Development of the Z-10 attack helicopter began in the mid-1990s, and a prototype first flew in 2003. The main mission of the Z-10 is anti-armor and battlefield interdiction. It also has certain air combat capabilities.
The Z-10 helicopter has a standard gunship structure, narrow fuselage, and tandem cockpit. The weapons operator is at the front and the pilot is at the rear. The diamond-shaped fuselage section can reduce the radar emission area on the side. All important areas will be protected by armor.
The prototype of the Z-10 uses two Canadian Pratt Whitney PT-6C-67C turboshaft engines with a single power of 1531 horsepower. The aircraft may be equipped with a fly-by-wire system, and other systems include helmet sights and head-up displays, electro-optical devices and forward-looking infrared systems, radar and laser warning receivers, infrared jammers and decoy launch systems.
