Antonov An-148
Tupolev 204
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?

Superjet100 similar to Do728
AN-148 similar to BAe-146 NRA (twin-engined project)

While the Russian planes do have a striking resemblance in overall configuration, the design of the airframes and systems is clearly indigenous.

I am not so sure whether the same can be said about the ARJ21, the MA700 and the C919.

C919 = 757
ARJ21 = DC-9/717
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.
