Chinese ‘wingship’ that can travel 20 times faster than a boat completes sea trials

Posted by in category: transportation

According to Chinese state media, a natively developed ground-effect “wingship” has completed 30 critical sea trials, opening the door for further development.

The South China Morning Post claims that China’s new ground-effect “wingship” has just completed 30 sea trials. According to the state-run media company, the new vehicle could be used to airdrop supplies on islands and beaches and conduct quick search and rescue missions.

The “wingship,” which seems to be an example of a ground-effect vehicle or wing-in-ground-effect craft, combines an air-cushioned vehicle and an aircraft that glides close to the ground.
