    The monster-size Zubr-class hovercraft Evgeny Kocheshkov burst onto the Kaliningrad Region’s coast, unloading BTR-82A APCs and scores of troops.

    The action marked the opening of the Race of Heroes, a military sports event, on Saturday. Evgeny Kocheshkov is armed with two unguided rocket-propelled projectile launchers, two AK-630 close-in weapon systems, and eight Igla MANPADs.

    It can transport a load of 130 tons.
