The Xi'an Y-20 (Yùn-20; lit. 'transport-20') is a large military transport aircraft. The project is being developed by Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation and was officially launched in 2006. The official codename of the aircraft is Kunpeng, after the mythical bird that can fly for thousands of miles. However, within the Chinese aviation industry itself, the aircraft is more commonly known by its nickname Chubby Girl, because its fuselage is much wider compared to other Chinese aircraft.

Any idea what the Y-20s performance is like compared to the C-17? And second, what are the two aircraft under wraps behind the Y-20s? Great photo.

For me, this is a child of S-17 and IL-76. :) In my opinion, it turned out to be a very nice plane. Shenyang J-16 "Red Eagle" fighters are in the background.

And Antonov's specialists also had a hand in the appearance of this aircraft, as far as I know ..

Nice picture, but you will have to make up your mind: Shaanxi Y-20 or Xi'an Y-20 ?!

Xi'an would probably be correct after all, but historically Shaanxi is registered in the database.
