After searching a bit, I found a mention of the Ekranoplane Carrier here:


I suppose more info can be dug out of the references to the paper.
The Carrier is Bartini project A-2500

I think WiGs have lots of merit and value, both for military as well as commercial applications. Its too bad the US does not look to develop LO-type Wigs for amphibious assault missions, operating in salt water could the issue but composites could solve that, maybe, not an expert in this area?

Is that an actual scan from the book?

Looks like a mix of a KM airframe with four NK-12M for cruising for the ASW patrol role.
Given it looks a cross between the KM and Orlyonok in features, I'd say this was a late 1960s proposal.
