    New Chinese satellite was launched for Taiyuan by CZ-4 (? CZ-4B)
    launcher today 2002-10-27 03:11 UT. According to Xinhua agency it is the
    second ZY-2 (Ziyuan = Resources) satellite, but OIG uses name JB-3 2 (?
    = Jianbing). This name (if acronym is correctly deciphered) was used for
    an alternative name to an FSW satellite in 1993 (1993-063A).
    
    Any info avaliable?
