Russian Navy Hovercraft Lands On Busy Beach! Zubr Class Hovercraft Shocks
Sunbathers! HD Full Footage!
Sunseekers enjoying the white sands of Russia's Baltic Coast got an
experience they would not have expected when a military hovercraft made a
surprise appearance.Russian authorities confirmed the incident saying the
ship and its crew had been carrying out a routine training exercise.
Russian Navy Hovercraft Lands On Busy Beach
Hundreds of sunbathers have their day at the seaside interrupted by a
60-metre hovercraft when it lands unexpectedly on a beach. A huge military
hovercraft has made an unexpected landing on a packed beach in Russia.
Hundreds of people were sunbathing on the beach when the vessel powered
towards them. No one was injured, although witnesses said beachgoers were
surrounded by paratroopers and asked to move on. A spokesman for the
Russian defence ministry told local newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda that the
hovercraft was on a tactical mission in an area owned by the military.
"Docking at the beach ... is a normal event," a spokesman was quoted as
saying. "What people were doing at the beach on the territory of a military
(base) is unclear."
However, the newspaper said the base the ministry was referring to was in
Khmelevka, several kilometres away.
The hovercraft is believed to have been one of the Russian Navy's Zubr-type
crafts, which are built in St Petersburg and can travel at speeds of up to
60 knots (110kmh, 68mph). They weigh around 550 tonnes and measure nearly
60 metres in length. The vessels carry up to 500 troops and can be fitted
with missile launchers, automatic gun mounts and equipment to lay mines.

Russian Military Hovercraft Lands
This is the worlds largest military hovercraft and it belongs to the
Russian army. Only 9 of it in active duty now! It is armed with missiles,
artillery and AA defense guns and can carry a few heavy tanks at once.
After approaching to the enemy coastline it can give a burst of fire to
tear of such fierce force that can tear big military ship apart, then
without any slowing down start moving on the shore advancing deep inside to
unload the tanks and infantry.
The Zubr-class (Project 1232.2 class, NATO reporting name Pomornik) is a
class of air-cushioned landing craft of Soviet design. This class of
military hovercraft is, as of 2012, the world's largest hovercraft. It is
designed to sealift landing assault units (such as marines or tanks) from
equipped/non-equipped vessels to non-equipped shore, as well as transport
and plant mines.
There are currently nine ships in active service in the world. The Zubr is
used by the Russian, Ukrainian, and Greek navies. The transfer of the
Kefalonia (L- 180), the first of two Zubr hovercraft purchased by Greece,
to the Hellenic Navy marked the first time that a Russian-made ship was
purchased by the navy of a NATO member.

Los Angeles County Squad 20 and Care Ambulance responding Code 3 down
Imperial Highway cross Woods Avenue in the City of Norwalk, December 29,
[Ride along] Squad 8 LACoFD
Ride along in the middle of the night in West Hollywood with squad 8 from
the Los Angeles County Fire Department. Fire station 8 has a small 1st due
are so that most of the calls are very close to the fire house. Station 8
houses 4 vehicles with 3 of them being parked in a row in one bay. So
depending on the call the crew may need to shuffle by getting out some
trucks before the dispatched unit(s) can leave the station. LACoFD always
responds to medical calls with both the nearest squad and engine. The
transport is being operated by private ambulance companies //
