    By far the largest WIG (wing in ground-effect) operational vehicle built. Note the missile launchers on top of the fuselage. Obsolete as soon as doppler radars were able to pull the signature out of the ground clutter.

    I found this aircraft/boat/whatever once using Google maps satellite view. It's amazing what you can find if you just look around.

    Those things were crazy. Developed as troop transports and heavy equipment movers. Amazing machines.
