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.

Curious.... The Russian Soloviev D-30 was a modern turbofan aircraft engine in.... The 1980's!! Why design a 'new' C-17 clone around an antique? Is the Chinese aviation industry not capable of developing its own high efficiency jet engines in the 21st Century?
