原文标题：China successfully tests jumbo cargo plane
BEIJING: China today said it has successfully conducted the test flight of its first country made jumbo air-freighter, capable of handling various air transportation tasks.
The Yun-20, or Transport-20, is a huge, multi-function airfreighter which can perform various long-distance air transportation tasks targeting cargo and passengers, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.
The successful maiden flight of Yun-20 is significant in promoting China's economic and national defence buildup as well as bettering its emergency handling such as disaster relief and humanitarian aid, it said.
The giant aircraft will continue to undergo experiments and test flights as scheduled, the report said.
The new plane adds to the new stealth and carrier landing fighters said to have been developed by China in recent months.

Whether its a fighter or a freight carrier? Can china elaborate. What's it's useful payload capacity? Whether this new invention a Russian or American rip off?

This is a military transport plane similar to Boeing C17 which can also used for civilian purposes.

credit must go to china for developing and producing high teh instead of importing. india must do the same and develop own high tech industry and rely less on imports. india has the brains and man power but it lacks the infrastructure to utilise the telents.

and what is India doing? We always compare India with China in Development but unfortunately our youth is just busy in raping women and chating on facebook. And our media makes us beleive that we are at par with other emerging countries.

Readers must know that China pirated technology from WWII planes and Russian jets for developing their version of planes.They have advanced in chip-set technology but USA is still sceptical about their ablities saying that they are reverse engineered technology ........................ But PLA is absolutely corrupt ,much corrupt than Indian Army.

This is just a re-engineered Chinese version of the Russian Ilyushin 76. China can never make anything by itself.

Yes, very true. Unlike the Chinese, India makes everything by itself, including aircraft carrier, nuclear submarine, 5th generation stealth fighter, jumbo commercial aero planes and world's most advanced military helicopters.

Jumbo Cargo Plane is another feather in the cap of Chaina's military might. When other countries are busy with internal bickerings Chaina is silently improving it's capability.

A shame for India who is unable to manufacture civilian planes. Even Brazil manufactures it.

Whatever China is doing should not affect India. We enjoy our bullock carts, motor bikes and Tata cars. Why should we always compare ourselves with the Chinese. They are a bunch of atheists, who do nothing but work. We enjoy our Indian way of life, spiritual and happy. We think we are superior, therefore we are superior. I think therefore I am!
