I very strongly doubt this was intended as a WIG aircraft. The mounting of weapons on the lower wing is all the evidence you need, although there are a number of other indications.Gannet said:Here a photo of Russia's Aeroprogress T-752 Shtyk
It appears to me to be a WIG Type C similar to the Be-103 which is both a WIG and a Amphibious Aircraft.Howedar said:
The low-set wing (in relation to hull) provides for wing-in-ground effect during take-off and landing. Thanks to this feature the aircraft does not need flaps and can skim on the wing trailing edges.
