Default Military Vehicles - 'Zubr' / Pomornik class Russian hovercraft

These pics in response to a thread on another hovercraft model - if anyone has any more pics, please upload them!

The ZIP file attached has all the images, I have chosen a few highlights to attach as images directly.

The 'Zubr' (Bison) is a gigantic Russian hovercraft, also known to NATO as 'Pomornik Class', the largest in the world.

This is the best single page for pics I found:
http://www.navsource.narod.ru/photos/07/537/index.html

Here's the wikipedia entry:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomornik

I first saw one of these monsters in St Petersburg - it was not at all obvious what it was with the skirt removed! Looked like a giant raft with three upside down jumbo jet engines on top...
