Sukhoi Superjet 100
Surely I am not the only person to notice distinct similarities between these beautiful new types emerging from the likes of Antonov, Tupolev and Sukhoi and types produced by other manufacturers in the USA, England and Brazil or Canada?
Perhaps the currency that the aircraft would be paid for with and or production costs lower than in the west will make these machines even more attractive, are they likely to gain more interest from the west than in the past?

Quoting KPDX (Reply 4): MA700 = AN-26 (I could be reaching but it does look similar.
The MA60/600 is the An-26 clone. MA700 is a chinese copy (pun intended) of the ATR72.
I'd expect the C919 to be "broadly similar" to the A320, may be with a larger wing designed by someone who has the capabilities to do so, say, Antonov.
