外文标题：CHINA AND RUSSIA JOIN FORCES TO BUILD NEW JUMBO JET
C929 United Aircraft Corporation This is the first official concept art of the new Sino-Russian jumbo jet, which can seat up to 280 passengers (stretched versions can probably carry 350 passengers).
China and Russia are taking their high tech relationship to the next level, as the preliminary design for their jumbo jet will be completed by July. The C929 will be China's ever largest civilian aircraft, and Russia's largest post-Cold War jetliner.
Wonder the role of Russian in the new jumbo jet.
Doesn't Russia have 3D printing technology and reliable engines for that?
Good question bro. lol Well Russia's engine tech still lags far behind that of the U.K/U.S and even France. Reason they wont be using their Soviet era engines to power such a sophisticated jet liner. They need more time to design such a sophisticated engine for such a crucial civilian aircraft . Better to use proven/reliable enginesso this aircraft can be sucessful. So i will say the Russians made a good decision BOQ
lol, France hasn't even built any military aircraft engine which is comparable to AL-31 or WS-10, neither is the UK.
