TAI is displaying a mock-up of the T-625 six-metric-ton medium utility helicopter. The T625 is the first commercial platform to use the Light Helicopter Turbine Engine Company (LHTEC) T800 engines, a powerplant selected for its commonality with the T129 ATAK attack helicopter. T-625 is likely to find its first orders from the Turkish military, who want to replace the aging Bell UH-1 Iroquois, and the Turkish national police which wants to base helicopters in many of the country’s major cities.

The first prototype of the "new" helicopter, dubbed Z-20, flew in 2013. Very little is known about the helicopter, with pictures being the best source of information. Externally, the helicopter is very similar to the Blackhawk, with a shorter nose and five rotor blades instead of four. We can reasonably assume that the Z-20 carries at least 11 personnel, the same number as the Blackhawk. Chinese media sources report it has a larger internal cabin. Lager, Outdoor, Prototype, Media
