China has completed what it describes as the world’s largest seaplane.

The amphibious AG600 is about the size of a Boeing 737 and will be used to fight forest fires and perform marine rescue operations.

With a maximum take-off weight of 53.5 tons, the AG600 is the largest seaplane in the world. It has a reported flight range of 4,500 kilometers and can collect 12 tons of water in only 20 seconds.

Beats the Be-200 by a few metres.

It looks more like an air boat already because of those fans on top. 😆
