The soviets sure thought up some crazy concepts, let me present to you the Ekranoplane based Aircraft Carrier.
This monster was designed to be a game changer in naval aviation, delivering large numbers of combat aircraft rapidly to combat theatres while pummeling opfor surface assets with cruise missiles.

Looks like Heli Carriers projected in fictional Hollywood movie Avengers!

Came across a newspaper report just today morning, that some in our science community are upset because of discussing ancient Indian (mythological) vimanas in science enclave. As per them it is a waste of time to discuss on technology which is impossible as per our modern science. Now they might get a new job to question Russians even to think of coming out with the idea of conceptualizing such a flying behemoth.
