Are they copies of American rockets? Can only be, seeing that the Chinese are incapable of inventing anything...
Oh, I don't know. This is technology the Americans had in the 1960's, so the Chinese might have come up with it on their own by now.
The article states that these rockets are fully reusable. So these are the same as 1960's rockets. SO basically the XiCP has skipped over making Falcon 9 and gone directly yo Falcon Heavy. *If* their claims are true. Which indicates they did not spend much time learning how to do this on their own.

We'll see.

At least it's less unrealistic than the Star Destroyer you said they were building. :D
