Will China Use the World’s Largest Amphibious Plane to Dominate the South China Sea?
A new series of China’s turboprop-propelled amphibious aircraft, the Jiaolong, meaning “flood dragon” in Mandarin, will ascend from water in its maiden offshore flight in the second half of the year, its developer the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) announced this weekend.
Coded AG600, the Jiaolong, the largest plane of its kind worldwide, features four turboprop engines riveted on to a 40-meter wingspan as well as a chubby fuselage capable of housing 50 passengers and three pilots. It has a range of 5,500 kilometers at a cruising speed of 480km/h.
