Bartini Beriev vva14 by Emigepa Bartini Beriev vva14 by Emigepa
The Bartini Beriev VVA-14 Vertikal`no-Vzletayuschaya Amphibia (vertical take-off amphibious aircraft) was developed in the Soviet Union during the 1970s. Designed to be able to take-off from the water and fly at high speed over long distances, It was to make true flights at high altitude, but also have the capability of 'flying' efficiently just above the sea surface, using ground effect. The VVA-14 was designed by Robert Bartini in answer to a perceived requirement to destroy United States Navy Polaris missile submarines. (MADE WITH BLENDER 3D)

Beautiful work on a wonderful, obscure craft. I thought I was the only person who loved this idea. Glad to see someone with real skill and artistry loves it, too.

I have always wondered how effective these craft would be...at wave top height they would have been a bear to track on most radars..

The concept proved to be practical, if a bit tricky to execute. Only lack of funds, technological limits, and loss of interest doomed it.

A large prototype ( the "Caspian Sea Monster) was built, and eventually a version that was to carry anti ship missiles. was developed....fortunately for western forces the USSR ran out of money for the project.

on a side note I've always thought this would make a good base for a heavy shuttle or spae craft of some sort..its such an odd design it just looks like something out of sci-fi.

If memory serves me right, it didn't really work at all and was ultimately a failure. Funky plane, looks sorta like a space craft
