The Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) Air Force will showcase an array of aircraft at the upcoming 14th Airshow China to be held from Nov. 8 to 13 in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, a PLA Air Force spokesperson said on Sunday.

The YU-20 tanker aircraft, the J-16 multirole fighter jet, and the high-altitude long-endurance Attack-2 drone will be among them. They will make their first appearance at the China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition, also known as Airshow China, said Shen Jinke, a PLA Air Force spokesperson.

A new-generation equipment of the PLA Air Force, the YU-20 has conducted several aerial refueling exercises for warplanes, including the J-20, the J-16, and the J-10C, displaying the PLA Air Force's long-range maneuvering capabilities, Shen said.

The J-20 is China's indigenous fourth-generation medium and long-range fighter jet. It was first publicly displayed at the 11th Airshow China in November 2016.
