I do believe it is called "The Caspian Sea Monster" It can only fly around 50Feet Max off of the sea, but it can take alot of load

That's pretty cool. I never knew of such a thing. I looked it up on Google and, sure enough, it is the Caspian Sea Monster.

The Caspian Sea Monster

There is a saying: ďIf itís ugly, itís British; if itís weird, itís French; and if itís ugly and weird, itís Russian.Ē

As I was looking at this monstrosity I was thinking "When was this thing built, during the Cold War?" And sure enough, I click on the above link and it says that it was built during the cold war. They're not caring for it very well.

Looks like the Russian version of the Spruce Goose.

That's funny Cole.
What I like most about this is looking at the obvious additions to both aero and hydro packages. Definitely a development mule.
