There is an attack version of the T-34 although I do not think further than a demonstrator. The model in the picture is an idea for a fixed wing CAS platform for the U.S. Army (like that would happen).  The wings fold so you can put them in Sealand vans for transportability.  :-\

Thought I recognized that model. From that famous "Fighters-in-a-Box" website, I presume?
