Background story
China's aviation industry experienced significant growth in the 1970s following the application of systematic aeronautical manufacturing experience gained through cooperation with the Boeing company on the Y-10 program. The initial batch of the Y-10 series, equipped with four small bypass ratio engines, rolled off the assembly line at the Dachang factory of the Shanghai AIG in 1980. Dozens of these aircraft entered service each year in China's civil aviation sector and the PLAAF since then. The Y-10, with its four engines, and the imported twin-engine Boeing 737s formed a peculiar 'low-high mix' in domestic service for some time. By 1986, over a hundred of these aircraft had been produced.
In December 1985 CAAC imported their first new Boeing 737-300 aircraft equipped with CFM56-3B1 engines. These engines were more fuel-efficient than the outdated engines on the Y-10, Boeing 707 and Boeing 737-200, which were the mainstays at the time. Based on a theory that the new large bypass ratio engine would completely replace the outdated JT3, JT8 and FWS8 in the near future, CAAC started the preparation of desining new twin-engine and tri-engine large bypass ratio mid-size mainline narrowbody airliner in 1986. The tri-engine design is later named as the Y-13 and the twin-engine design as the Y-14. The new airliner program officially began in 26 February 1988.
Part of the specifications for the twin-engine design were established in 1989: utilising the fuselage cross-section of the existing Y-10 similar to the Boeing 737's use of the Boeing 707; twin-engine CFM56 engines; a basic passenger capacity of 145 (in a typical cabin layout); a maximum range of 4,000 kilometres, and a maximum take-off weight of more than 60 tonnes. Design began on 17 August 1990 in cooperation with Shanghai and Xi'an AIG. The design of the tri-engine Y-13 encountered multiple bottlenecks and was eventually cancelled in mid-1994. Fortunately the twin-engine design progressed more smoothly and the first prototype began structural assembly in April 1998 at the Shanghai Dachang factory. Two of the first batch prototypes were publicly revealed on 2 May 1999 with a grand celebration ceremony while full static load tests were launched in March of the same year already. The Y-14 prototypes were delivered to China's Test Flight Centre on 1 January 2000 and passed the maiden flight review in August of the same year. On 3 September 2000, the first Y-14 passenger aircraft made its maiden flight at Dachang Airport. On the same day China's first AC-driven EMU was completed in Zhuzhou. From then on, China's public transport business began to rise. The second and fourth prototypes made their maiden flights in Shanghai on 1 December of the same year and 1 April 2001 respectively. Test flights of all the prototypes were completed in May 2002. The CAAC issued the type certificate and production licence for Y-14 series in the same year.
On 4 February 2000, the Chinese New Year's Eve, China Southern airlines announced that it had become the first user of the Y-14 airliner. The contract for the first batch of mass-produced aircraft was signed in autumn 2002 but manufacturing was disrupted until late May 2003 due to the SARS epidemic. Deliveries of mass-produced aircrafts began in 2004.
By 2010 hundreds of Y-14s are in service of more than a dozen domestic and international airlines and the PLAAF.

    本人极反感使用官网作品低创水视频的行为,所以B站某些人请回吧

    此为本人设定中的故事线,如有雷同纯属巧合
    在1970年代获得到大量来自波音公司的系统性航空制造经验并得以运用后,中国的航空工业发展呈现出爆炸性增长态势,装备四台小涵道比引擎的运输十型系列飞机于1980年首批次在上海飞机工业集团大场工厂下线后以每年数十架的速度进入民用航空部门和人民解放军空军服役,该型号截至1986年已有逾百架产量。四发动机的运输十型飞机和引进的双发动机波音737客机在一段时间内形成了一种奇怪的“低高搭配”在中国国内服役。
    1985年12月中国民航总局引进了第一架新型波音737-300飞机。该机装备CFM56-3B1引擎,其燃油效率相比当时正大量使用的运输十型、波音707和波音737-200上装备的老旧引擎及其衍生型更高。当时的中国民航总局认为新型大涵道比引擎将完全替代老旧的JT3、JT8和涡扇-8。在此理论基础上,于1986年同时开始了新型双发和三发大涵道比中型干线窄体客机的论证工作。三发设计被称为运输十三型,双发设计被称为运输十四型。新型客机项目于1988年2月26日正式开始。
    于1989年确定了双发设计的部分指标:如同波音737之于波音707一样,使用已有的运输十型的机身截面设计;采用双发CFM56引擎;基本型载客量145人左右(典型客舱布局);最大航程4000千米,最大起飞重量大于60公吨。由上海飞机工业集团和西安飞机工业集团合作,设计工作于1990年8月17日开始。三发动机的运输十三型设计工作遇到多处瓶颈,最终于1994年中取消。双发设计推进较为顺利,其首架原型机在1998年4月开始在上海大场工厂进行结构总装。原型机首批次中的两架于1999年5月2日正式下线并向全球公开,在上海大场工厂举行了盛大的庆祝仪式,而全机静力试验已于该年3月启动。2000年1月1日,运输十四型客机交付中国试飞中心。同年8月通过首飞放飞评审。2000年9月3日第一架运输十四型客机在上海大场机场进行了首飞,同一天中国的第一台交流传动电力动车组在株洲竣工,从此中国的公共交通事业开始腾飞。第二架和第四架原型机分别于同年12月1日和次年4月1日在上海完成首次飞行。所有原型机的试飞工作于2002年5月结束。中国民用航空总局于当年向本机型发放了型号合格证和生产许可证。
    2000年2月4日在中国除夕之际,中国南方航空公司宣布其成为运输十四型客机的首家用户。首批次客机合同于2002年秋季签订,但制造工作由于非典疫情搁置至2003年5月下旬才正式开始。首批量产机于2004年开始交付,截至2010年已有数百架运输十四型飞机在十几个国内外航空公司及人民解放军空军服役。
    本作为运输十四型乙系列基准型(即-300型)。

    图波列夫204是更大的200+座级客机,尺寸更大(41.8翼展 46.1机长),在本人的设定中中国没有与其对标的飞机(引进少量波音757除外)。
