The last of the "spinners," worldwide? (Spin-stabilized satellites, particularly in GEO)

BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) -- China will launch a new meteorological satellite in the first half this year to further boost its weather forecasting capabilities, according to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
The Fengyun-II 09 satellite, the last in the Fengyun-II series, will be able to collect meteorological, maritime, and hydrological data to help weather forecast in China and neighboring regions...
...or another?

Apparently, yes.  And, as such, the satellite count in the article includes the first Fengyun 2 s/c, which never made it to the launch pad.  It was destroyed in a launch processing accident in 1994.

That is why I have always called the first FY-2 to reach orbit "FY-2 1R", R = replacement.
