Title: JSLC launch pad designation
Post by: limen4 on 12/23/2017 05:56 pm
Enlargement of a detail at the large JSLC screen seems to confirm now that the real designation of the CZ-2C/CZ-2D/CZ-4C launch pad is East Wind 9401 station (东风9401工位). Under http://novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/forum/forum13/topic7415/?PAGEN_1=8 Liss has provided  some additional sources which supports this On the other side I have never seen an official document which supports the 603 number for the pad.  I have also found the designation 9406-2 and 9406-3 for camera positions around the 9401 launch pad.

I have also seen camera feeds in a still before with camera numbers ranging from 9400-0 through 9400-26 show both 603 and 921 pads in the field of view I believe was during one of the TG launches from 921. 9400 may be the overall number for the entire south launch area 2.
