Is it probable that technicians have incorporated into the second Zhuque-2 vehicle the structural adjustments correcting quirks that might have doomed the first Zhuque-2 launch so that the Zhuque-2 makes it to orbit this time?

It appears that Landspace has rolled ZhuQue-2 out to the launch pad ahead of the vehicle's second orbital launch attempt from Jiuquan later this month.

Zhuque-2 Y2 second stage release pin malfunctioned during the third full pre-launch test said in a documentary video of Y2 mission. I would expect further delay of the launch. Via m.weibo.cn/status/4916884…
