    How does SMT Pielstick compare to Germany's MTU, who also competes with SMT for both Chinese and global markets. Why didn't they use MTU engines on the 054X, just like on the 052X destroyers?

    Have they indigenized the MTU engine?

    All I know is that Shanxii produce MTU engines under license for military vessels.
