Item Description

Soviet and Russian Ekranoplans is a thoroughly revised and expanded version of Sergey Komissarov’s book Red Star: Russia’s Ekranoplans published over 10 years ago. In the years that have elapsed since then new developments have taken place in this field both in Russia and in other countries. New projects have emerged; some of them have been built and tested in prototype form, while others represent prospective studies awaiting their implementation. The book will take into account these new projects, as well as provide new information of historical character that has become available in the recent years. The book presents a brief outline of the basic concept of wing-in-ground effect (WIG) vehicles, or ekranoplans, followed by a short review of the development of this concept from theory to viable technical solutions. The major part of the book will be devoted to the type-by-type description of specific designs of ekranoplans developed in the Soviet Union and present-day Russia in the course of half a century"
