The "experimental core module" could be the equivalent of the "Tiangong 3", Salyut 6/7 class station which has been discussed previously.   Tiangong 2 will only have one docking port - I am sure, like Tiangong 1 - so Taingong 3 would be the first station to have docking ports at each end of the longitudinal axis.
It is my understanding that unlike the passive docking assembly on Tiangong 1, Tiangong 2 seems to contain dual mode docking assembly to perform active docking and accept passive docking. With that information I'm wondering if docking can be performed Tiangong 1 and 3 for equipment transfer or serve as an additional module from time to time during the early portion of the Tiangong 3 flight programme.

I'm not completely sure about the launch of the "experimental core module". Chinese sources have stated that there will be no TG-3 and that the cargo transfer as well as the fuel transfer would be tested on TG-2 (how can they test the cargo transfer without a crew on TG-2?).

The original schedule for Tiangong was the launch of the core module on 2018, but latter statements put this on 2020. Or, there will be no "experimental core module" and Tianhe will be launched on 2018,

According to an insider, SAST has 10 launches planned in 2015, but all of them won't happen till the second half of the year, including CZ-6's first flight. This, combined with no apparent action happening in Xichang since the new year, almost certainly rules out any launches from China in January and February.

Not sure if my translation is correct but the last sentence of this source (http://china.cnr.cn/NewsFeeds/20150304/t20150304_517882405.shtml) says that Jilin-1 will be launched together with 4 more satellites.

I thought it actually means that Jilin-1 consists of 4 satellites. Now, I wonder what their design or usage will be... ::)

In September there will be a launch of three satellite on a mission designated TW-1. The mission will have experiments in the field of telecommunications, ocean surveillance and Earth observation. This mission will use the Gamalink technology used by the Tekever Portuguese company that previously worked with ESA on the Proba-3 mission.

Any idea of what mission this is?

Missão espacial chinesa leva tecnologia portuguesa a bordo (in Portuguese)

Edit: Some information can be found in this paper: TW-1 is a cubesat networking demonstration mission consisting of a 3U cubesat and two 2U cubesats.

do we know launcher and launch site yet?? There is some newer conflicting information that CZ-11 maiden flight might lift similar payloads as that of CZ-6 maiden flight. Both maiden launches are from TSLC. Im not sure that TSLC would be correct launch site since we don't yet know planned inclination.

The article doesn't mention any launcher or launch site. I'll try to get some info from the Portuguese side.

According to http://bbs.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=redirect&goto=findpost&ptid=11395&pid=362359&fromuid=1812 , three Chinese launches are planned in July from all the three sites. Tourist trips are being advertised to Jiuquan (July 11-18), Xichang (July 20-26) and Taiyuan (July 28 -- Aug 02).
This message reflects my personal opinion based on open sources of information.

Would that Taiyuan flight have to be CZ-11, or are there any other plausible candidate launches?
