Again I'm confused by this post I just found at Huitong's CMA-Blog: :oops:

"It was first rumored in mid-2020 that the next generation ASW aircraft (Y-9Q/High New 14?) based on Y-8Q was being developed at SAC for PLAN. First flight of Y-9Q is expected in 2021."

Any idea how this differs to a standard KQ-200/Y-8Q Cub/GX-6? (Image by GE via Huitong's CMA-Blog)

The nose appears different. Could house a new AESA radar.

Indeed, that's the most obvious difference as well as the SATCOM dome we've seen already refitted.

By the way, what happened to Your Weibo account?

Does anyone has information about the y-20 version of KJ-2000 (perhabs named KJ-3000)? any ideia about its possible radar?

Ive heard about the refueling version of Y-20 but nothing on the AWAC variant. I think China is happy with KJ-500 for now.
