We might never find out. From my POV here it looks like it has no pitch control for the tail rotor or collective control for the main rotor, plus a chain that looks as if it would fly right off the sprocket.

Its called Fighting 5th Space, good show. I highly suggest it to you all but I can't find any English versions or other languages

I was looking at promotional pics of Fighting 5th Space and the WZ-19 appears to have the same Fenestron as seen on the RAH-66!
Well! This looks like a tandem-seat WZ-9 helicopter project I found quite a few years ago! Back when I was new to Secret Projects I had found a photo of a very similar tandem-seat WZ-9 aircraft with an engineer or pilot standing next to it. Stupid me didn't save the picture and I couldn't find it since. I told the SPF guys about it and they thought I was talking about a photoshopped hypothetical variant.

And to the side they resemble earlier conceptions of the WZ-10, back when it was proposed to have a Fenestron instead of a conventional tail rotor.

Thanks for the WZ-19 pic, looks real enough.
China attempted to import some BV-234s (CH-47s) for civilian use, and one sample was painted as China Civilian Airlines, but the project was cancelled.
Behold! Wind-tunnel models of the Z-7!
Big thanks to Deino.
And a better 3-view than what I originally had.
From Triton, the AVIC VSTOL concept model on display at Airshow China 2010 in Zhuhai:
Cool! Looks like the Sadlier Sa-7! :D
Good photos of the Z-9W and China Rescue EC-725.
Burn Rubber does not mean Warp Speed!
Awsome pictures! The WZ-9 is beast!

Found a new helicopter type not listed. Called WZ-16, maybe you guys know more?
WZ16 is a 1,800 shp turboshaft engine for the Z-15 (AC.352) helicopter expected to enter mass production in 2014.
