Multi-purpose vehicle model Harbin Z-9, began to develop Chinese aircraft manufacturers of the company «Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation» in 1966 year. As a support base, it was decided to use model helicopter Harbin Z-5Which is essentially an improved analogue of the Soviet aircraft Mi-4.

However, the Chinese engineers did not borrow the design from the model Harbin Z-5 and in fact, developed a new design of the aircraft, which has become more practical in terms of its operational capabilities. The technical honor of the helicopter also underwent significant changes, which made the aircraft model Harbin Z-6 faster, and the key feature was the use of a gas turbine power plant capable of developing more power and giving the aircraft a higher flight speed.

Chinese aviarazrabotchikam took less than three years in order to realize that the first test flight, which was carried out in the year 1969. Due to the fact that the aircraft demonstrated high aircraft performance parameters of its use, the project was put into production, however, due to the fact that the model is largely risen, the release of the aircraft has been largely limited to - for the entire period of production was built just 11 copies of the helicopter.

As well as the model of Harbin Z-5, helicopter Harbin Z-6 has received a multi-purpose, in particular, it could be used for transportation of people and soldiers, used to transport goods, as well as a number of special operations, including for the treatment of agricultural land , works to patrol the area and others.

On board the aircraft Harbin Z-6 15 can accommodate up to people, which includes 3 12 crew members and passengers (soldiers). The presence on board a helicopter a large amount of free space allows to transport and small loads of up to 1200 kg, which was in turn the application using this model.

The power plant of the helicopter model Harbin Z-6 is represented by one gas turbine aircraft engine of the brand Dongan WZ-5, which is capable of developing thrust in 2200 hp, which provided the aircraft, in addition to a large carrying capacity, also a high speed of displacement of up to 205 km / h . A Harbin Z-6 helicopter can fly over distances up to 650 kilometers, which is quite acceptable for this type of aircraft.
