•There will be at least two batches of 075 and the second batch will be an improved one (075A?).
•We might see the third of the class within 6 months which will conclude the first batch.
•The second batch will consist of two ships (at least we know of).
Well judging by recent report of component maker for Turbo shaft engine they planed for 450 WZ 10 engine in 2020 forward. So assuming 50 engine for spare and 2 engine for each of Z20 helicopter We are looking for 200 helicopter production run in years to come . Assuming production batches of 40 to 50 helicopter per years should be completed in 4 years . Some of them might be intended for the army. The type 75 will not enter service in 2years then come the shake down cruise for another year So it is about the right time .What is the current status of naval Helicopter building for the PLAN then?
Zero or almost non existentWhat is the current status of naval Helicopter building for the PLAN then?
