    Because Canada only offered six engines before being banned from doing business with China.

    I am serious here, the WZ-10 design was done by Kamov of Russia.

    Kamov completed the project 941 for China and handed over the design that became WZ-10.

    The Changhe Aircraft WZ-10 attack helicopter is based on a Russian design commissioned by the Chinese, Kamov's chief design engineer says.

    In 1995, Kamov developed a preliminary design in the 6t weight class under a contract with the Chinese government, says Sergey Mikheev, Kamov's chief design engineer, speaking at the Heli-Expo trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    The Project 941 design was not based on any Soviet-era attack helicopter project and was strictly designed for China's unique requirements, Mikheev says. "They gave us the desired weight, we discussed preliminary performance parameters, then we signed a contract and we fulfilled the contract," he says.

    After Kamov completed the design, the Russian design bureau verified the design via testing. Kamov then delivered the design to China and the Project 941 concept was accepted by that country's government for further development, he says. Kamov did not participate in any further developmental work on the WZ-10, he insists.

    The engineering design process is a multi-step process including the research, conceptualization, feasibility assessment, establishing design requirements, preliminary design, detailed design, production planning and tool design, and finally production.

    No need to waste your time to explain... if they said this is a copy or designed by Russian, then let it be.

    That is good, see, this is easy. You believe yours I believe mine. Why you wanted to force me accept your "truth"? It looks to me, Indian does not understand freedom.

    There is nothing to force or impose... fact is fact ... and that does not take away hard work done by Chinese engineers…
