Why are we buying a lpt shaft from Norway? has COMAC been living under a rock?
Its equipment for engine test and development. Its not for use in the engine itself. Understand that china is behing in aircraft engine tech and must get whatever it can get from nations with more advanced tech, more so for an engine for civilian use.

China’s variable-cycle engine has carried out flight tests: After more than ten years, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Shenyang Institute of Aviation Industry, Northwestern Polytechnical University jointly completed the "Research and Application of Key Technologies for Multidisciplinary Simulation of Advanced Combat Aircraft Propulsion Systems".

The project was patented 16 Among them, 14 invention patents, 2 software copyrights, 2 monographs, 13 SCI papers, 12 EI papers, 1 third prize of the 2017 China Machinery Industry Science and Technology Progress Award, and 2 national military standards , The relevant results have been applied in multiple domestic aero engine models, the first carrier-based fighter, the first ground-attack unmanned combat platform, the first domestic modal conversion flight test and other models, and the flight verification has been completed, which can support The research team was appointed as the stability support team for the development of a certain key aero engine model of the country for the demonstration and development of the next generation of multi-purpose advanced fighter jets and high-altitude long-endurance unmanned reconnaissance aircraft. The research results have important military and social benefits.

Flight tests!?!?!? That's a surprise since we haven't heard much about it except the existence of such projects for nearly a decade.

Sometimes I feel like China is just as closed of as North Korea regarding military developments even though the country has opened up a lot. Things like these reaffirm that feeling.

It'd be nice to know the numbers associated with the VC Engine.

Via Weasel_1962 Not exactly chinese engine but it bear relation as to the status of WS20 Seem like no new order for DK30 since 2016. Interesting it give us some idea how many Y20 are produced sofar 30-40 but there are engine available until it reach 45. And planned H-6K production is around 120 wow probably mixed H-6K, H-6J, H-6N

Link claims 463 D30 engines imported from Russia for H-6K & Y-20

2009 - 55 D30 for 20 H-6K (weasel's note: ties with Sipri reporting which indicated this may also be for Il-76)

2011 - 184 D30 for 5 Y-20, 80 H-6K ((weasel's note: Sipri also indicated for Il-76, tiananmenwordpress indicated 41 used for IL-76)
2016 - 170 D30 for 40 Y-20 (Not reported by Sipri)
2016 - 54 D30 for 20 H-6K (Not reported by Sipri)
Total 463 D30 imported

Noted the 2016 contracts were cited by BMPD as for Il76 & Y-20s.

Actually a better comparison would be with the former USSR ... North Korea has virtually no weapons development beyond its nuclear weaponry and ballistic missile technology, all of which are demonstrated pretty frequently.
