For the first time, a military transporter of the Chinese Air Force Y-20 flew to Russia

78

Recently, information appeared in the western blogosphere that Chinese fifth-generation J-20 fighters for the first time will fly to Moscow to participate in the airborne part of the Victory Parade. As it turns out, the Eurobloggers messed up. This is not about J-20 fighters, but the Y-20 military transport aircraft.


This plane landed at Sheremetyevo Airport last Saturday, June 13, bringing to Russia soldiers of the guard of honor - 105 people.

The Chinese Ministry of Defense notes that this is the first flight of a Y-20 transport plane from China to Moscow.

From the message of the press service of the PLA command:

The first flight of the Y-20 to Russia showed that it had revealed its potential for long missions.

The Xian Y-20 aircraft made its first flight in 2016. Earlier, China used mainly military transport aircraft of the Soviet (Russian) production - IL-76.

Y-20 crew - 3 people. The maximum take-off weight is 220 tons with a maximum payload of 66 tons. At the same time, it is not yet said in China whether the Y-20 switched to Chinese-made WS-18 engines, as indicated in the plans. Initial versions of Chinese transporters use Russian D-30-KP2 engines. The Y-20 flight range is designated as 7,8 thousand km, and with a maximum payload it does not exceed 4,5 thousand km.

The CCTV report says that flight number 20041 was sent to Moscow. This aircraft in China itself is known for having made its first flight to Wuhan after the city was quarantined on February 13.

Director of the Center for Central Asian Studies Liu Wendu:

At this special time (during the pandemic), the Chinese side sends troops to Russia to participate in the parade. This indicates China’s important support for Russia and demonstrates the high level of military cooperation between the two countries.

          I have no relation to aviation, so tell me who knows, what, apart from the width of the fuselage and 10% increased payload, is the Y-20 different from the IL -76MD? What are the Chinese made a breakthrough?

            By this very thing - the fuselage cross section and the payload, and perhaps even a larger wing area (if you do not lie with the payload, because move it from Il-76).

                To this day they have been in trial operation with them - far from flying.
                Here is a breakthrough.
                And he’s no better than the IL-76 - ours is reliable and tested.
                Theirs is a novelty with unclear potential and problems.

          "Shagistika" in this case is sixteenth. For China, this date means virtually nothing, and the participation of PLA troops in the parade does not make sense that would have participated in the September 3 parade. More importantly, the parade will be held under the symbols of "democratic choice" (a tricolor instead of a red banner and disguised symbols of the USSR).

                Mb they don’t have a commander and navigator, only 3 technicians - a bortach, a ground and a radio operator, fly like that. And we, perhaps, have 2 flight attendants (in dreams), or 100-200 full-time, included in the crew of paratroopers. What is measured by the number of crew, if Hsien Wai, A-50, IL-78 - all this is essentially IL-76.

    Y-20 is a complete analogue of IL-76, only a larger cargo compartment.

    No. Rather, a collective image with D-30KP engines.

      It is strange that the Chinese did not immediately make it under the PS90.

      exo (alexey), you need to compare the wing, how identical it is to the IL-76.

    For me, the plane is the engines (believe the PIC, which started on the ARK-9, you know tititati, I still read calmly ...?) D-30 - super, "KU" - even better ... Glider high-wing with nega imagery - God himself commanded, for there is an abundance of lateral stability) Further in the Chinese "consumer goods" - I have no doubt they will fake ...

    More similar to the S-17 than the IL-76.

    The tail unit is from there. The nose part is somewhat similar to the An-70. The wing, as they say on the forums: modified from the IL-76.
    Engines, at least PS-90, are requested. But, China is focusing on its future developments.

      Antonov Design Bureau took part in the development
      At present, the American media openly say that the wing for the new Chinese aircraft was designed in Ukraine in the famous Antonov Design Bureau. At the same time, Voice of Russia published a statement stating that the unrealized project of the An-20 heavy military transport aircraft formed the basis of the Y-170.

        The cargo ramp is definitely the brainchild of Antonov Design Bureau.

      Perhaps the PS-90 was not considered for two reasons - the unification of the Y-20 and H-6 engines. And the PS-90 was under patent control by P&W.

        Under the patent there was a PS-90 modification with a “long shaft” (this is exactly the Pratt technology), without an inter-shaft bearing. A distinctive feature of Solovyov’s engines. And their weak spot. I don’t remember what letters this PS-90 modification had .

          ... the right to it already belongs to the Russian Federation. Bought, sort of.

          Here is the first comment on the topic !! "Such people, maybe more, brothers ,,," (c) ... Kiev, Moscow Aviation Institute, Peter? In my opinion M1 ... But - inter-shaft - gave the whole supply ... NO?

            The modification was called PS-90A2. It was with these engines that Iran was ready to buy the Tu-204. But, due to the US ban, we were unable to sell.

              It was a good car because of the lengthening, well, essno - of the engines ... Pratts, apparently, weren’t squeezed under watered ... There the throttle ratio went up to 1.8 .... put 0.66 - and 900 - in your pocket ... 980 (like watermelons, with a little stress ...)

    Is it the An-70 with DTRD or what?

    Apparently, not everyone understood the meaning: the analogue is not a copy.

    And China was forced to develop such an aircraft on its own, after the failure of the supply of 30 Tashkent Il-76.
