Hong Kong newspaper South China Morning Post said that China developed chetyrehvintovoy tiltrotor under the designation «Blue Whale» writes now mil.news.sina.com.cn.

As expected, the highest speed tiltrotor with 4 rotating four-blade propeller will reach 700 km / h (the highest rate in the midst of this class of aircraft, 40% faster than the V-22 Osprey American company Boeing). Cruising speed will be 538 km / h, load capacity 20 tons, flight range of 3100 km, 8615 m ceiling, which is also higher than that of the V-22.

Yet, some experts vary in ability to make China one hundred percent functioning layout tiltrotor during the scheduled five-year term. It is expected that the «Blue Whale» in the main will be used for military purposes.
