Russia will resume production of WIG vehicles as shock combat systems with cruise missiles after 2020, senior spokesperson of the Russian Navy command told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

The WIG is a high-speed vehicle, something between a heavy aircraft and a light boat. The unit flies within the limits of an aerodynamic screen at an altitude of up to several meters from the surface of water or ground.

Earlier Russia developed two models of WIG vehicles for the armed forces – the military transport “Orlenok” and the combat “Lun” with cruise missiles.
