New Chinese large military transport aircraft Yun-20 could enter in service for 2018

The Chinese-made first jumbo airfreighter is set for take-off into official service, its chief designer said weeks after its successful maiden test flight. When fitted with Chinese-designed and manufactured engines, the Yun-20, or Transport-20, will have a greater take-off weight, longer fuselage and carry more cargo, said Tang Changhong, who has led the design team of the jumbo aircraft since 2007.
