China debuts J-20 stealth jet in show of strength at country's biggest expo
Reuters Excerpt

China showed its Chengdu J-20 stealth fighter in public for the first time on Tuesday, opening the country's biggest meeting of aircraft makers and buyers with a show of its military clout.

Airshow China, in the southern city of Zhuhai, offers Beijing an opportunity to demonstrate its ambitions in civil aerospace and to underline its growing capability in defense. China is set to overtake the U.S. as the world's top aviation market in the next decade.

Two J-20 jets, Zhuhai's headline act, swept over dignitaries, hundreds of spectators and industry executives gathered at the show's opening ceremony in a flypast that barely exceeded a minute, generating a deafening roar that was met with gasps and applause and set off car alarms in a parking lot.

Experts say China has been refining designs for the J-20, first glimpsed by planespotters in 2010, in the hope of narrowing a military technology gap with the United States. President Xi Jinping has pushed to toughen the armed forces as China takes a more assertive stance in Asia, particularly in the South China and East China seas.

"It is clearly a big step forward in Chinese combat capability," said Bradley Perrett of Aviation Week, a veteran China watcher.

Is it not a Spamtanov?

An-158 or 178

That would be the new Xian Y-20 military transport.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
After stealth fighters and jumbo jets at Zhuhai Air Show, China’s ‘secret weapon’: jet engines
November 4, 2016

Beyond the roar of its new stealth jets and the buzz of plans to build commercial jumbos, China in the past week offered a quiet first peek at a key test of its drive to become a global aviation powerhouse - a giant state-owned aero engine maker.

In an unassuming pavilion the size of a large gym, tucked behind the main exhibition halls of the Airshow China expo that closes on Sunday, Aero Engine Corp of China (AECC) was on public display for the first time. Beijing launched the firm in August in a multibillion dollar mission to develop home-grown, high-tech products fit for export.

For all the grand vision, no new technology was on display at the 1,200 square metre pavilion. That was no surprise to Western industry experts: while China has so far grown more in scale and speed its in aviation drive than some expected, the proprietary commercial engines that are the pinnacle of aero development will take at least a decade to develop, they say.

“Designing an entire engine and designing the entire infrastructure around it so that you can develop it and maintain it, that is the big issue,” said Jorg Schluter, a senior engineering lecturer at Australia’s Deakin University.

The AECC’s presence at the show in Zhuhai, China’s biggest air expo, was far from discreet, with banners on the highway to the event site emblazoned with its blue and white logo. Still, an AECC official at the site told Reuters that the firm was not giving interviews nor holding events at AirShow China.

Engine mock-ups, gas turbines whose design dates back to 2002 and an interactive science exhibition offered little more than a rough sketch of a company with a nearly 100,000-strong workforce. Drawn together in a union of more than 20 engine companies, repair sites and institutes scattered around the country, AECC’s origins date back to the Mao era.

What the company has to its advantage, analysts concede, is cash and a fast-growing domestic airline market. The new firm was seeded with registered capital of 50 billion yuan ($7.40 billion) from the State Council, the Beijing government, as well as state-owned planemakers.

eijing’s efforts to transform state-owned businesses have reached into sectors such as steel and shipping. But it has no major presence in the commercial engine sector, dominated by General Electric, United Technologies’ Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce.

“If you want to break into the world it’s a very difficult thing to do and the incumbents aren’t going to make it easy,” said Mark Daly, editor of IHS Jane’s Aero-Engines. China’s first home-built passenger jets, the ARJ-21 and C919, currently use foreign-made engines.

This bird is bigger! It's a cousin of Ilyushin IL-76. They even use the same Russian engines.
