English Russia. The finest site on the web presents this wacky-ass Soviet-era contraption, which was apparently some type of amphibious vehicle. To us, it looks like a Messerschmitt bubble car crossed with a Japanese Kaiten torpedo submarine. According to English Russia's mercurial webmaster, "It was a car that was designed and built by special Soviet car company, it had many advanced features at that time. It had some features never being implemented in Russian cars before." No shit.
