    Eva Zheng is as credible as Minnie Chan.

    Interesting info about the WZ-9 from gongke101:

    Main points:
    • WZ-9 is the first Chinese aeroengine to have FADEC
    • It was given design certification in 2010 after undergoing 7000 hours of ground tests and 1000 hours of flight tests
    • The potential of the WZ-9's design is high and expansion of the permissible flight envelope is easy with FADEC; just input higher values into the computer
    • The WZ-9 is the first engine China developed completely from scratch, the second is the WS-15
    • Taking into account China's relative backwardness at the time, the initial projected performance parameters were set very conservatively
    • The operating parameters of the MTR390 were used as a baseline for the WZ-9 but the latter cannot match the former in materials quality
    • The WZ-9 is referred to by its designers as a 2.5th generation turboshaft and a bump to 3rd generation can be achieved by future variants of the WZ-9
    • The AES1000, a civilian engine promoted at Zhuhai, is probably a WZ-9 that was downrated to increase reliability
    • Nominal power values are given for 100% RPM but the PLA often only take their engines to a lower RPM, say 98%, until the engine is mature
    • WZ-9s supplied since 2016 have a maximum power of close to 1100 kW, some 200 kW higher than the early WZ-9s with their 900 kW

    so now we are going to hopefully see a naval helicopter brigade formed just like the land based army aviation brigades

    China needs at least 2 full strength rotary wing brigades for the navy

    so many ships and decks hardly any helicopters

    have no idea why the army gets so many units yet navy who actually needs them is neglected

    A rare look at Z-10's ammo compartment and magazine, which feeds into the nose gun.
