Flight tests showed that it did not provide sufficient advantage to dislocate Il production, and so the Il-8 was abandoned. The production aircraft was designated the "Il-2 Shturmovik" -- where "Shturmovik" meant "Storm Bird", a general term for a close-support aircraft. The original Il-2 was a single-seater.
