Ekranoplan

The Caspian Sea Monster Ekranoplan KM (Ground Effect Vehicle)- the biggest this type vehicle ever designed still holding the record for lifting the heaviest load off the ground.

It still holds the record for lifting the heaviest load off the ground (more even than the largest modern cargo plane Antonov An 225 “Mriya” can handle) and had an air of mystery around it for a long time, tested in secrecy on the Caspian Sea from 1966 to 1980 years.
