Abandoned Ekranoplan

‘The Lun-class (harrier) ekranoplan was a seaplane used by the Soviet and Russian navies from 1987 to sometime in the late 1990s.

- Wikipedia

‘The 240-foot long Lun-class vessels were designed to skim just over the surface of the sea at up to 340-miles per-hour while carrying six, P-270 Moskit guided missiles meant to take out NATO ships.’  

- Defense Tech

‘The only Lun completed is now sitting unused at a naval station in the town of Kaspiysk.’
