Re: Chinese bird



I will summise that:
Object B was the original crew/payload module.
Object B then split into 3 induvidual parts to become Object F, the re-entry module and Objects B and E are the propulsion module and crew module.
Object G is the satellite they ejected.
Objects A, C abd D are the rocket body and shields.
