A Weibo observer pointed out that this could be a new Y-9 variant judging by the front landing gear.

Possible new Y-9 variant:

I see 12 Y-20s in the first image. Does anyone know what base this is?

Ten Y-20s are seen at Kaifeng. The previous high was nine:

That's at Chengdu/Qionglai (30°29'25.0"N 103°27'55.0"E) and as for Kaifeng I wouldn't be surprised if there are already 11, the one on the bottom seems to be a lighter grey one but a Y-20 too.
