So, does anyone know about this GAMANET protocol?  I have some S-Band stuff that should be able to pick it up.  But once it's picked up, I need to know how to process it into something meaningful  :D

I guess you'd need the exact spec, which doesnt seem to be open, but

Here are some screen captures from

http://tv.cntv.cn/video/C10601/0ce9d9c6698140eca259f761d50843c1


Another video here, hot fire test and more complete animation. They show whats clearly a liquid engine which i'm assuming is the upper stage YF-50, but just guessing

Original thread:

sure these pics don't belong on the model 6?
The last simulated launch shown on the video was a CZ-6.  The other simulated launches looked like CZ-11.  There were also a couple of bits showing liquid engines or stages, but the opening test firing looked like a CZ-11 (DF-31?) solid motor first stage.  Similarities to Castor 120.

It seems like a good idea to post some shots of the 1st launch of the CZ-11 on the day the 2nd flies. These have been just dug up by one of the mods of that Chinese forum I visit frequently. ;)

Images from a ground test of the CZ-11 show the designation WROII at the payload fairing. What does it mean? Maybe "II" stands for "11" but I have no idea for WRO.

Looks like there is a base charge to eject it from the canister, followed by ignition of the first stage motor at an altitude of about 10m.

The in-flight photo shows a CZ-4C rocket, not CZ-11
