The Zubr class (Project 1232.2 class, NATO reporting name Pomornik) is a class of air-cushioned landing craft of Soviet design. This class of military hovercraft is currently, as of 2012, the world’s largest hovercraft.[4] There are currently nine ships in active service in the world. The Zubr is used by the Russian, Ukrainian, and Greek navies.[3] The transfer of the Kefalonia (L- 180), the first of two Zubr hovercraft purchased by Greece,[5] to the Hellenic Navy marked the first time that a Russian-made ship was purchased by the navy of a NATO member.[6][7][8]
It is designed to sealift landing assault units (such as marines or tanks) from equipped/non-equipped vessels to non-equipped shore, as well as transport and plant mines.

Is this to be used for military purposes. If so, in what role.
Looks awesome.
In amphibious warfare duties in mangrove areas, river deltas and rivers!

This is to be inducted by People's Liberation Army Navy. They have placed an order for placed four craft at a cost of 315 million US dollars. Two will be built by a Ukrainian firm in Feodosiya, and a second pair of vessels will be built in China.

Zubr class is the Worlds largest Hover Craft!

Holland, Switzerland, south korea, south africa, Slovakia, happens to be "tiny" nations who have supplied sophisticated weapons to mighty India.
Not to mention also Israel which supplied light weaponry which Shameful Scatland and Pitland cannot even manufacture to the most sophiticated radar and anti missile system, tavor assault rifle, barak anti missile etc. Shameful Shining India is good only for being a hub in drug dealing, corruption, money laundering and bollywood daydreaming films.
