I always thought that would be an awesome idea, considering the amount of wildfires here on the west coast. Now I'm really excited to see it come true.
Great news, thanks for sharing!

I like the airplane, but I'm not holding my breath on this one.
With the current chill between the US and Russia AND having to certify it to fly in the US.
Then after all that you have to get the US Forest Service to certify it and THEN give it a contract.
A whole lot of hoops to jump through before that thing ever sees a fire in the US.

A random internet find: Be-200 dropping a water bomb on fire.

It looks like it was recorded from a Russian TV broadcast.
