DFH-5
The Chinese DFH-5 bus was developed for the next generation large GEO telecommunications and earth observation satellites. It used many new technologies: electric propulsion, networked heat pipes, a deployable radiator, a 2-dimension semi-rigid solar wing, unified system propulsion management, a new-generation power controller, and improved integrated electronics. It's greater launch mass was matched to the CZ-5 launch vehicle and first launch would await the availability of the new booster.

Status: Operational 2017.

Characteristics were as follows:

Launch Mass: 6500-9000 kg
