Russia will supply Be-200 firefighting amphibious aircraft to China.

ZHUHAI (China), (Sputnik) — Moscow and Beijing have signed a contract on the delivery of two Russia-manufactured Be-200 amphibious aircraft to China with possible sale of two more planes in future, Russian Trade Minister Denis Manturov said Wednesday.

He added that the promotion of Be-200 at foreign markets would help Beriev Aircraft Company to use its production capacities to the full extent and to produce six aircraft a year.

The Beriev Be-200 is well suited to firefighting missions. It can take in up to 12.5 metric tons of water in the space of a few seconds while traveling over a body of water before dropping the load on the flames.

Be-200 amphibious aircraft of the Russian Emergencies Ministry have prevented spread of wildfires in Haifa, Israel, the ministry’s press service told TASS on Nov 27.

"For one day, Be-200 have been extinguishing wildfires near Haifa and Jerusalem," the press service said. "In the joint effort with the Israeli ground fire grouping, they managed to protect Haiva, which has suffered wildfires already."

Within one day, the emergency ministry’s aircraft dropped water 14 times, the total weight being almost 170 tonnes.

The aircraft operated from the Hatzor Airbase. "They pick water from the Mediterranean Sea in hydroplaning, which requires top concentration from the crews, and in fact pinpoint accuracy," the emergencies ministry said. "As the aircraft fill the tanks with water right from the water surface, they require less time to get back to the fire area."
