The Stal-8 was a more practical development of the Stal-6. It was slightly larger, main construction material was an aluminum-magnesium alloy (altmag). All joints were performed by point wielding or wheel-wielding. Cooling system, landing gear was same as on Stal-6, but cockpit was conventional and two 7.62mm guns were installed in the engine cowling.
