Interesting serial numbers...  ::)

The next few flights of the CZ-4 series are as follows:
CZ-4B Y15 (ZY-1-02C)
CZ-4C Y9 (YG-14)
CZ-4B Y26 (ZY-3)
CZ-4C Y10 (maybe YG-15?)
CZ-4B Y12 (dunno, could be CBERS-3)


A CZ-4B with manufacture number Y17 and a CZ-2D with number Y21 was oberved during a technical visit on Sep 8th at the Shanghai Aerospace Equipment Manufayture Factory (see  GoTaikonauts Oct 2011 issue). Any idea of the payloads and a possible launch date?

Thank you Galactic. Many of us are still blocked from access from 9ifly.cn space forum, so we can't see those links.

There seem to be two Yaogan Weixing 16 satellites missing (unless it's a cluster of three, of course), plus 14 and 15.

And we still have a gap or two in the sequential numbers for the Shijian series.

Interesting serial numbers...  ::)

The next few flights of the CZ-4 series are as follows:
CZ-4B Y15 (ZY-1-02C)
CZ-4C Y9 (YG-14)
CZ-4B Y26 (ZY-3)
CZ-4C Y10 (maybe YG-15?)
CZ-4B Y12 (dunno, could be CBERS-3)


A CZ-4B with manufacture number Y17 and a CZ-2D with number Y21 was oberved during a technical visit on Sep 8th at the Shanghai Aerospace Equipment Manufayture Factory (see  GoTaikonauts Oct 2011 issue). Any idea of the payloads and a possible launch date?

CZ-4B Y17 went up in 2007 with CBERS-02B?

Target launch date for ZY-3/Vesselsat-2 is January 10.

LuxSpace says the launch will probably take place on the 9th.

In the launch listing for 2013 the launch vehicle for the Tiangong 2 mini-station is given as the CZ-7.

Is this correct?   If Tiangong 2 is to be like Tiangong 1, then I would have thought it would also be launched on the CZ-2F(T?).   Also I would be surprised if such a high profile payload would be on the maiden launch of the vehicle.

Phil, the information I had was that TG-2 was going to be launched by the CZ-2F/H that now is the CZ-7. If TG-2 if effectively is going to use the CZ-7, then we should expect some launches of this rocket before this mission.

If this correct then I would expect the Shenhou launches to continue out of Jiuquan since the Chinese have invested so much in the infrastructure there.

Iam not sure of any rumoured maiden launches of the CZ-7, though, before 2013 or so.
