    Hovercraft, and related craft

    I am beginning with pictures of the hovercrafts of the Indian Coast Guard. Pictures and videos from anywhere in the world are welcome. This is mainly a multimedia thread, and limited discussion may occur.

    Kindly note that, since we already have one thread on the Ekranoplan, we can post that subject there.

    A Surface Effect Ship (SES) or Sidewall Hovercraft is a watercraft that has both an air cushion, like a hovercraft, and twin hulls, like a catamaran.
