Russia's International Institute for Advanced Aerospace Studies proposes to develop a
1,500-ton twin-body "Ekranoplan" wing-in-ground effect seaplane as a launch platform
for future reusable launch vehicles. Such a vehicle would be able to release launch
vehicles at a speed of about 500 km/h. Demonstration tests are planned with a 400-ton
subscale Ekranoplan model in 2001.
