As a good Chinese custom the manufacturer has looked well at comparable aircraft. You can clearly see that the wings and engines of the Xian Y-20 nearly identical to that of the Ilyushin 76. The tail could very well come from the C-17. Only the nose is different from those to aircraft, making recognition easy.
The Yak-130 was at first a joint venture between Yakovlev and Aermacchi, but in the end both manufacturers went their own way. Hence the resemblance between the Yak-130 and M346 is not remarkable. The Yak-130 has small nose gear doors and straight landing gear legs as main recognition points.
Yakovlev Yak-25 family
The Yak-25 is a fighter bomber aircraft that has engines in long pods under the wings and a tandem undercarriage, like other Yakovlev designs. The aft main gear is below the wings. Most versions of the family have a blunt nose.
The recoinnaisance version of the Yak-25 has high mounted straight wings with a large span. For the rest it is a typical Yakovlev aircraft with tandem gear and engines under the wings.
Similar in shape as the Yak-25 the Yak-28 also has jet engines in long pods under the wings and a tandem main gear. The wings are attached quite high on the fuselage. The aft main gear is placed behind the wings, so that there is a lot of room between the frint and aft gear. The nose is often pointed.
This Yakovlev design has a big, split air intake in the nose feeding two engines with each a swivelling nozzle on each side of the fuselage. Furthermore it has a tandem landing gear with wing tip wheels and nearly a T-tail.
The Soviet counterpart of the Harrier has a lift fan behind the canopy and two swivelling exhausts at the rear to enable vertical take-off and landing. Other features are short delta wings and a pointed top of vertical stabiliser.
The smallest three engined jet airliner in the world has straight wings, all engines at the rear of the fuselage and big, single wheel main landing gears. It is about the same size asa Falcon trijet, but with a T-tail.
Unlike the other airliners with jet engines at/in the rear fuselage the Yak-42 has high-by-pass engines, with separate exhaust for the fan and core flows. Moreover, it is the only one with four wheels on each main landing gear leg, divided over two axis.
This two seat trainer has a radial engine, elevated canopy with multiple frames and a vertical stabiliser curved from the dorsal fin until the underside of the fuselage, giving it an egg shape at the back. Typical is that the gear does not fully retract.
