Helicopter «WZ-10" was developed research institute «CH-DI». Development of the helicopter took place with the French division of Eurocopter and the Anglo-Italian company "Agusta-Westland." The French designed the support system of helicopter «WZ-10", the British and the Italians — the box. Full name — Zhishengji-10.

The wing and fuselage strengthened on the basis of the ability of an emergency or an unexpected landing. The screw has 5 blades, clockwise and can do their function even when hit at him with a small gun. The control screw has four blades consists of 2 units and placed on the tail support right.

Chinese designers have brought something to the airframe new. The helicopter was stealth elements, reduced noise of the engine and the sound of gas castings painted fuselage radar absorbing paint. Virtually all of the major elements left over from the «Z-9W», tested by time they lower the danger of the helicopter. Maybe the Chinese designers will create its own engine, but still used the basic engines. The helicopter is created as a supplement to the "large-size» Z-10.
