Model of double-deck passenger ekranoplan designed by Rostislav Aleexeev of the Central Hydrofoil Design Bureau.

Artist's impression of "Rocket-2" ekranoplan designed by Rostislav Aleexeev of the Central Hydrodoil Design Bureau.

From Dark Roasted Blend:
The "swan song" of Rostislav Alexeev, the last considered concept was the "Rocket-2" river cruise ship design.

0.o Damn that's cool, did they really study the possibility of air-launching the Orlyonok?

Thank you stargazer,but this WIG model have a box-wing !.
I agree! But both projects have appeared as the "Chaika-2" (literally: "Seagull-2") so I believe these are just two different stages of the project, the box wing version being the definitive one. Two more pics, which show both jet and prop variants of the same:

Split from the old WIG topic. Please use this topic now for anything related to Alexeyev's WIG designs.

Thanks! I have one question which will probably sound silly to all you Soviet aircraft experts, but anyway... Is the Alekseyev of the Orlyonok the same that did the post-war I-211, I-212, I-215 and I-218 jet fighters, or a totally different engineer?

Chief Designer Rostislav Evgenievich Alekseev was involved in the TsKB Ekranoplan projects and the I-218 and early designations were the work of Semyon Mikhailovich Alekseyev.

There is a profile of RE Alekseev at http://www.foils.org/alekseev.htm.

I think the problem is compounded once again by the variety of spellings of their surname!

But isn't there only ONE spelling in Russian?

It's only the Western transcriptions which are not always properly done. Alekseyev seems to be the best one (many Western journalists simply ignore that the second "e" is pronounced "ye"...). Alexeyev is an acceptable alternative I guess.

Semyon Alexeyev (1909-1993), the author of I-211 family, was Chief Designer of NPP Zvezda since October 1952 to 1964. This is the company which produces all Russian space suits and well-known K-36 ejection seat. The Yuri Gagarin's space suit SK-1 was designed under Alexeyev's lead. In January 1964 he left his chair, followed by Guy Severin. He was never involved in Ekranoplanes, and he isn't related to Rostislav Alexeyev (1916-1980).


P.S. Of course in Russian there is only one spelling of the surname: Алексеев.
