Wings in Ground Effect

Chapter

Abstract

This book aims to introduce you, our readers, to a new type of marine craft. At present there are still very few of these machines, though as long ago as the 1970s, a secret military craft of this type twice as large as a Boeing 747 airliner was already on trials in the Caspian Sea for the Russian Navy.
