Can the Z-10ME on it own stand up to heavier counterparts such as AH-64 or MI-28NM?

  1. Z-10ME is the worst out of the three

    These small particularly shaped and placed add-on armor pieces have been photographed on PLA Z-10's so they are not just for the export version. These are PLA Z-10's which don't have the engine inlet and exhaust improvements the export version has. Just noting additional observations.

    Can someone enlighten me what is the use of the "ticket booth sliding window" that is present by both positions in the Z-10 canopy?

    best guess is its for hand offs of orders and messages felt not secure over radio, the occasional candy bar, a bottle of water, and sticking a pistol out and shooting in the event of a refuelling point being over run.

    Official AVIC marketing brochure for the Z-10ME... So the honeycomb like features on the intake are sand filters, similar to the intake design for the CH-53E Super Stallion.

    While the discussion is still on the engines and thrust to weight ratio, I came across this data from twitter: it claims WZ 16 is in service with Z 10ME.

    Highly unlikely. The official AVIC promotional sheet gives an power output of 965 kW (or was it even 935 onl?) ... and this is said to be the uprated variant of the WZ-9.
