Re: China's transport plane capacities
It does seem to me china is on the right track with y-9s, if they're to be mainstay airlift plane for any potential taiwan invasion. Actually it can carry 20 tons at 1000 km ferry range, which is enough for taiwan scenario. and that's enough for various IFVs, lil under 100 equipped troops, all deployable on unprepared runways with fast load/unload times. Since it does seem to be 100% chinese made there's little reason why PLAAF couldn't double its medium transport fleet in the coming years/decade.Chairman Hu said:VEry
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?
