    Corrections to the artical:

    1. According to Safran's web site https://www.safran-helicopter-engines.com/helicopter-engines/1000-2000-shp/ardiden/ardiden-3c,
    Ardiden 3C is WZ16, not one based on the other. This C variant of Ardiden 3 is a joint venture with China and ONLY used by China.
    2. According to Airbus, https://www.airbus.com/helicopters/civil-helicopters/Super-medium/h175.html
    H175 uses Canadian Pratt & Whitney's PT6C 67E, not Safran's Ardiden
    3. Like the engines, H175 (aka EC175) is NOT a base of AC352, but rather the Airbus designation of the same helicopter from the same program. The program is a joint venture from the very beginning primarily for China since 2005. In other words, there won't be H175 if there is no AC352 (aka Z-15).
    The source of this is from the same website of the above article

    AES100 Turboshaft. I think this is the civilian version of the WZ-9 turboshaft fitted on the Z-10 attack helicopter.

    Military tech ban doesn't cover dual use stuff. And even if wz16 can't be used, one can always use the same design, optimise it for some other helo and slap on a different name.

    Nothing exciting, just talking about use of WJ-10 as powerplant for the new carrier AEW&C.
