Air Cushion Motorcycles Developed

Russian scientists from Zhukovsky developed cross-country vehicles, which move due to air cushion and are able to swim, climb over large snowbanks and turn during jumping into the air.
      One of new vehicles, Donut, needs only 6.5 seconds to reach the speed of 100 kilometers per hour. The vehicle moves due to a screw, which sits at the front and makes driving safe, because its location prevents rubbish from getting into the screw. This improvement makes the vehicle almost non-sensitive for swamps, mud and mud streams.
      Another air cushion vehicle has a joystick instead of a driving wheel. Developers say that their vehicles are ideal for those, who love traveling at full speed. The vehicles can carry their owners where no foot may tread.
