    I think they should cancel Y30

    Waste of time and resource

    Y20 and Y9 is enough

    Way I see do Y30 down the line for when you need a larger transport/Tanker.
    Keep Y9 for special missions.

    From what I understand there is now a Chinese supplier for the engine. WS-18.

    That's actually Kaifeng; home of the 13th TD/37th AR ... but also Airborne Forces

    China has proved it can scale up production of a large military cargo plane

    Now I would like to see civilian sector do this with ARJ21 and C919
