Re: Leningrad Air Force Academy strategic seaplane bombers

Design of these projects was Moskalev, AS developed in 1957 -1960 years.
At the moments Moskalev was a teacher design, durability and aerodynamics at the Faculty of Engineering of the Leningrad Academy named Mozhaiskogo

Hey, are these seaplanes? The aircraft in the top picture seems to have a hard chine in the lower part of its hull and the one in the bottom looks like it has wave-deflecting strakes on the forward part of its hull.

They look like flying boats to me as well. Their engines are either on top of the hull or with inverted ramp intakes, they both have apparent flotation devices on or near the wingtips, and the aforementioned boat hull form or 'wave deflecting strakes'. Also, the Klingon Battlecruiser looking one has a hydroski drawn in dashed lines below its hull.

"Hey, are these seaplanes?"

They are indeed and at least about the GSB-1 you can find some information
in APR Volume 5, N° 4, or in Tony Buttlers "Soviet Secret Projects, Bombers
since 1945"
