The Long March (簡體中文:长征系列运载火箭/繁體中文:長征系列載運火箭) is a rocket (specifically, a family/group of rockets) developed, manufactured, and used by the People's Republic of China. It is named "Long March" to symbolize the Chinese communist history.

A unique design feature is that each stage has a "built-in" connector, allowing for direct stage to stage connection. This eliminates the need to use a connector between stages, and thus saves weight and allows for greater lift values. The N1-LK-LOK also utilizes this feature.

The design used is most likely based off the 3C design, but with two stages instead of three.

Long March parts are useful in career missions as they work well and are very cheap.
