The Beriev Be-14 Chayka ("Seagull", NATO reporting name: Mail) is a Soviet twin-turboprop-powered amphibious anti-submarine and rescue aircraft.
Beriev Be-14 is development of the Beriev Be-6 flying boat whose primary roles were as an anti-submarine and maritime patrol bomber aircraft. Though tracing its origins to the Be-6, the Be-12 inherited little more than the concept of its gull wing and twin oval tailfins.
The Be-12 was first flown in October 18, 1960 at Taganrog airfield.
The Be-12 entered service with Soviet Naval Aviation, or AV-MF (Aviatcia Voenno-Morskogo Flota), in the early 1960s in the maritime patrol role, and is one of the few amphibian aircraft still in military service in the world. Initially its role was ASW patrol, but when newer missiles enabled the United States Navy submarines to launch from further offshore, the Be-12 was converted to a search and rescue role (Be-12PS). Small numbers are still in service.
According to figures released in 1993, the Russian Navy had 55 aircraft in service. By 2005 this had reduced to twelve, and by 2008 there were only 9 aircraft still in service.
Be-14 - all weather, day/night SAR version. Additional SAR and medical equipment. 6 crew. AI-20D engines. One built.
