    Z-19, the new attack helicopter

    I found this on Huitong, not sure if anyone has talked about this yet... The new Z-19. However, the photo listed on the site looks like a Z-9 to me...

    The Z-19 thingy is probably just a plastic model used for a Chinese TV series.

    Looks like the Z-10, are you guys sure this is a new design?? I can't really tell if there is any visual difference between the "Z-19" and Z-10 besides the fantail tail rotor design.

    There is a new TV series based on Attach Helicopters out recently. So go take a look.

    Well Z-10 has an apache style tail and it's already starting to enter service -- I doubt they would substantially redesign it that much -- and the Z-19 is supposedly developed from the Z-9, which has a fenestron tail rotor as well.
    So yes I'm sure it's a new design, and I'm sure it exists, from this photo of a mock up at (what I presume to be) an AVIC compound.

    Re: Z-19, the new attack helicopter

    I'm no expert, but wouldn't the position of the Z-19's engine exhaust (pointing upwards) interfere a bit with the lift of the aircraft? It may not interfere by much, but I believe that it might be more efficient if the exhaust wasn't oriented that way.

    There are TWO perfectly good reasons, but I am not going to say it. Its best secrets are kept secret.
    That particular detail shows the level of careful thoughts put into the design. I congratulate CAIC for the marvelous design.

    Re: Z-19, the new attack helicopter

    Well given its size compared to the ground it looks pretty real to me. Having a WZ-19 light attack helicopter and a WZ-10 attack helicopter a good combination, like the United States operating both the AH-64D and the AH-1.

    The Z-19 might also prove popular for export if its cheap enough
