Even if the H-6I is quite well known since some time, I did not know that it actually flew and also it was only known from only one image. The profile below was drawn by a friend - J.P. Santiago - for my book "Dragon's Wings"

A WP-8 provides 93.2 kN thrust and a Rolls-Royce Spery provides 54 kN thrust. Four Spery's are about 1.2t heavier than two WP-8s. That's about 15.8% increase in thrust and 19.7% increase in mass. What exactly were they trying to accomplish with H-6I back then?

To admit, ... I don't know.
