Z-20J, Naval SAR variant with aircraft ID

6xx1 cleanly indicates this Z-20J is commissioned into a new Naval Aviation unit yet to be ID-ed

Why do you think this is a confirmed serial number for a yet to be identified operational unit? From my understanding it is a - indeed quite unusual - prototype number since the photographer also noted this.

xxx1, is my educated guess. :-) I think you know where I am going with this.

At least from my understanding it is only an unusual prototpye number, maybe - just my guess a four-digit one since it uses a new test base/test unit or so - but all regular PLAN serial numbers start with a 8 and have 5-digits or for the helicopters start with a 9xxx and the final digit denotes the Independent regiment number.
