A-90 Orlyonok, Dagestan

An experimental russian military plane built in the first half of the ┤70s, that flied only a few feets above water. It was made for very fast military transport with big payload, or it could also be used as a rocket launcher. Entered military service in 1979, and remained in service until 1993. It was planned to build about 120 planes, but only 5 made it from the drawingboard.
