The plane went to Pakistan one day after NATO attack.
Can you give credible details?? The rotodome looks kind of small.
it's a very old "news", and our Pakistani brothers better do a good job in protecting it, last time, some terrorists sneak in and blow the PC-3 into pieces.
Isn't this based on an old 1974 Russiann design??
why didn't you protect your brothers during that ?? you chinese were there snooping around. And also during NATO attacks?? 2 more examples of all talk no action by hot shot chinese loud mouths.
All I can tell you is the pic is real, there are a lot more in CD from different angle, and the pic is took at a west end airport, very close to Pakistan, is that credible enough? All the latest news or progress related with Chinese defence are from Chinese forum, way ealier than from shitty magzines like Janes, Aviation weekly or Kanwa.
Regarding the rotodome, you think you are a better person to judge that than Pakistan and China's military experts?
This is a credible source?? Yes I am a better judge for guys who cannot detect a helicopter flying halfway across their country to kil Osama Bin Laden and guys who have no radar to pick a NATO helicopter that killed their soldiers.
Pakistan will not be able to datalink this to any US warplane so in many ways this is great for India.
good for Indian, one less thing to worry.
Just a reminder, I heard PAF will build the air force based on Their own fighters.
It certainly is not you, when US takes it apart more details will be revealed.
so scary!! woo hooo
We would not want it any other way. Suits us well indeed.
Only if the nation is still around in one piece.
Thats heartening to hear.
Our only worry was fighting falcons.
We are more than happy if they replace all of them with their own fighters even double in numbers.
Yes, its based on russian AN-12 platform. What you can expect from Chinese....
Nope! This is yet another derivative of the Y9 transport, which is INDIGENOUS to the PRC baby. I really cant think of a 1970's russian aircraft that looks like this.
Y9 is derivative of Y8
Y-8 derivative of An-12
AN-12 looks like that. All you have done is made some cosmetic changes especially in nose.. This is what you good at
Indigenous...my foot.. you people are just mere copy cat.
look from where your indegenous Y9 come from
