lots of papers on Mars exploration in the latest issue of the Chinese Journal of Deep Space Exploration (in Chinese, of course)

Hi - A few news outlets are carrying stories about the 2020 Chinese Mars rover.
This one talks about "13 payloads" - http://www.scmp.com/news/china/policies-po...ed-mission-mars
From the article:
The probe will carry 13 payloads including a remote sensing camera and a ground penetrating radar which can be used to study the soil, environment and atmosphere of Mars.
It can also study the distribution of water and ice and the planets inner structure.

Does anyone have more information, or links to public documents about what these payloads are?

Nothing concrete on the experiment package that I could find. I'm wondering if the lander will act as a stationary laboratory, or at least photograph the rover.

Interesting that the egress is the same as the lunar rovers (two thin rails like a ramp). They look so fragile! Though to be fair so do airbags and skycranes until one sees them in operation.
I do like the 'wings' in the style of MER, aesthetics is always helped by symmetry....
