    Raketa (hydrofoil)
    Manufactured in the USSR in the late 60's and exported to other countries.
    Nothing of the sort, Neither America, nor Europe, nor Israel could do.
    ---------------------
    The ticket for the ship cost $ 15 (10 rubles) per 100 kilometers

    Well tell me, Sullivan: How long before those Russians experience a horrible catastrophic crash with one of those goofy boats?

    I mean, Russians are pretty good at splattering their commercial airliners all over the countryside, aren't they? Just a matter of time, I guess.

    Nobody else can make hydrofoils?

    I don't think that's the case.

    I have not heard of any catastrophe on these boats.
    When I was 9 years old, in 1976 I drove on such a "rocket" along the Dniester River to the Black Sea.
    An unforgettable experience!

    Right. The Dagos were making those way back in 1962...

    Disco Volante

    Of course, it takes the Russians a little longer to catch up with everyone else.

    :laugh:

    What's with the "strangeness of the English language"?
    You mean air accidents?
    I will prove to you that there were more air accidents with American planes than with Soviet ones.
    As for modern Russia, I am not interested in this, since this country has prosecuted all the achievements of the Soviet Union

    Yes, I expected this!
    These are military ships!
    But America has never done civil hydrofoil ships.
    And the USSR produced them like sausages
