Is China working on any aircraft similar to F-35 for LHD?
only helicopters for 075 for the present.

one more clearer pic. radar has been installed. there are conflicting speculations about the first Type 075's tonnage (full load). some say it's 32,000~35,000 t while others say it's 35,000~ 40,000 t. latest sources claim it may be launched within one month.
