According to various Chinese media reports, China is going to launch as many as 18 BeiDou-3 satellites by the end of 2018 to achieve IOC. Launch of BeiDou-3 satellites will resume starting 2017, we can anticipate a very ambiguous launch plan for the following two years.

Likely this launch will be deferred following the failure of ZX-9A.

Please pardon my confusion. 

From Gunter's, it appears that the Beidou-3M -series satellites can be launched ONE AT A TIME by the CZ-03*C*/YZ-1; if they are launched in PAIRS, they are to be launched on a CZ-03*B*/YZ-1.

Am I misunderstanding Gunter, is Gunter misunderstanding the Chinese, or do "we" not understand anything about this particular launch?!?!

I take it the launch has been delayed from July 15? (It's very early morning July 16 Beijing Time.)

Yes it appears CZ-3 launcher family has been grounded so all launches this year should now be marked as TBD.

Considering YuanWang 3/5/6/7 have returned, BeiDou-3 will not launch in the coming weeks
