One of the probably most unique - and barely known in the West - type in PLA service is the XTW-5 WIG (XTW = 信天翁 XìnTiānWēng = Albatros). From what I know - most of all from this site: http://www.eastpendulum.com/chinese-wing-in-ground - it entered service in 2003 within the PLA Border Defence Troops, 1 Patrol Boat Squadron/Jiamusi based at Dangbizhen at the Xingkai Lake in the former Shenyang Military Region; now Northern Theater Command.

Does anyone have more information or additional images ?
