Chinese orbital launch vehicle. This version of the Long March New Generation Launch Vehicle series small launcher was selected after the decision to drop development of the 2.25 m diameter booster module. Instead it used a shorter version of the 3.35 m diameter module as the first stage with a single YF-100 engine and a single upper stage of 2.25 m diameter with a single YF-115 engine. Payload was given as 1.0 metric tons into a sun synchronous orbit. First launch was in 2015.

AKA: Chang Zheng-5-2.25;CZ-5-2.25;CZ-NGLV-Light;Long March Next Generation Light Launch Vehicle. Status: In development. Payload: 1,000 kg (2,200 lb). Thrust: 1,188.00 kN (267,073 lbf). Gross mass: 103,000 kg (227,000 lb). Height: 29.00 m (95.00 ft). Diameter: 3.35 m (10.99 ft).

An improved version, with an upper stage and a 4 metric ton payload, was said to be planned. However the rocket was of more use as a technology pathfinder for the CZ-7 launched the following year, and faced competition from other solid-propellant Chinese small payload launchers.



Subtopics

CZ-NGLV-200 stage LOx/Kerosene propellant rocket stage. From top to bottom the 2.25-m Chinese new generation launch vehicle consists of a 42.3 cubic meter liquid oxygen tank, an intertank section, a 22.0 cubic meter kerosene tank, and an engine section with one gimbaled LOX /Kerosene engines of 1200 kN vacuum thrust. The oxygen tank is pressurized using oxygen bled from the engine and helium is used to pressurize the kerosene tank. The engines can be throttled to 65% of rated thrust. Burn time shown assumes full thrust during engine burn.
