Rare images of Z-10s in the rain. All photos are high-resolution.
We went with the T129 before the sanctions on Turkey. No official word has come out yet on what happens next.@Mohsin77 I'd like to ask you why Pakistan initially rejected the Z-10 and still hasn't expressed interest in it to this day. I understand that there were rumours that the initial variants had weak (~900kW) engines. The most recent confirmation on the WZ-9's power is ~1100kW since 2016, and I imagine that the most recent variants of the helicopter (Z-10ME, and the ones in PLA service with upturned exhausts) have bumped that up to ~1200kW. Engine power is clearly no longer an issue. Meanwhile in Turkey, the T129 Pakistan chose instead doesn't have an engine thanks to American sanctions. So why isn't Pakistan dumping the T129 and going with the Z-10?
