The Beriev Be-12P Chayka ("Seagull", NATO reporting name: Mail) is a Soviet twin-turboprop-powered amphibious anti-submarine and firefighter aircraft.
Be-12P - firefighting version. One 4,500 l tank and two 750 l tanks installed. Four aircraft converted in 1992.
Beriev Be-12P 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.
During development of the Beriev Be-200 unique fire-fighting equipment was tested using a specially modified Be-12P, coded "12 Yellow". After installation of the fire-fighting system, the aircraft was registered RA-00046 and given the designation Be-12P-200. This modified Be-12 was used to develop both the fire-fighting system and methods of operation for the Be-200.
