Russians are not considered world’s greatest engineers, and it seems that they’ve been underrated for quite some time now. The truth is, they always knew what they were doing, especially when it comes to military vehicles.

The one you are about to see will only further reinforce that claim. Named Ekranoplan the Leviatan, this exquisite airplane looks like something out of a science fiction movie. Designed during the cold war, it was capable of carrying absurd weight, and we all know where that would find a good use. The Russians claim that it was designed to be an ultimate rescue vehicle, but somehow, we doubt their honesty. Either way, you cannot deny it was magnificent.

Not only that it carried massive loads, but the speeds it was able to achieve even caught them by surprise. Projected to be around 400km per hour, this brilliant aircraft even reached 640km per hour during the testing phases. Now those are some staggering numbers!

Find out how that looked like in the video below. Trust me, you will be amazed.
