How strange that we never hear more here
about the recent chinese developments ...
especially about the funny An-12 avatars
(see attractive display at http://cnair.top81.cn/y-8x_sh-5_a-50i.htm )

- Y8W AEW
- Y8XZ psy Ops
- Y8G (electronic jamming)
- Y8JB (ELINT)


Cnair website is a goldmine, and their comments are very concise. Does anyone knows more about the types above? Any more pixes to be shared? Are they trustable?
