China’s New Anti-submarine Aircraft Gaoxin-6 CommissionedPosted: August 15, 2016
An official magazine has published the above HD photo of China’s new type of aircraft, which must be China’s Gaoxin-6 anti-submarine aircraft. There is speculation that the aircraft has commissioned as a number has been painted on it.
The above are previous photos of test flight of Gaoxin-6 and a Gaoxin-6 with navy air force coating. Neither of the Gaoxin-6 has number painted on it.
The anti-submarine aircraft is able to quickly survey a large sea area with quick response. It is China’s first ever special anti-submarine patrol aircraft. Foreign submarine will not dare to make close reconnaissance due to Gaoxin-6’s operation because Gaoxin-6 is a powerful warplane able to carry heavy load of torpedoes, depth charges, mines, air-to-submarine missiles, etc. to kill the submarine it has detected
