    Its also used by a few countries ( I think the UAE and Thai) in the form of the S70I Battlehawk.

    The pylons can be used to stow extra fuel or weapons.

    More high-resolution images, with serial numbers erased. Two of these have been shared before (with serial numbers intact), but they were of lower-resolution.

    In Germany we would say: "Brrrr, Brauner, ruhig ....!" (in mind of horse-riding ... calm down and relax!

    So far there is neither a Type 075 ready, nor does the to be established Marine Corps has its own helicopters and the first Z-20s were jest delivered to AA units.

    And in Scotland we say Rome was not built in a day or do they say that in Italy :eek: anyway a out of context statement

    Marine aviation does not exist and won’t become a fully fledged unit over night it takes years to establish naval helicopter unit

    LHD is here they have had years to plan yet nothing

    Just like CV-17 this LHD will probably sail around without any serious rotary wing for which it was designed

    Until now all naval warship deployments have borrowed helicopters from naval aviation units scattered across the country

    CV-18 and even CV-19 are coming, and still without helicopters?

    A Z20 mock up with folded rotor blades has been sighted on a type 055 destroyer under out-fitting, which indicate a naval variant of Z20 is ready to be stationed on type 055, type 052DG and type 071 LPD.

    Interesting remark on Huitong's Chinese Military Aviation, described it as Z20F?, a ASW version that first flew in late 2018.
