The Xian Y-20 Kunpeng is a four-engine transport aircraft designed to bolster the People s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) s strategic airlift capability. While China matures its own WS-20 engine for the project, early production Y-20s are powered by Russian UEC Saturn D-30KP-2 turbofan engines supplying 26,455 lbf. (117.7 kN) of thrust each at takeoff. The Y-20 is similar in configuration and role to the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III.
