Note From the Creator

I have seen examples of Ground effect emulators in SimplePlanes such as inverted submarine controls or going away with it and using wings with fuselage tips that is extremely buoyant.

Though I want to try out one of the ground effect emulation from another vessel, that is using Heli Rotors as they have ground effect physics and boy does it skim the water with flying colours and since it does not use Inverted Submarine controls, how would one control a submarine depth but inverted, it can fly over flat islands.

To give it more playability, I took the liberty of adding a dorsal Anti-Ship Missile Launcher with 12 rounds, 6 on each side with a retractable feature to at least make it historically viable, and a functional Cargo Door at quarter Port accompanied by a lighting fixture, not normally found in the Caspian Sea Monster. And added 6 very powerful 25cm Fog Lights to add more characteristic when sailing at night.

If you do want a historically accurate model, Just DM me at dieuberwagen@gmail.com and do apologise if it is not satisfactory

    @jelybaca Hey! I absolutely love your design! Is there any chance you would let me take this design, make a couple of scaling modifications, add some working cockpit parts and republish it?

    @GemYTryG use post img, upload photos to that website right, then copy the direct link. Once that happens type ! [ ] ( ) (spaces not included)onto the description of your plane then paste the direct link between the round brackets

    @Franticmatty, sorry for the intrusion, but may you review this vessel in one of the next videos you would create? It would be very nice to see a simpleplanes contender in the ekranoplan challenge

    @Shippy456 unless the terrain is mountainous, ekranoplans in theory can sail over fields

    @Shippy456 no its real, Russia wanted something that could skim the water to be below radar and fast enough / long ranged enough to get to Americas east coast. Google ekranoplan.

    @Shippy456 itsit's not really a plane, more like a supersized hovercraft. It uses ground effect to lift out of the water.

    How the hell does this follow physics?
    How does physics allow this to fly?
    One answer: SimplePlanes.
