by Gabriel Dominguez & Andreas Rupprecht

The People’s Liberation Army Ground Force’s (PLAGF) Xinjiang Military Command continues modernising its aerial assets, with footage from state broadcaster China Central Television (CCTV) suggesting that the command may also be operating the Harbin Aircraft Industry Group (HAIG) Z-20 medium-lift tactical helicopter.

Published on the Weibo social media platform in early February, the video shows at least two Z-20s conducting what appears to be a joint training mission with a Z-8G transport and several Z-10 attack helicopters assigned to the 84th Army Aviation Brigade in Wujiaqu, Xinjiang, which is under the PLA’s Western Theatre Command.
