The ZUBR landing craft is intended to carry out beach landing of assault troops, as well as provide fire support. It can ferry three medium tanks or ten armored personnel carrier's or 360 troopers. The bow landing ramp provides rapid landing of armour and troops on shore. The high- temperature gas turbine engines drive four air-cushioned blowers and three air thrust propellers.
specifications
full displacment 550 tons
principal dimensions length 57.3 ft beam 25.6 ft height 21.9
power hp 3x 10,000 HP, 2x 10,000
propellers four for air cushion and three for air thrust
full speed 60 knots
range 300 knots at 50 knots
electric power source gas turbine generator
electric power 4x 100 kilowats
lift capacity three tanks, eight IFVs, or ten APCs, 360 assault troops, or 140 assault troops with 130 tons cargo

I like the lift capacity and the speed what do you think about this ship?

Wow. Thats pretty nice. It sure can carry a lot of stuff. 10 APCs or 3 tanks is very impressive. This means a couple of them could deploy a considerable force in one trip. 360 soldiers is definatly enough to do some serious damage. Combined with it's speed and covering fire makes this one heck of a lander. I can see Spetsnaz might like these thanks to it's speed, capacity, and firepower.

Wow! That is so neat! Why doesn't the US have one of those? We should totally go steal a couple.

How many does Mother Russia have anyhow?

As much as I am against stealing designs I think the Russians owe us something considering they stole our A-Bomb designs and one of our bombers. I don't think that we need to steal it though. We could probably design our own equivlent. I mean it's a lander, not a brand new bomber or something.

Yeah but why not take the origional? Do we really want a look alike? Besides, it's cheaper to steal it than to design and make it.

I know the US has landers like the Russian one we all admire, the problem is Russias is better which is why I'm dying to get one. I have to admire the Russians for this design. So I wonder how much one costs.

Im not really sure sure But I think Greece is going to buy two of them. I would guess they cost somewhere between 10-20 million but dont quote me on that.

100 million
Titus I was way off on that one. I guess thats why a country buys a grand total of 2 of them.

Man I had no clue they cost that much.

Perhaps the engine cost 10-20 million

They are actualy working on a new landing craft called the heavy lift landing craft air cushioned it is capable of carrying two M1A1 abrams tanks or 10 light armored vehicles. Still the russian one is cooler maybe me and cyberdude78 could work on our own design of the russian one and make millions of dollars hah! Then somehow rule the world yah um chicken wings. LOL
