    Is this eventually the first better image of the Y-20U tanker? ... at least it has some sort of pod or a store under the wings.

    China should plan a massive air borne lift for its paratroopers

    They need to demonstrate their airlift capability

    having aircraft is fine can they establish a air bridge? Can they deploy on short notice? Could they lift a few thousand soldiers ?
