On September 27, the "Kunlong" AG600M fire extinguisher independently developed by China successfully completed a 12-ton water drop test at Zhanghe Airport in Jingmen, Hubei with a new fire-fighting coating.

This major test of AG600M water injection is another major milestone after the aircraft completed its first flight on land on May 31 and on August 29. It effectively evaluated the effect of water injection and fire extinguishing of AG600M. The core capabilities of actual combat applications are systematically tested.

The AG600 aircraft is a major aviation equipment developed to meet the urgent needs of China's emergency rescue system and the construction of the national natural disaster prevention and control system. It is the first large-scale special aircraft developed in China in accordance with civil airworthiness standards.
