Today’s military surprise comes in the form of a 60m long, 500+ tonne military hovercraft. It recently landed on a busy beach on the Baltic coast. Apparently no one was injured, which is pretty amazing when you watch the footage.
“What people were doing at the beach on the territory of a military (base) is unclear.”
However the newspaper comments that the actual designated military area is a few kilometers further up the beach. So it seems, in reality, that the military probably mucked it up good and proper and were way off their mark.
It certainly makes for an arresting scene though. Apparently, after the landing, a butt load of paratroopers got out and moved everyone on. Brilliant.
Here are some other excellent Russian fandangos if you’re interested:
