Clash of launch site preparation places with BepiColombo which has a planetary launch window to chase in October 2018.

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to be Launched Spring 2019

NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope now is planning to launch between March and June 2019 from French Guiana, following a schedule assessment of the remaining integration and test activities. Previously Webb was targeted to launch in October 2018.

<snip>

The launch window request has been coordinated with ESA, which is providing the Ariane 5 launch of Webb as part of its scientific collaboration with NASA.

I'm a bit confused about the latest Vega order.
This was the third order after the maiden flight, the 5xVerta launches and the first batch of 10 Vega launchers Arianespace could sell commercially. So to my knowledge Vega VV11-VV16 are still part of this order of 10 Vega launchers.
Now where I got confused. Does this order involve Vega VV17-VV22 and Vega 01-04; or have four additional Vega launchers have been ordered in the between the two batches of 10 Vega(-C)'s?
The news release from Arianespace states that 20 Vega(-C) launches have been sold already.
Could the maiden flight of Vega-C and the three Vega-C launches for 2x Airbus optical and CSG2 flights have been ordered seperatly?

And the last batch of Ariane 5; PC-batch involved 14 ECA launchers plus an option for four additional launchers.
The PB and PB+ batches both involved 35 launchers if I remember correctly.

Smith adds the decision to delay JWST to “late spring” of 2019 had nothing to do with schedule conflict with BepiColombo launch in Oct ’18.
