Re: CHinese indigenious new large conveyer ,Y20, to start test-flight in severa days

If the images portrayed by China's Xinhua news agency were accurate, China's jetliner for the 21st century looked suspiciously like a Russian military transport from the 1970s. The high-wing, high-tailed creation, with its multiple banks of landing gear trucks clustered under the fuselage, looks like the big Antonovs that still toil as chartered military cargo aircraft. It looked nothing like the sleek shape of the Boeing 787 that many consider the technology driver of the next generation of commercial airliners.

Y-XX / Y-20??? / C919 Military Variant

Why does India buy C-17 instead of B787 for its air force?

If one looks at the photo posted of Y 20, it does look like a larger IL 76.

Re: CHinese indigenious new large conveyer ,Y20, to start test-flight in severa days

Actually, I don't know it all. In your original post, you are implying that Y-20 is built using old technology and B787 represents the future. India paid $4b for 10 C-17, about 400 million per plane. On the other hand, B787 costs around 150-200 million. I am asking your opinion on why India paid more to buy planes of old technology.

Accepting your numbers for costs, 787 and C-17 have quite different specifications, systems, and roles. How can they be compared in this discussion?

XAC 'Y-20' (China) - Jane's All the World's Aircraft

XAC 'Y-20' (China), Aircraft - Fixed-wing - Military

Type
Medium transport/multirole.

Programme
Announced by AVIC President on 5 November 2009 that China was to 'demonstrate' a new military transport in December 2009. A series of artist's impressions of an aircraft allegedly designated 'Y-20' was, duly, published on an aviation enthusiasts' website (not an unusual forum for Chinese official photograph releases) on 25 December, although these differed in minor detail from pictures of a scale model of the same project which had come to light, less dramatically, slightly earlier. These images were different, again, from drawings dating from late 2008, which showed an aircraft having a low tailplane and a fuselage shape tending to support statements that it had been designed with inputs from Antonov, designer of the An-70. The latest image consensus shows a design conforming more to current trends for such a type of aircraft - notably the Boeing C-17 and twin-jet Embraer KC-390 and Kawasaki C-2. In the US, in July 2009, a former Boeing employee was convicted of selling C-17 technical details to China.Design reportedly initiated in about 2005, involving input from No. 603 Institute and "some technology" from Il-76. Reported that rear fuselage for prototype was under construction at SAC (Shaanxi) by end of 2009; maiden flight targeted for 2012.Rumoured designation Y-20 not confirmed. Following details provisional and unconfirmed:
