World Wide Web news: published in June 2012, Han Defense Review in Harbin frequently appeared the WZ19 armed helicopter test flight, an the WZ19 even installed the millimeter-wave radar. WZ19 very used to gradually replace current WZ9G, and fielded Army Aviation In this sense, the WZ19 still have good market prospects, 21 army, only 10 army group with the land Streams/group, attack helicopters insufficient number of 250. Advanced the WZ10 not more than one brigade.
Han Dynasty, and that WZ19 WZ10 less likely to constitute a competitive relationship, by Chinese standards, which is advanced helicopter gunships. WZ19 is most likely the pursuit of lower prices, to facilitate the mass deployment. July 14, 2011, satellite images show, Harbin Aircraft Factory still did not produce a large number of WZ9 series helicopters, WZ19 the prototype does not seem to be more than two. This clearly demonstrates that the production scale of WZ9 series of fairly weak 2010 to 2011 almost no mass. To this end had to design a dedicated the WZ19 armed helicopters.
reported that, from the aerodynamic shape can be seen the the WZ19 basically improved since WZ9, the engine will be the same. In any case, the WZ19 has become a dedicated attack helicopter of the tandem cockpit has better mobility than WZ9G. The drawback is still too small weapons deadweight, range, mobility will be limited. The WZ9G 8 HJ8A series of anti-tank missiles and TY90 air-to-air missiles can carry. The WZ19 also should with WZ9G weapons load of roughly equal, may be installed on a 23 mm cannon. Certainly do not rule out the possibility that it first developed for export, and then sell to the Army Aviation. Countries such as Pakistan Army has been looking for a cheap helicopter gunships.(edit: SN049) , share:
