Air cushion vehicle MARS-10 isdesigned forcomfortable operation over water, overgrown shallow waters, sand banks, snow and any other relatively flat surface. Theamphibious vehicle perfectly moves on loose snow, along rivers during ice drift and freeze-up.

Main advantages of MARS-10
Low noise level
Anti-icing system
Towed transportation
High height of overcome obstacle
Three-cylinder system offlexible skirt
Speed up to 110 km/h
Familiar control system
Control system of hovercraft is made based on the VAZ torpedo vehicle. All known devices and sensors are located on usual place. There are also additional functions which you can get acquainted with by signing up for the Air-Cushion Vehicle (ACV) MARS-10 test drive.

Transportation on a trailer
The design of ACV MARS-10 allows ACV to be transported on a car trailer. Deflated flexible skirt and skeg cylinders are folded up in transporting position and secured to the main vehicle hull. Loading on a trailer and unloading of the hovercraft is carried out by the means of autoloader. We offer our clients a special trailer for hovercraft transportation, which hovercraft can drive in and out by its own.
Anti-icing system
The hovercraft is equipped with anti-icing system to ensure reliable and long-term operation of steering gears in winter conditions. This solution protects horizontal and vertical rudders of the vehicle from ice formation in case of water splashes or wet snow ingress during motion. Rudder icing causes not only bad steering and high wear and tear of gears, but also increase in the weight of the vehicle, which negatively affects the running performances. Installed anti-icing system copes successfully with all these problems.
System of horizontal rudders
Due to the system of horizontal rudders the vehicle pilot is able to raise and lower the hovercraft bow which is convenient when passing high obstacle. Due to this solution the hovercraft MARS-10 has one of the highest parameters of overcome obstacles height for vehicles in its class, equal to 0,75 m. The big height of overcome obstacles enables the hovercraft to overcome ice clogging during ice drift and freeze-up.
