Still on track to launch on Jan. 17

I thought the Jan. 17 one is for its competitor, the Long March 11.  ::)

From the article.

"The launch cost of the Kuaizhou rockets has been reduced to 5,000 U.S. dollars per kg of payload, which is considerably lower than its international competitors, according to Zhang."

That's about 10 times cheaper than new Western small launch vehicles!
