    A good question. At least with the testbed I don't think so since it is indeed based on a modified MA60/Y-7 ... however we all know that the L-15/JL-10 was designed based on the Yak-130, the L-7 based on the Yak-152 .... so there is or was indeed some cooperation.

    Is there a turboprop AEW&C design in the works?

    looks more like a shrunken version of the Yak-44E with a 6-bladed prop

    just for fun.

    oh no those Chinos are cloning f-16s!






    relax it is just some foreign technology analysis work.

    compare tunnel interior to that that we've definitely seen before in connection to other Chinese projects
    ...

    Yeah looks like that old NF-3 lowspeed tunnel in Mianyang in Sichuan Province.

    There is no point reinventing what's already working. To master it is the true challenge...
    One thing is sure, the US isn't going to like to see these thing flying since it's thank to AWACs platform they have such advantage over most potential enemies.

    Oh man, those chinos are clonning everything. You're right flateric, it is deffinetely a chinese model, or at least a yankee model inside a chinese wind tunnel! That last seccion with a single window to the bottom left makes the diagnostic.

    It will be very weird to see the actual plane once more photos are available, and even weirder to see them from a chinese CATOBAR.

    Saludos Flateric.

    Thank you for the clarification Flateric. I wasn't sure, hence I wrote suppossed on my post. It is clear that it is an E2 then, yet that chinese mistery plane is quite similar.

    Here is the link from where I got the picture: http://alert5.com/2011/05/09/photo-w...inese-hawkeye/

    Of course. In this universe, this is E-2D WT model in BLR Aerospace wind tunnel.

    Of cause.

    I guess they are going for some CATOBAR CVs after the STOBAR.

    I am not sure it is a copy. They didn't have a E-2 and even if the configuration looks same you may find a lot of details coming from Y-7/An-24 than a E-2.

    May be the reason they went for a turbo-prop solution is in engines after all.

    They do have a working reliable 5000 hp Turboprop. They don't have a good working CF34 class high by-pass-turbofan.

    And carrier planes such as these, HQ typically gets squeezed out from every which way.
