From Wikipedia:

At the 9th Zhuhai Airshow held in November 2012, Aviation Industry Corporation of China formally announced the official names of WZ-10 and WZ-19 at a televised news release conference, with both attack helicopters are named after the nicknames of fictional characters in the Water Margin, one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. WZ-10 is named as Fierce Thunderbolt (Pi Li Huo, 霹靂火), the nickname of Qin Ming, while WZ-19 is named as Black Whirlwind (He Xuan Feng, 黑旋風), the nickname of Li Kui.

Thought it interesting, so I thought I would share.  B)

Harbin Z-19 Black Whirlwind
CAIC Z-10 Fierce Thunderbolt

 

 Deino from the Secret Projects forum is claiming that the correct designation is Z-10, not WZ-10.

The AirForce Monthly October issue

http://www.airforcesmonthly.com/view_issue.asp?ID=5836

 

Claims:

 

I list some of the points the article claims

  - It says it has bulletproof front glass about 38mm thick capable of withstanding 12.7mm rounds
  - Type-95KT composite rotor blades and X-tail rotor capable of withstanding at least 12.7mm
  - Composite fuselage which is mainly aluminium alloy, RAM painted (Nothing of which would be new)
  - Pakistan could buy WZ-10 as first costumer which are considering T-129 or WZ-10 currently
  - Author claims the current WZ-10 do not have modern FLIRs (TADS/PVNS) like seen on early prototype models
  - According to this article China searches for testing it in peacekeeping missions somewhere in Africa.

Bet they don't say anything about them (wz builders) and PW getting their teats in a wringer for the engines.
Funny how they speed up the films to show what that slug couldn't really do.

 I headdesked when I first read about that. The part of the CMH guise and secretly installing ther engines into the Z-10 while the Z-15 deal was done and PWC not having a clue was a nice touch. :P

Also renamed thread and merged some of Triton's posts.
