I'd point out that design assistance for the Y20 programme came from Antonov(a Ukranian company), not Ilyushin(the Russian manufacture of the Il76); but I tire of fact checking the claims of ignorant Indian trolls on threads about Chinese platforms.

Even if it had 8 engines and an 80m wide wing-span you'd claim it was a copy of something else to sooth your injured pride. It's not China's fault that the Indian MIC is incapable of producing a similar platform.

assistance??? u r known to do reverse engg not assistance . sale choor:):):):)

China's home-grown AG600, the world's largest amphibious aircraft in production, also known as "Kunlong", is seen at Jinwan Airport in Zhuhai in China's southern Guangdong province on Sunday. | Phot


http://www.thehindu.com/news/intern...us-aircraft/article22270932.ece?homepage=true

Its name “Kunlong” stands for a high expectation in Chinese culture with the “Kun” meaning an enormous legendary fish and “Long” a dragon.

China on Sunday successfully conducted the maiden flight of its first indigenous amphibious aircraft, believed to be the world’s largest, in southern Guangdong Province.

The aircraft AG600, code named “Kunlong”, lifted off from the Jinwan Civil Aviation Airport in Zhuhai in Guangdong. The flight lasted about one hour.

“The maiden flight makes China among the few countries capable of developing a large amphibious aircraft,” said Huang Lingcai, chief designer of AG600.

The ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) has congratulated all those engaged in the mission.

The congratulatory message said the maiden flight was a major breakthrough in developing special-purpose aircraft following the first flight of the large C919 passenger jet in May.

The 39.6-meter aircraft is powered by four domestically- built turboprop engines, according to its developer, the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC).

With a maximum take-off weight of 53.5 tonnes and a top cruising speed of 500 kilometers per hour, the AG600 has a range of 12 hours.


Designed to be the world’s largest amphibious aircraft, the AG600 will be mainly used for maritime rescue, fighting forest fires and marine monitoring, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

It can carry 50 people during search-and-rescue missions, collect 12 tonnes of water in 20 seconds for fire fighting and transport up to 370 tonnes of water on a single tank of fuel.

Its name “Kunlong” stands for a high expectation in Chinese culture with the “Kun” meaning an enormous legendary fish and “Long” a dragon.

China in recent years made major strides in aviation technology.

The AG600 is the third member of China’s “large aircraft family” following the large freighter Y-20 and large passenger aircraft C919, which made maiden flights in 2013 and 2017. The Y-20 entered into service with China’s airforce in July 2016.

On December 17, the second prototype of China’s large passenger jet C919 completed its maiden flight in Shanghai.

It tested the performance of the C919 major systems and equipment, such as taking-off and landing, navigation and communication, speed acceleration and deceleration.

It isn't the job of the government to build an industry. It is the job of the government to create a climate that an industry can thrive in a global marketplace. It is competition that makes any industry prosper, India suffers from a monopoly on defence with a sector that isn't large enough to create the competition. China has a much larger sector where some competition takes place. Like India, France is in the same position but we derive excellence by competing internationally against all the other products. If we don't succeed, the industry will die.

Honestly, I don't understand the thinking behind this "smurf" uniform from the marines. Let alone why they paint their armoured vehicles in the same "cammo"
Military Cano should be olive green or desert or even white works well in hilly areas.

I don't understand where does this camo fits it,and on top of that you guys have this green vest, this colour combo is easy to spot in an open field.
