I really doubt the thing flew.

Shit! 205'ed by Bubba.

the Bounder (first pic i posted) was an actual flying aircraft, from the late 50s, totally dumb soviet attempt to match the B 58. no modern aerodynamics (note the fuselage looks like a barrel) i think it barely cracked 1000 mph, even with a ton of power.

the second pic is the Ekranoplan, the ground effect plane, that happens to be the largest of them, but there was a whole bunch of different types.
