2020 Volkswagen Aqua Hovercraft Concept
A new concept from Volkswagen.
The Volkswagen Aqua is a futuristic hovercraft concept created by Yuhan
Zhang, a 21 year old designer from China. Yuhan just graduated with honors
from Xihua University with a degree in Industrial Design. Currently she's
in the process of selecting a Transportation Design course to further her
The Volkswagen Aqua is designed to cope with the wide variety of terrain
which covers China. From the lakes, rivers and coastal waters, to the
roads, wetlands and snow and ice. The concept was shortlisted in the CDN
Car Design Awards China, based on the brief entitled simply; "Chinese
off-road vehicle" by Volkswagen.
Like most hovercraft, the Volkswagen Aqua uses more than one engine. The
primary motor, which is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell, is used to drive
the main fan which inflates the skirt around the vehicle and raises the
Aqua just above the ground. The fans at the rear of the vehicle are powered
by individual electric motors to provide forward thrust and directional
The styling of the Volkswagen Aqua is extremely clean and simple. There's
very little clutter to the lines, except perhaps at the rear due to the
quartet of fans. The interior has room for two people, and features a
similar minimalist vibe as the exterior.
Perhaps our only area of concern is with how you actually enter the
vehicle. See that small round hatch at the rear of the vehicle, the one
located where the rear window would normally be? That's your one and only

Admiral Flota Sovetskovo Soyuza Kuznetsoff (Russian: Адмирал
флота Советского Союза Кузнецов "Fleet Admiral
of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov") was built by the Black Sea Shipyard in
Nikolayev, Ukraine which is the only manufacturer of the Soviet/Russian
aircraft carriers. The initial name of the ship was Riga; she was launched
as Leonid Brezhnev, embarked on sea trials as Tbilisi, and finally named
Kuznetsov. She is an aircraft cruiser (heavy aircraft carrying missile
cruiser (TAVKR) in Russian classification) serving as the flagship of the
She was originally commissioned in the Soviet Navy, and was intended to be
the lead ship of her class, but the only other ship of her class, Varyag,
was never completed or commissioned by the Soviet, Russian or Ukrainian
navy. Later, this second hull was sold to the People's Republic of China by
Ukraine, completed in Dalian and launched as Liaoning. Kuznetsov was
named after the Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Nikolai
The Russian Navy (Russian: Военно-морской Флот
Российской Федерации (ВМФ России), tr.
Voyenno-morskoy Flot Rossiyskoy Federatsii (VMF Rossii), lit.
Military-Maritime Fleet of the Russian Federation) is the naval arm of the
Russian military. The present Russian Navy was formed in January 1992,
succeeding the Navy of the Commonwealth of Independent States, which had
itself succeeded the Soviet Navy following the dissolution of the Soviet
Union in December 1991.
The first Russian Navy was established by Peter the Great (Peter I) in
October 1696. Ascribed to Peter I is the oft quoted statement: "A ruler
that has but an army has one hand, but he who has a navy has both." The
symbols of the Russian Navy, the St. Andrew's flag and ensign (seen to the
right), and most of its traditions were established personally by Peter I.
Russia Listeni/ˈrʌʃə/ or /ˈrʊʃə/ (Russian: Россия, tr.
Rossiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijə] ( listen)), also officially known as the
Russian Federation (Russian: Российская Федерация,
tr. Rossiyskaya Federatsiya, IPA: [rɐˈsʲijskəjə
fʲɪdʲɪˈrat͡sɨjə] ( listen)), is a country in northern Eurasia.
It is a federal semi-presidential republic, comprising 83 federal subjects.
From northwest to southeast, Russia shares land borders with Norway,
Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland (both with Kaliningrad
Oblast), Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, China,
Mongolia, and North Korea. It shares maritime borders with Japan by the Sea
of Okhotsk, and the US state of Alaska across the Bering Strait. At
17,075,400 square kilometres (6,592,800 sq mi), Russia is the largest
country in the world, covering more than one-eighth of the Earth's
inhabited land area. Russia is also the world's ninth most populous nation
with 143 million people as of 2012. Extending across the whole of
northern Asia and much of Europe, Russia spans nine time zones and
incorporates a wide range of environments and landforms.
The United States Navy (USN) is the naval warfare service branch of the
United States Armed Forces and one of the seven uniformed services of the
United States. It is larger than the next 13 largest navies combined in
terms of battle fleet tonnage, according to one estimate. The U.S.
Navy also has the world's largest carrier fleet, with 10 in service, one
under construction (two planned), and two in reserve. The service has
317,054 personnel on active duty and 109,671 in the Navy Reserve. It
operates 286 ships in active service and more than 3,700 aircraft.
The navy traces its origins to the Continental Navy, which was established
during the American Revolutionary War and was essentially disbanded as a
separate entity shortly thereafter. It played a major role in the American
Civil War by blockading the Confederacy and seizing control of its rivers.
It played the central role in the World War II defeat of Japan.
The United States of America (USA or U.S.A.), commonly referred to as the
United States (US or U.S.) and America, is a federal republic
consisting of 50 states and a federal district. The 48 contiguous states
and the federal district of Washington, D.C. are in central North America
between Canada and Mexico. The state of Alaska is the northwestern part of
North America, west of Canada and east of Russia which is across the Bering
Strait in Asia, and the state of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-North
Pacific. The country also has five populated and nine unpopulated
territories in the Pacific and the Caribbean.
The Sukhoi Su-33 (Russian: Сухой Су-33; NATO reporting name:
Flanker-D) is an all-weather carrier-based air defence fighter designed by
Sukhoi and manufactured by KnAAPO.
