Fundación de Investigación Aeronautica FIA, "Pelicano" WIG Of Colombia designed a project for a WIG plane to operate in the geography of that country, with capacity of four pilot seats and three passengers, engine at the top of the central support, "T" tail surfaces, wings with negative dihedral and Marginal edges inclined upwards with stabilizing floats in the lower part, a small rudder after staggering the bottom of the hull. Here I leave the published article accompanied by a cutaway of it, author Motocar

MAKS 2017: New Project A-050-742d ekranoplan emerges
At MAKS 2017, the Russian company JSC Alexeyev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau is showcasing for the first time a new concept of multipurpose ekranoplan, the Project A-050-742d ground effect vehicle (GEV). A multipurpose platform, this GEV is designed to carry passenger and/or cargo, explained the Design BureauAccording to Alexeyev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau, the Project A-050-742d is being designed for high-speed passengers and cargo transport in marine littoral areas, solving dedicated purposes of Emergency Control Ministry (EMERCOM).
This concept aircraft is made as amphibian platform which can board or land from unimproved shore with a maximum shore grade of 5 degrees.
Its operation areas and conditions comprise large lakes and water storage basis, marine areas. It can performs its range of missions under a maximum wind speed of 12 m/s. Alexeyev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau is currently studying the possibility to use it on snow and icy surfaces in cold weather.
The Project A-050-742d has a MTOW of 54 tons with a payload capacity of up to 9 tons or 100 passengers, with a 4-strong crew. It features a cruising speed of 450 km/h and a maximum flight range of 3,000 km.
The aircraft has a length of 34.8 m, a beam of 25.35 m and a depth overall of 7.85 m.

MAKS 2017: TsAGI presents HCA-LB heavy cargo aircraft project
The Zhukovsky Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI, a member of the National Research Center “Institute named after N.E.Zhukovsky”) is demonstrating the results of its scientific and experimental research at the MAKS airshow. Among others concepts is a mock-up of its "Heavy Cargo Aircraft Lifting Body" (HCA-LB) unveiled in January 2017.
The future heavy transport plane is being developed to haul big cargo weighing up to "500 metric tons of containerized freights from with speed of 500 km/h at distance above 6,000 km," declared TsAGI representative. Standard containers can be used. They are supposed to be accommodated by the cargo bays in the wings and boarded through hatches of the forebody slats of the plane’s central part.
The plane is planned to be operated by relevant airfields. The main part of the flight is performed by planes of the type at an altitude of 3-12 meters above water, ice or the ground.
Such surfaces create the ground effect that increases the aerodynamic quality and, as a result, reduces fuel consumption and boosts the range.
A model was made as part of the research work on the concept and tested in the TsAGI wind tunnel. The model was tested in the cruiser, takeoff and landing regimes.
A special screen looking like a round-ended plate was used to simulate the water, ice and ground surfaces.
The trials showed that the model had a high degree of aerodynamic efficiency both near the screen and without it, which will allow performing stable and controllable flights. The future plane is planned to be powered by liquefied natural gas. Unlike aviation kerosene, this cryogenic propellant has high energy efficiency and decreased hazardous emissions.
The natural gas will make flights environmentally friendly and ensure the competitiveness of the Russian-made plane on the global market.

Amazing Info Robertino,

and we know this designer and his series from B-1 to B-12,if his bureau still produced aircraft,
it's a fantastic and wonderful.

The office no longer works because there is no industry in the former Yugoslavia

^^nice! 500 hp V8 engine and 344 miles range.
I guess a Diesel would also be possible and i.m.o even better not only from fuel economy/range point of view!
