  • I think it would be good for medium/long range reconnaissance [up to 2,500 km] :) I dunno why, but I imagined a situation where this bird locates one of the Sen Toku japanese submarine aircraft carriers...:XD: :O Also a good torpedo bomber =P (Roddy1990)
  • Is it a seaplane fighter or a civilian seaplane it's kind of hard to tell. (ONI-Defense)

My comments: I'd say: civilian prototype of a possible production military observation scout type.
