Beachgoers in Russia got a little more than they bargained for when a massive military hovercraft made an unexpected landing on a crowded beach.
According to the uploader, nobody was hurt and a spokesman for the Russian military told a local newspaper that the beach landing “is a normal event,” but added “what people were doing at the beach on the territory of a military (base) is unclear.”
Umm, it looks like they were… going to the beach.
In all fairness the report adds that the spokesman may have been confused, as the beach actually is located a few miles from a military base.
The hovercraft itself appears to be one of the Russian Navy’s Zubr-class hovercrafts, which at 60 meters can carry up to 500 troops at speed of 60 knots.
