Do we have any estimates of how many light and medium transport aircraft China possesses? We know about how many Y-20 there are, but what about Y-8 and Y-9?

great so now only remaining thing is to get confirmation of J15 batch 3 using indigenous engines ?

this means all Chinese aircraft from fighters, attack and cargo use Chinese engines

KJ-600 has taken off this year and also what remains is really the H20

I can live with that leave something for 2021

Allow me to express my exalted "gladness".
Also, could someone post the ( plausible) specs of the WS-20 for getting a good perspective of the things.

From what I've read on various Chinese forums, people are claiming performance parameters on par with CFM56-5B. But I'm sure someone here know more.

In an ideal world, both the aew (and other electronics heavy variant) and tanker would use a narrower fuselage, devoid of weight penalties that come with reinforced structure that a transport plane needs... but that's not likely to happen anytime soon. And when it does, it might rather be in a form of a commercial airliner airframe.
