China debuts attack helicopter

China's domestically-developed attack helicopter debuts in Guangdong.

The Z-10 was unveiled at China's biggest airshow, where over 600 exhibitors gathered from across the world.

The helicopter was the main attraction, performing stunts in a display of agility.

Before it debuted, experts said the Z-10 was developing into one of the world's most capable combat helicopters.

It made the headlines in June when a U.S. company admitted violating export law and selling software which helped Beijing develop the aircraft.

Full production of the Z-10 could give China's military unprecedented levels of aerial artillery.
