    any mock ups or pre production models yet? this development seems to coincide nicely with the purchase of the il-76's.

    VEry

    The Y-9 is a solution of the transport problem, we can built them as much as we want to, plus itz capabilities are comparable to the C-130

    It can carry at least 10 tons right?

    empty weight is 35 tonne and max is 65 tonne. I'm sure there are other factors too.
