Shrouded in secrecy, output from the Chinese aviation industry was, until recently, largely unknown in the West. This first-ever book on Chinese military aircraft offers comprehensive insight into the Chinese aviation industry, including secret projects and China's aircraft in overseas service. Provides a full description of all aircraft types including the Shaanxi Y8, the Chengdu JF-17 (FC-1) light fighter, which is now entering service with the Pakistan Air Force, the Shenyang J-10, and the KJ-2000 AWACS aircraft based on the Il'yushin IL-76. Numerous color profiles and three-view drawings are also included, along with the logos of production enterprises and design institutions. Virtually every photograph is previously unpublished outside of China.
