New Alpha Lun not the real 'Caspian Sea Monster'

Recommended Posts

Though I think it is cool to see the new Alphasim release I take exception with the "Caspian Sea Monster" moniker being applied as misleading.Would "Aluminum overcast" be ok to apply to the B-52 or B-36?The "Lun" that was just released from AlphaSim is not the real Wing In Ground-effect Monster that made aviation news when it was first discovered and affectionately named the Caspian Sea Monster by the west, "Caspian Sea Monster" belongs to the much bigger "Korabl Maket" or "KM".KM: Over 550 tons, 348 feet length.Lun: 400 tons, 240 feet lengthSome ref:KMhttp://www.samolet.co.uk/km.html Lunhttp://www.samolet.co.uk/km.htmlVideo of the KM in ground effect "flight":http://www.hypercraft-associates.com/misc%20files/km4.mpg
