Kind of parallel topic at http://www.9ifly.cn/sub/thread-696-1-1.html :-)Would like to know what is Fengniao-1.

The April 13 version of the schedule on the Chinese forum lists a joint launch of HJ-1C and Xiwang from Taiyuan by CZ-2C, probably in August. Also, Sinosat-4 (Xichang, CZ-3B) is listed.Yaogan Weixing-7 is also listed from Taiyuan by CZ-4B, but the list gives the same vehicle for YG-6 to be launched in 10 days by CZ-2C, so I don't think this is entirely reliable.Fengniao-1 (蜂鸟一号) is described as a possible piggyback intended for what I cannot understand (for fans: 蜂鸟一号，来头可不小，属于子母星，母星释放子星，然后组成近地轨道小卫星编队飞行，对地观测．军民用价值意义都比较大). Also Tianxun-1 (天巡一号) is a piggyback.The Chinese are extremely serious about the Earthquake electromagnetic monitor satellite which has been described in details in the APSCO magazine.The schedule does not include SJ-9, the Lao satellite, a FSW, the Jishu Shiyan-1 and even the Tianhui-1.
I guess Fengniao-1 is Hummersat
