Turbofan engine with thrust vector control or just a subtle promotion for Windows 7? I'll let you decide.

**SNIPPED**

Reminds me of this turbofan -

Did the Xinhua article explain what "self-developed" means? Did the project team designed it from scratch, or did it modify a foreign turboshaft and called it self-developed?

Come on this is not the first time China developed a turboshaft engine. They did designed WZ-9 and in production since 2009 . I understand there is an uprated version WZ-9B.

They have been working on WZ-16 since ages with help of Turbomecca . It should be in production by now
So this turboshaft look small too me it should be within China level of technology

I must say I am a bit disappointed that they did not reveal any details higher thrust turbofans this year. At least a few hints on the WS-15 or details on the newer WS-10 variants.
