      China has bought from the ukraine the licence to built more An-225īs. They will get at first the half built second AN-225 and then built some following 225.maybe a good market for voluminous or more than 200to cargo

      The license was likely cheap (relatively speaking), but I bet what they will take some artistic license with (call it reverse engineering or even copying) is the large high-bypass turbofan engines that will come with it. I've read that one of the big challenges they have had with their new military transport (C-17ish looking airlifter) is building indigenous large turbofans to power it, and subsequent designs...
