Just curious, but do China have any Z-18 replacement in the works aside from the rumored joint venture with Russia for a new heavy helicopter?

The heavy helicopter is CH53K class, totally different from Z18, so it's not a replacement. I think the new project is just the Z18L, the wide body one.

This appears to be the official AVIC model of Z-8L.




Looks like a Chinese version of Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone with 3 engines instead of 2. Anyone knows what engine Z-8L use? I'm interested in comparing their total engine power.
