Those huge windscreen tho

Ah… This didn’t turn out as well as I thought/hoped.

The windshield is too tall for that stubby nose. Engines are too fat and short for the aircraft, a bit shorter than I hoped.

Are those dorito chip wingtips?


Now let’s wait and see which western aircraft some ignorant person will claim this MC-21 is copied from…

Edit: Crap I wrote “short and tall” to describe the windshield. I need sleep LOL

I would say the windscreen looks like that of a 777 from afar but when you see it up close, it’s pretty wide…

Yeah, seems common for more modern Eastern airliners.

Maybe it looks like Ssj-100( guess why)?!)

Also, looks like an A320 with a messed up wind screen.

I think Russia still emphasizes more on manual flying than AP even after the disaster that was caused by manual flying

My Russki friends, please do correct me if I’m wrong

I have nothing against Russia ;)

Impressive🤔 What a big window cabin indeed.

Criticism aside though, hopefully this turns out to have success. It would be great to inject some new blood into western aircraft competition. COMAC can’t get it’s crap together, Sukhoi managed to break into Mexico and Ireland, can’t wait to see where Irkut goes!

Well they are part of UAC is that why the windscreen is like that? It will be very successful.

My theory is because Russia prefers manual flying, the wider window aids the pilots more
