    It works on the principle of using ground effect over water so it needs its engines to have high clearance from water and also be able to provide prop wash over the wings & fuselage to add to the lift.

    Something similar to



    The Caspian Sea Monster, officially «KM» (Korabl Maket, Russian - Корабль-макет Experimental Craft),[1] also known as the "Kaspian Monster", was an experimental ground effect vehicle (or ekranoplan)—a craft that flies, but stays close to the surface so it can rely on the ground effect. It was developed at the design bureau of Rostislav Alexeyev.


    A ground effect vehicle (GEV) is a vehicle that is designed to attain sustained flight over a level surface (usually over the sea) by making use of ground effect, the aerodynamic interaction between the wings and the surface. Among the best known are the Soviet ekranoplans, but names like wing-in-ground-effect (WIG), flarecraft, sea skimmer or wing-in-surface-effect ship (WISE) are also used.
