First off CZ-7 and CZ-7A (XSLC debut version) are not the same versions and have different Y numbers.
I thought the CZ-7 Y3 for Tianzhou-2 was already in Wenchang, is it possible to have two CZ-7s at the same time there?
Several local tour operators are currently advertising for a LM-3B Xichang launch on January 19, curiously stating that it's of a Tianhui series satellite. That's highly interesting because the series of cartography satellites doesn't seems likely to involve BLEO operations.Either the tour operators got it wrong, or there's another LM-3B SSO launch soon, or (one theory from Chinese forums) it's the long rumored/reported Chinese geosynchronous SAR satellite. (note that SAR requires the antenna to be moving to work, so geostationary orbit won't work and people assume it would go to an inclined GSO)
China plans to launch 7 satellites, "Fengyun" in the 2021-2025 years.Beijing, January 19 / Xinhua / -- China plans to launch two weather satellites, Fengyun-4B and Fengyun-3E, in 2021. During the 14th five-year plan (2021-2025), five more Fengyun satellites will also be launchedforecasts.

Spaceflightfans.cn is giving an interesting schuedule for the next two weeks:- the Jielong-1 (Y2) to be launched from WSLC with Hainan-1 (1) to Hainan-1 (4); Launch possibly on the 24th?- the Long March-11 (Y10) from Xichang with an unknown payload(s)- a Long March-4C from Jiuquan with YG-31 Grp-2- a Long March-3B/? from Xichang with a Tianhui GEOSAR
I received from a friend in China the following launch road map:March 2021: CZ-5B Y2 - Tianhe core moduleApril 2021: CZ-7 Y3 - Tianzhou-2June 2021: CZ-2F/G Y12 - SZ-12Aug 2021: CZ-7 Y4 - Tianzhou-3Sep 2021: CZ-2F/G Y13 - SZ-13
SHANGHAI, Jan. 26 (Xinhua) -- Long March-6A, China's first carrier rocket powered by a solid and liquid engine, will make its maiden flight in 2021, its developer said.
Will there be any more Chinese orbital launches before February 12?Quote from: newfrontiers on 02/09/2021 03:12 amnone
