During my morning stroll through China’s defence web sites Icame across what could be yet another version of the Shaanxi Y-8, thefour-engined turboprop that China seems to adapt to every role imaginable.
The bulges on the right side of the fuselage suggest side-lookingsynthetic aperture radar, but not sure about the winglets on the tips of the horizontalstabilizers, or the large wing-tip fairings.
Coincidentally this image has emerged just a few days afterphotos of what could be a tested for a new carrier-borne AEW&C aircraft.
Never a dull moment following China.
