Yup, and the name will be used for future Chinese planetary exploration missions as well.
Mars Express did something similar. Perhaps the approach trajectory is for delivering the lander to the target landing site.
A 70-metre diameter parabolic antenna reflector was hoisted and installed in Tianjin on April 25, to support the Tianwen-1 Mars mission. The GRAS-4 project was carried out by the National Astronomical Observatories of China (NAOC). https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/gRYtMYPaYTKVCzXeG477uA

Tianwen-1 Mars mission update: Cargo ships Yuanwang-21 & 22 have collected the Long March 5 rocket components from Tianjin & today set sail for Hainan. The Mars spacecraft arrived at Wenchang satellite launch centre on April 10.
The other two 2020 Mars missions have windows from 14 July to 3 August and from 17 July to 5 August.
Confirmed Tianwen-1 launch date on 23rd July at noon. backup windows on 24th,25th. Now Tianwen-1 and LM-5Y4 status are green and preparation is smoothly.
It seems that there hasn’t been any detailed specifications of the scientific instruments of the now-about-to-be-rolled-to-launch-pad of the Chinese Tianwen-1 Mars Orbiter and PRCMarsRover missions in English from anywhere I have seen - at least till now!Thanks to cathirame I finally get a detailed specifications list that I have crudely translated into English! Bear in mind that my UG physics were bad and the Chinese scientific terms used are a little bit different from my familar translations so the translation is crude.Source: LI Chunlai, LIU Jianjun, GENG Yan, CAO Jinbin, ZHANG Tielong, FANG Guangyou, YANG Jianfeng, SHU Rong, ZOU Yongliao, LIN Yangting, OUYANG Ziyuan.
