This transport plane appeared in the years of WWII.. It was very simple in production and use.
Pilots called it "Duglasyonok" ("Small Douglas").
It was used for transport missions, but at the end of the war an assault modification was made equipped with rockets...

Hope it's easy to recognise this one.... :D

:D

Ok...
An easy question...

Ancestors of this famous Soviet tank could swim, but itself lost this ability in favor of heavier armoring and arms. But instead of swimming this tank was taught to fly and only lack of heavy towing planes prevented it from being "The best flying tank in the World"! :D :D :D

I hope it's quite enough to name this tank...

(Eugeniy, I'msure, you know this one...) :lol:

Some addition. As it stated in classic book of Shavrov the name of material was rodoid. It was a sort of plexiglas. The plane was designed by prof. S.G. Kozlov in 1935. The prototype for experiments was a serial AIR-4.

May be it's T-60? It's ancestor T-40 was amphibious but T-40S lost that ability. T-60 was next step.
