Flying Saucer to be Created in Russia

Russian engineers currently work on a unique flying vehicle, which looks like a flying saucer. The vehicle called “Lokomoscanner” will have 250 meters in diameter and 100 meters in height. The giant vehicle will be able to carry up to 1500 tons of various goods.

The vehicle is a combination of an aircraft, a helicopter and an aerostat, since it can move in a straight line, turn around, hover when needed and perform vertical landing. The shape of “flying saucer” provides great wind resistance, making “Lokomoscanner” indispensable for works in hard-to-reach areas.

Resources of “Lokomoscanner” attract many potential customers from both Russian and foreign enterprises.
