    Perhaps this thread could be updated as the event nears its debut?

    According to recent reports, some of the new equipment at the exhibition this year would include:
    - A new exhibition from the Chinese Aviation Engine Group Co., Ltd.
    - LY-80N surface-to-air missile
    - CM-302 supersonic anti-ship missile
    - CH-5 UCAV

    The show is also rumored to be centered around the "20 series". I take it that the phrase refers to the Z-20, Y-20, and possibly J-20.

    I sincerely hope CH 5 is going to be displayed in a configuration showing incoming readiness for PLAAF adoption or placing it on the export list along with other drones

    Since, if one remembers CH 5 on China TV, had no sensor turret and payload hardpoints

    Eagerly waiting to see if CH 5 on an airshow will feature these along with the range of missiles and bombs

    Me too, but I think then we will have to wait until Zhuhai 2026 maybe.

    In consequence I would be already more than happy to see a J-20A - with serials ! :p - and I'm eagerly awaiting more on the Z-20.

    I have a feeling they might fly either J-20 2001 or 2002 to Zhuhai

    I think you may have a chance however the H20 will be made of plastic and in 1/32 scale ;)
    At this point that's good enough for me!

    Agreed. A model would suffice.
