"In the assembly and testing building of Baikonur, specialists from Roskosmos completed the mechanical assembly of the "package" (first and second stage blocks) of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle for the launch of the cargo ship"

Announcement

During the work at the Baikonur Cosmodrome to prepare for the launch of the Progress MS-13 cargo ship under the program of the 74th mission of the International Space Station supply, comments were revealed. At the moment, the remarks have been eliminated; all on-board systems are being checked.

The launch date of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Progress MS-13 cargo ship will be announced additionally.

Progress MS-13: launch date updated

During the pre-flight preparation of the Progress MS-13 cargo ship at the Baikonur cosmodrome, RSC Energia specialists identified a remark on the onboard cable. The mismatch was resolved after replacing the cable.
Due to the need for additional checks, the launch of the Progress MS-13 ship was postponed to December 6, 2019, at 12:34 Moscow time.
12:34 MST = 09:34 UTC
***

Will the 2-day rendezvous be retained?

Will the 2-day rendezvous be retained?

A quick check of where ISS will be at launch time and associated phasing angles indicates they *might* be able to do a fast-track rendezvous on the 6th.  Do not read this as a confirmation... just a "they might be able to" if crew wake/sleep times align and Dragon's arrival are all aligned just right.  The likely answer is no.  It will perform a 2-day rendezvous to avoid a Dragon/Progress overlap and give the crews time to work both vehicles.
