if a transport had tvcs, i would want to be in it because id get tossed and turned around. i dont know of a y-10, but there is the y-8x, comprable to c-130.

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

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.
