Shenzhou is China´s  first manned spacecraft and is based on the Soviet/Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

Since the late 1960s China wanted to launch its own Taikonauts. But its early projects failed due to a lack of funds and technological know-how. After the fall of the Soviet Union, however, China bought parts of the Soyuz technology from Russia. Thus, Shenzhou follows the same design and looks very similar to the Soyuz spacecraft.
After several unmanned testflight the spacecraft carried China´s first Taikonaut Yang Liwei into space in 2003.

The model itself has no textures yet and will be changed in the future. Currently it has a medium difficulty.
