The WJ-10 turboprop is a new Chinese engine of 5,000 kW. It could be a candidate as the Advanced Heavy Lifter (ALH) powerplant if its high-altitude performance was adequate. The WJ-10 had not been closely considered for this role as of 2016. The WJ10 turboprop is a study for local development of a 5000 kilowatt engine, for volume production by 2014 for the Y19 transport "30 Ton" series [this may just be a typographic mistake for the well-attested Y-9, of quite similar characteristics].
As of 2016 this project remained very portly attested.
