Come on, they have their taste improved in the recent years as being proved by the paintings they have done with WZ10 and J20.

Someone else just said Y20 is a copy of Boeing C17 Globe master. then I am wondering how much resemblance do C17 and IL76 share? Between C17 and IL-76, which one is the original and which one is the copy?
In Indian's eye, they are all copy each other. Brave Indian!

Is Boeing copy Airbus, or Airbus copy Boeing?

In the end, the one who doesnt copy pays a fortune for foreign planes. At least they have got a deep pocket.

The fake CGI looks more like a C-17, but seeing the real thing it looks more like an IL-76 hybrid.

To me, which one Y20 resembles more really doesn't matter, all of the major transport aircrafts look simliar in their appearances.

We build and it flys, that is all that matters!

What matters is its performance. She is running on D-30s so it will more or less fly like a legacy IL-76.

Being able to build a plane like IL76 is already a big accomplishment, how many countries on earth is able to build a heavy transport aircraft? Only US, Russia and Japan. Europe has to put all the countries together to build one.

The strategy is simple, first you learn to build one, then you better your skills and build a better one. Performance will be the main concern after we grasp all the skills

Most of the designers who took part in the Y-20 programme are aged between 30 and 35。
