China Orders 1,000 Heavy Transport Aircraft “Based On The Experience Of The United States And Russia”

You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.

Ezekiel 38: 16


As tensions escalate to dangerous levels in the South China Sea and in eastern Europe, an interesting decision has been made be the Chinese government.

According to Sputnik, back in January the People’s Liberation Army Air Force was preparing to develop a new fleet of stealth fighters and heavy transport aircraft. The heavy transport aircraft, the Xian Y-20 transport, was going to be built in order to give Beijing a “fast and reliable platform” to deliver arms and soldiers over long distances.

During a technology exhibition in Beijing, Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) elaborated on the governments plans for the Y-20. Although originally thought that Beijing would want only 400,  “More than 1,000 Y-20s will be needed” said Zhu Qian, head of AVIC’s large aircraft development office – the reason? “Based on the experience of the United States and Russia” Zhu says.

Now that’s an interesting nugget of information. So due to the fact that the US and Russia are at odds, China needs 1,000 heavy transport aircraftwhy would that be, is China planning on getting involved if ever the US and Russia got into a military dispute?

So to summarize, due to what’s happening between Russia and the United States, China has ordered nearly triple the amount of heavy transport aircraft it originally intended so that it could take tanks and other military equipment anywhere in Europe.
