Chinese orbital launch vehicle. In February 1999 the China Great Wall Company announced it was developing more powerful Long March rockets using larger-size liquid propellant strap-on motors. The Long March 3B(A) would be available in 2002.

AKA: Chang Zheng-3B(E);CZ-3B(A);Long March 3B(E). Status: Design 1999. Payload: 13,000 kg (28,000 lb). Thrust: 8,910.00 kN (2,003,040 lbf). Gross mass: 580,000 kg (1,270,000 lb). Height: 62.00 m (203.00 ft). Diameter: 3.35 m (10.99 ft). Apogee: 200 km (120 mi).

The rocket would be launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the northwest part of China because the existing CZ-3B launch pad at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center was not able to handle such a large rocket.

LEO Payload: 13,000 kg (28,000 lb) to a 200 km orbit at 28.50 degrees. Payload: 6,000 kg (13,200 lb) to a GTO.
