Description
 

Kit #AA2103. 1/72 scale. This is a highly-detailed resin kit of the Changhe WZ-10, complete with decals.

In the mid-1990s, China evaluated the results of Gulf War combat, highlighting the importance need for tank-killing attack helicopters such as the AH-64 Apache. Following 1989’s Tiananmen Square protests – and the resulting arms embargo – China’s repeated failures to obtain modern foreign-built attack helicopters led to the decision to develop its own tank-killers. A dedicated attack helicopter design, based on the Russian firm Kamov’s Project 941 concept and designated WZ-10, was given the go-ahead in 1998. Changhe Aircraft Corporation was named as the prime contractor.

In 2003, a WZ-10 prototype completed its maiden flight. A total of six prototypes and a small number of pre-production aircraft are in service with the PLA for evaluation. The design is undergoing continuous minor modification and upgrade based on the feedback. A Naval version conducted deck trials in early 2014, while an Army version was seen to crash in a farm field the same month.
