China confirms development of Y-20 large transport aircraft to meet its military modernization drive, a China’s Ministry of Defense spokesman said.

"We are developing large transport aircraft on our own to improve the capability of military transport," spokesman Yang Yujun said at a monthly news briefing held days after photos of a Y-20 appeared on the internet.

The advanced long-range aircraft is being developed to serve the military modernization drive, as well as to meet demands in disaster relief work and humanitarian aid in emergency situations, he added.

The spokesman did not say when the Y-20 aircraft will be fitted out in force, only saying "the research and development of the large transport aircraft is going forward as planned."
