China inducts largest homegrown Y-20 military transport plane

China has inducted its largest indigenously-built transport aircraft, which is named as Y-20. Y-20 is a breakthrough in military aviation technology for the PLA that allows the world’s largest force to transport cargo and troops over long distances in diverse weather conditions. The Y-20 entering into service marks a crucial step for the Air Force improving its strategic power projection capability. It is also regarded as a major breakthrough in military aviation technology for the PLA which is more reliant on Russian-made planes so far.

The Y-20 which can carry a maximum take off weight of 200 tonnes, has officially joined the PLA Air Force in Chengdu. It is ideal for transporting cargo and personnel over long distances in diverse weather conditions. The indigenously designed and developed Y-20 took its maiden flight in January 2013 and made its debut at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition in November 2014. The plane is comparable to the Russian-made IL-76 and the US C-17. PLA officials earlier said Y-20 is more advanced than the IL-476.

So let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. Name the China’s largest homegrown military transport plane which has been inducted recently?
2. The Y-20 military transport plane has been developed by which country?
