    Chinese Wing-in-Ground Effect Vehicles - Ekranoplans in PLA service

    One of the probably most unique - and barely known in the West - type in PLA service is the XTW-5 WIG (XTW = 信天翁 XìnTiānWēng = Albatros). From what I know - most of all from this site: http://www.eastpendulum.com/chinese-wing-in-ground - it entered service in 2003 within the PLA Border Defence...

    J-XY - maybe J-35 - next generation carrier-borne fighter

    Since in recent days the rumours are again getting more and more intense, some even speaking of a F-20-variant having already won, while others still take the decision not made yet, I anyway start a new thread. Here are at least a few posts that hint into that direction ...

    Chinese Naval Air Force (PLANAF) News & Discussions

    Just akin to the PLAAF-thread please post all PLANAF-related news here. Just to start with, it seems as if the PLANAF is now also changing to the Brigade system: via: http://news.xinhuanet.com/mil/2017-09/06/c_129696927.htm and http://news.sina.com.cn/o/2017-09-06/doc-ifykpuui1321709.shtml

    The J-20-engine discussion is over and other speculative topics ... to separate from the J-20-news !

    Guys ... this discussion is useless, senseless ... and IMO already off-topic in the J-20 tread. Therefore I created this new thread in order to separate the on-going and already so often discussed question on the J-20's powerplant from the other J-20 news but also from the engine's thread I...

    CV-16 Liaoning - Type 001 Aircraft Carrier News & Discussions

    I think it is really strange - and maybe also my own fault - that we have several PLN-news threads, two dedicated 001A & 002 carrier topics but none for the Liaoning. If I find time, I will clean and sort out the others a bit ... but I would recommend from now on all related to the CV-16 to...

    Chinese specific test- and research aircraft - some sort of X-planes ?

    The title already says it all, since I wonder why there were so few dedicated test-bed concepts by now - I remember the BW-6 FBW-testbed, the J-7FS with the chin intake ... ? - and if a program similar to the USAF/NASA led X-series would be a good idea to explore certain technologies ? Any...

    PLAAF & PLANAF special mission aircraft - Y-8GX-family

    Since usually images of these birds are either posted in the PLN- or the PLAAF-threads, which I don't deem appropriate, I start a new dedicated thread for these IMO most important special mission assets. To start with, here are some very nice images, however IMO the KJ-500H and Y-8GX-6 both...
