The Strangest Aircraft Ever Built: The Soviet Union's VVA-14

    This video does highlight the double standards present in world politics, such as how the US took a hard line in 1962 against the Russian deployment of nuclear missiles in Cuba within striking distance of the mainland, and yet what often gets left out of the bigger picture is that by 1961 the US not only had submarines armed with nuclear missiles surrounding their coastlines, but also deployed nuclear missiles in Turkey and Italy completely encircling Russia with nuclear strike capabilities.

    That carrier looks like something a 10 year old, or an anime artist drew. It's so bonkers compared to what exists. This era of soviet engineering was so awesome, IMO. Just absolutely wild ideas that the government was willing to throw tons of money at.

  • MrSlowestD16


    Dag sedan

    @opzz xsin I wonder if that would actually hurt this era. With all the modeling SW, it's going to be able to illustrate which parts of the design are terrible ideas (eg. high pressure or stress areas, bad flow, etc.). But without it the sky's the limit in terms of wonky ideas that will never work. "just strap more engines onto it, and keep doing that until it flies!" Here it was all capped by what you could draw, which I think lent to how crazy the ideas got. I feel like the SW would have been an extra layer of restrictions onto what was practically a free for all.
