And given that successive orbital launches from Xichang can happen as quickly as a 2-3 week interval;

It tracks that, given no other information, such as a satellite or launch vehicle processing delay, this launch can happen on January 26.

Spaceflightfans.cn has a photo of a CZ-2C at the launch pad in Xichang. Not sure if this refer to the YG-30-04 mission, though.

This launch seems to go to the December plane #3.
This message reflects my personal opinion based on open sources of information.

Curious, if the CCTV pictures are to be trusted, the satellites are small so the rocket should have a lot of spare capacity. So one launch per plane looked reasonable. Maybe it's an optical/radar component whereas the others were allegedly SIGINT?
