The ZQ-2 medium-lift space launcher of private Chinese company Landspace is still due to make its first flight in 2020, a spokesperson said. The company mentioned the target last year but did not repeat it in announcing a March test of the power pack of the ZQ-2’s TQ-12 methane-burning main engine. Queried on this point by Aerospace DAILY, the spokesman confirms that the target has not changed. Landspace plans to test a complete TQ-12 in May.
