It’s a mix between the A350 and 787. They should redesign it

That isn’t but according to Wikipedia, it’s first flight will be in 2023(projected)

Looks like they just stole a 787 and renamed it. What benefits does this have over it?

They design their own aircraft base on the model of A350 and B787. It has a 3-class seating

Looks to me like it will be a knockoff 787 with no good advantage.

Is that the only advantage?

Look up the aircraft on Wikipedia or look up the aircraft’s advantage on google. I don’t know anymore about the aircraft’s advantage.

Honestly it looks like a 787 and an Airbus. It’s funny how all the other countries follow the US and EU to design aircraft

You can see this all through Chinese industry, I remember seeing a thing about how the Chinese basically copy popular European cars and deny any similarities when they are called out for it.

No its not autocorrect, its claimed to be 5th Gen but it actually only has the Characteristics of a 3rd Gen and not the best third Gen honestly. Its not stealth.
