    AVIC: China’s largest home-made 200-tonne class air Lifter to emerge in December

    November.05 (China Military News Reporting by Johnathan Weng) — Despite of the IL-76MD, China will demonstrate its indigenous 200-tonne class heavy military airlifter in the last month of 2009. This transporter is also the largest aircraft which China has ever made. Mr. Hu Xiaofeng, the General President of AVIC, unleashes this information on one media news press today.

    Hu Xiaofeng says that the new military transporter will emerge as prototype aircraft, which is independently developed and manufactured by XAC (Xi’an Aircraft Industry Group). He also promises that the 80-tonne class C919 jet liner is being under production and will be delivered to COMAC (Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China).

    China-Defense-Mashup has reported before that this military transport airfraft project was initiated before 3-4 years. Chinese Government has esteemed this project as “National Significant Project”. The Military department believes that the R&D on heavy airlifter should be based on the mature and reliable technologies, but its performance can approach the international advanced transport aircraft with Chinese independent innovative technologies.

    It can be summarized that China’s future Military Heavy airlifter Prototype will be designed on Russia’s IL-76MD. But China’s airlift aircraft will has an expanded size and payload capacity, improved electronic devices, and even some concepts absorbed from C-17. For the Engine, China will probably use D-30 engines and then replace them by WS-18 or advanced 4 high-Bypass ratio turbofan engines developed from FWS-10.

    The detailed information has been unavailable. Here is the previous specifications estimation. Some numbers may be incorrect.

    Crew: 3
    Payload Capacity: 60,000-65000 kg
    Length: 49 m
    Wingspan: 50 m
    Height: 15 m
    Wing area: 310 m2
    Empty weight: 100,000 kg
    Max takeoff weight: 220,000 kg
    Power: 4×turbofans
    Maximum speed: 750-800 km/h
    Range: (with max payload) 4,400 km
    Service ceiling: 13,000 m

    For years, Xi’an Aircraft Industry Group has been absorbing foreign aviation technologies and QC(Quality Control) & QA(Quality assurance) measurements by industrial subcontracting with Boeing and Airbus. Meanwhile, AVIC is preparing the correspondent attached technological projects. Such as CARDC (China Aerodynamics Research & Development Center) has achieved breakthrough in “Turbofan Engine low-speed Simulating Testing Technologies” for Airlifter high bypass engine. Besides, in 2008 China’s research on Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) based carbon fibers will reach its milestone to produce high-performance aviation materials. PLA’s future heavy airlifter will realize the shrunk aircraft empty weight by CF Compound Material made fuselage and wings.

    IL-76 of PLA Air Force

    The strategic value of China’s heavy airlifter, is not only the great improvement PLA’s forces long distance projection, but also an air platform for China’s New concept Strategic Weapon System. A great conventional weapon gap between PLA and U.S. forces usually shrivels China leaders’ purpose of taking Taiwan back by forces. So Heads in China Government has been focusing on unconventional “Shashoujian” weapon system for strategic striking back.

    On the media news press, Hu Xiaofeng also says that L-15 will participate this month’s Dubai Air show 2009. He tells that lots of foreign Air Force pilots have visited Aviation Industry Group for related test flight.

    November.6 is the one year birthday of Re-grouped AVIC group.

    Bigger than the IL-76. smaller than the C-17.
    Carrying a 99tank on board is a basic need.

    2 fictive pictures on top are not accurate, I think.

    Abnormalice CPC's confidentiality rules!

    But, we will see it end of this year finally.

    This is precisely what Takes China to a differnt league. They are trying to get things done by themselves.

    Good Effort.

    India Should follow Them, They are aleady competing but the efforts need to be more extensive.

    Apart from Military benifits it Helps us do add more jobs, tech independence and above all saves Money and Forex.

    Anyway, we don't deny it's a copy of D30K2. I have no problem with this. Finally we will make our own design.

    The plane does come as a pleasant surprise (to me). If it is shanzhai engine, would Russia again dispute the license rights?
