Witness the 'Lun.' A 350-ton ground-effect monster built in 1987.
Bigger than an Airbus A380, this ground-effect "ship" was commissioned as a high-speed military transport. Designed to cruise at ten feet above the water surface and land in a 15-20 foot swell.
Armed with Moskit cruise missiles, a hit by just four of them sinks any known vessel.
This Goliath sits rotting on the shores of the Caspian Sea like some discarded prop from Star Wars.
