According to the original design, it can collect 12 tonnes of water in 20 seconds, and transport up to 370 tonnes of water on a single tank of fuel.With excellent maneuverability and a relatively wide range of search scope, the AG600 is capable of rescuing up to 50 people far offshore.Besides, it is very useful in developing and exploiting marine resources, being adaptable to conduct marine environmental monitoring, resource detection and transportation.It is the result of nearly seven years of work by a group of 70 aircraft component manufacturers and research teams with over 150 institutes from 20 provinces and municipalities in China. The development and production of the plane received government approval in 2009.”The AG600 is like a ship that can fly, with advanced gas-water dynamic engineering and underwater corrosion resistance technology,” said Huang Lingcai, chief designer of the plane.According to the AVIC, the AG600 will mainly target the domestic market. Seventeen intent orders have been placed so far.The unveiling of the AG600 came shortly after Chinese heavy transport aircraft the Y-20 officially entered military service on July 7 and Chinas first large passenger aircraft, the C919, rolled off the final assembly line in November 2015.Geng described the AG600 as “the latest breakthrough in Chinas aviation industry, which demonstrates an overall improvement of Chinas national strength and research capacity.”(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor: Huang Jin,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9090185;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChina starts assembly ofworld’s largest amphibious aircraftFuselage assembly of amphibious aircraft AG600 completedLargest amphibious aircraft’s nose unveiledWe RecommendWho Will Fit The Chinese Roles In Game Of Thrones?
