Semedian Swanson CAC642-100 "NanoBeribus"

Guess I have a thing for amphibious aircraft now. Makes sense since I live on an island and/or my country is known to suffer from wildfires, should make firefighting variants next, I think.
This pull-push turboprop is so unintentionally sturdy that I guess I can also call this my true first all terrain airliner. Doesn't need a perfectly flat surface to take off or land. Perfect for deploying or rescuing adventurers from the dunes of Maywar or the tundra of Snowstone.

A huge thanks to @ShiroNeko and @MexTexz for the help with the screenshots.
