Great aircraft, and probably a lot cheaper then C-17.
I hope they export it.

What an amazing mid-size jet airlifter! But I wonder if the planned Embraer jet airlifter can really compete against this superb Kawasaki XC-2. Resembling the Kawasaki C-1, the Embraer looks a bit underpowered and small compared to the Japanese and Russian military jet airlifters variety already in the flight test stage or in production. All the best to all three!

What a cute little "baby" C-17! The resemblance is uncanny! The rear fuselage, the tail, the strakes! It just needs winglets!

Very pretty transport aircraft, actually. Slender and indeed like a baby C-17.
