Shenlong Space Plane Advances China?s Military Space Potential

A chance December 11, 2007 release of a photo on a Chinese website has led to a rare unofficial ?declassification? of a new Chinese unmanned test space plane.[1] Designated the ?Shenlong,? or Divine Dragon, this small aircraft was shown suspended from the fuselage of a Xian H-6 bomber and launch aircraft.  So far there has been no official Chinese government, PLA or Chinese corporate or space program related disclosure about this program.  However, from this photo and other Chinese sources, it is possible to conclude that the Shenlong constitutes a second Chinese air-launched space-launch vehicle (SLV) program, but for the purposes of testing technologies for a future re-usable unmanned or manned space shuttle or other trans-atmospheric vehicle.
