    Weapons are meant to be used, not meant to be a thing to brag about.
    不管黑猫白猫,能抓老鼠就是好猫。Black cat or white cat, a cat that catches the mouse is a good cat.
    National defense is a matter of life and death for our people. As long as it serves that purpose well, I don't care by which mean it does its job.

    So it seems as if the PLA Army Aviation aerial demonstration team has also received some Z-20s.

    China’s Z-20 chopper features fly-by-wire

    "“The handling of the Z-20 is more sensitive, as it is China’s first domestically made helicopter to use a fly-by-wire control system,” Z-20 pilot Song Xinning told China Central Television (CCTV)."

    [Does this imply that Z-10 does not use a fly-by-wire control system?]

    "The Black Hawk, a US utility helicopter with which the 10-ton Z-20 is often compared (some even call the Z-20 “the Copy Hawk”), also saw an experimental fly-by-wire retrofit in June, which enabled the chopper to become optionally piloted, according to a statement released in June on the website of Lockheed Martin, parent company of Black Hawk maker Sikorsky."
