Zubr photos.

Quote

The landing craft of the project 12322 “Zubr” is a small landing ship on an air cushion (MDKVP). It is the largest hovercraft in the world (!). Designed by Almaz CMDB
/.../
At the moment in Russia there are only two ships of this project - MDKVP "Evgeny Kocheshkov" and MDKVP "Mordovia". Both are part of the Baltic Fleet.

"Many people assume that the Panama Canal had a massive impact on the dimensions of warships in the United States Navy. While this is true, many do not realize that warships of the US Navy were also under a height restriction.

Just as the Panama Canal influenced the beam of warships, the Brooklyn Bridge influenced the height of them.

This is because of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This Naval Yard was so important to the United States Navy that it wanted all warships to be able to sail up the river and use it. This meant traveling under the Brooklyn Bridge and its 135' (41.1m) of clearance.

This clearance influenced warship design for quite some time. Even some of the later super carriers were designed to be able to travel under the bridge. This picture shows the aircraft carrier USS Constellation (CV-64) traveling under the bridge. She had a folding mast to allow her to travel under the bridge."  - Navy General Board FB.

Helge Instaad refloated, and off to drydock to assess whether or not it's salvageable.

 

 

 

By the amount of rust that’s built up, I don’t think it’s economically feasible.
