Soviet Flying Tank

Walter Christie's idea of a flying fast tank was taken seriously in the USSR (together with Christie suspension and other more realistic concepts of the famous American engineer). Here's one of the early studies for a Soviet flying AFV: a combination of BT-2 cruiser tank with a glider. Developed by Aram Rafaeliants, this project was canceled in 1933.
