Still no clue on what engines it uses.
According to wiki it is a “WZ-10” turboshaft engine. Confusing naming since an attack helicopter is named the same...
Wiki is a poor source. At best a cheat. WZ if I remember correctly is the proper for an Engine of Chinese make but not the attack chopper, that properly should be Z10.
Still no unit numbers. Is this a production plane or another prototype ? The stealth on the Z-20 must be better than on the J-20 since we don't see it as often!
I'd say most chances are Z-20 is in testing phase still. It may have finished most of development and some pre-serial batches may have been made and various airframes are serving with PLA, being tested. But perhaps not all feedback from the testing has been implemented yet and full scale serial production hasn't started yet.
yes but we need to see naval Z20 soon
Type 055 are coming online in big numbers, dual hanger each
a serious number of helos required
Don't get your hopes up yet. The PLA seems to be taking its time.
Interesting comparison of the Z-20 prototypes no. 632 and 636: Slowly the images are getting better and better ... can't wait to see the first Z-20 in full PLA LH serials

Another one with IMO 636 ps'ed to 666
