As an aside, I hope this 921 rocket would have a more creative name than just "Long March Heavy". We already have the triple-core Delta IV Heavy and Falcon Heavy. Maybe "Long March 555"?

Most likely "LM/CZ-10". It is not a size competition with anybody in that "I beat you with bigger numbers". Example is that China still call J-20 a fourth generation fighter although US and Russia call their counter parts fifth generation. Not bothering fancy and trendy name is a clear demonstration of self confidence.

A paper on the "thrust transmission structure" of China's upcoming superheavy rocket (a.k.a. the 921 rocket). The development is in full swing.

My technical Chinese is very limited in this area, so I'm not able to translate the paper. It does however have an English abstract.
