It's based on this photo, simply mirrored and rotated.
Looks like those prototype airframes to me, or are they the LRIP airframes but the prototype paint scheme carried forward to to the production model?
However, the "632" has different antenna at the tailboom, and those "636" "666" "632" have no wirecutter installed on the front landing gears?
666 is fake
Seems to be from this video:
I hope Z-20 makes its debut at the National Day parade later this year.
One of the best images of a Z-20 seen so far. Via LKJ86/PDF
Images of the first two operational Z-20s were posted today with full PLA serial numbers. With the numbers LH953201 & LH953205 they are assigned to the 161st Air Assault Brigade within the CTC.
You know I didn't notice it before but Z20 has a small stub just above the door line between the Machine gunners window and the sliding door. That looks almost like the stubs used to mount External stores on the Blackhawk.
I wonder if down the line the PLA would introduce an attack version.
Could be for external ferry fuel tanks, but attack version? I know UH-60 have something like that, the MH-60L DAP, but I don't think we'd see such thing anytime soon, as the PLA needs for utility transport airframe preceeds all other things, and perhaps after enough baseline Z-20 fill the ranks and even take over from Z-9 or Mi-171, those surplus airframes could the be customised for such "riding shotgun" role...?
