Y-20 Kunpeng - Nomenclature

The official codename of the aircraft is Kunpeng, after the mythical bird that can fly for thousands of miles, described in the ancient Chinese Taoist classic Zhuangzi. However, within the Chinese aviation industry itself, the aircraft is more commonly known by its nickname Chubby Girl [Pangniu], because its fuselage is much wider compared to other Chinese aircraft previously developed in China.

The Yun-20 aircraft is also affectionately referred to as the "Fat Girl". It is said to be known as the "Peng Peng" [the booming sound of wind, luxuriant or abundant, a slang word meaning exceptional or awesome, but there are other Pin-yin constructions that don't make much contextual sense]. Peng linguistically symbolizes "greatness; great promise; great accomplishments". This character is commonly used in Chinese given names and several important mainland Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwanese politicians have Peng in their given names. In contrast, the character Kun is seldom used.

The term "Kunpeng" is used as a metaphor for the greatest thing. A Kun-peng is a mythical water dragon that originated from China, but have now spread around the world. The name is taken from Zhuangzi's"Xiaoyaoyou" - "There is a fish in the North Ming, and its name is Kun; Kun is so big, I dont know how many miles it is. When it turns into a bird, its name is Peng; the back of Peng, I dont know how many miles it is. It flies in anger, and its wings are like clouds hanging from the sky." Kun is the juvenile stage of Peng, just breaking out of the egg. Many Zhuangzi scholars have debated the Peng story. Lian Xinda calls it "arguably the most controversial image in the text, which has been inviting conflicting interpretations for the past seventeen centuries.

Zhuangzi (C. 369-286) was a philosopher during the Contending States Period, from Song Guomeng (now in Henan). He inherited and developed Lao Tzu's doctrine and is the main representative of Taoism. Later generations referred to Lao Tzu and him as "Lao Zhuang". Realizing that things are changing, but ignoring the stability and differences of the nature of things, become relativism. His philosophical thought reached a very high level of thinking, and had a great influence on later generations. The article is rich in imagination and expressive. His books are "Zhuangzi".

A Kunpeng is the patriarch of the skies, it commands the air and controls the seas. Kun-pengs are massive beasts that look like hybrids of fish and birds. They have fish-like bodies, but their pectoral fins are replaced by bird-like wings. Kun-pengs are able to move at extraordinary physical speed. Kun-pengs are able to be physically active for longer periods of time than most other beings. In fact, they are said to be able to fly for six months without rest. Kunpeng Airlines, former name of Henan Airlines, charter airline based in northern China. Kunpeng 920 (Huawei Kunpeng 920), ARM-based server CPU produced by HiSilicon (7nm process). As a member of the Kunpeng computing industry, Huawei has launched the Kunpeng Eco-Partnership Program, including the Lingyun Plan, the Wing-Expansion Plan, and the Smart Number Plan. It is expected that all walks of life will join in and work together to build such an ecosystem.

Kunpeng, a divine beast that appeared in ancient Chinese myths and legends, is two extremely large creatures. Kun is a big fish that lives in the sea in the north and can be transformed into a peng bird. Peng is a big bird, with wings like clouds and mist covering the sky and sun. The name Kunpeng first appeared in the Taoist theory " Liezi - Tangwen ": In the north of the end, there are those with Minghai, and Tianchi also has Yuyan. It is thousands of miles wide, its long is called Yan, and its name is Kun . There is a bird Yan, whose name is Peng , and its wings are like clouds hanging down from the sky, and its body is called Yan. Does the world know there is such a thing? Dayu sees it when he walks, Bo Yi knows it, and Yi Jian hears it.

The Golden Winged Roc bird does not have the ability of Kunpeng to change, and the Kunpeng is not like the golden-winged Roc's human face bird body. Kunpeng is the first-class sacred beast, and Garuda is just one of the eight dragons. .Regarding Peng, historical records are mostly seen in the Buddhist "Golden Winged Dapeng King". But Kunpeng has nothing to do with the Golden Winged Dapeng recorded in Buddhism. It is recorded in the Tripitaka that the Golden Winged Roc was originally named Jialou Luo, a creature with a human face and a bird body. The record of Kunpeng is "Peng's migration to Nanmingya, the water hits three thousand miles, and the one who swivels upwards for 90,000 miles, and the one who will breathe in June." It can be seen that Kunpeng exists as a separate creature.
