Also of note is the signing, at the Paris Air Show of June 2017, of contracts with Arianespace for three Vega/Vega C flights:
• one for the launch of the Italian Space Agency’s Prisma optical satellite;
• two for the launch of Airbus Defense Space’s VD20 earth observation satellites.
A contract was also signed for the launch with Vega C of the 2nd generation Cosmo Sky Med satellite.

Summary of deductions re: identity of payloads on a hypothetical VA255, as of the opening of 2020.

See also thread: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=49830.0

https://www.arianespace.com/press-release/in-celebrating-its-40th-anniversary-arianespace-confirms-the-companys-geostationary-market-segment-leadership-and-gears-up-for-a-record-number-of-launches/

Quote
2020: In addition to the inaugural flights of Vega C and Ariane 6, up to 20 launches could be carried out to deploy more than 300 satellites.

> Up to 12 launches by Ariane 5, Soyuz and Vega from the Guiana Space Center:

- Five Ariane 5 missions to geostationary transfer orbit, all for commercial/export operators:

[My added notes in red.]
  Eutelsat                  Eutelsat Konnect VA251; Eutelsat Quantum VA254
  ISRO                      GSAT-30 VA251
  SKY Perfect JSAT     JCSat-17 VA252
  KARI                      GEO-KOMPSAT-2B VA252
  B-SAT                     BSAT-4b VA253
  Intelsat and NGIS    counts as one payload Galaxy 30 and MEV-2 VA253
  Embratel Star One   Star One D2 VA254
<snip>

In reply posts, we deduced that possible payloads, for a launch in 2020, could include:
An unnamed Intelsat comsat and EDRS-D.

We've since learned that neither satellite or payload would launch in 2020.

Another hypothetical payload for a hypothetical VA255 is SatKomHan 1:
https://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/satkomhan-1.htm .

We haven't learned anything more about this satellite.

To summarize: Deduction allowed us to determine what a hypothetical (as-of-start-of-2020) VA255 pair of geostationary-bound satellites would not be.

Clarification or correction welcome.

How do we know that a Galileo pair will take the premier flight? Would this still be true as the premier flight is delayed to late 2021?

The Heinrich Hertz satellite will be launched into GEO in Q4 2021. With a mass of 3.5 tons, the satellite will lift off from the European Kourou space center in French-Guyana.
...
Launch: A launch of the Heinrich-Hertz spacecraft is planned for 2022. In 2017, OHB signed a contract with Arianespace for the launch of the H2SAT mission on Ariane-5ECA from Kourou

René said Ovzon-3’s Ariane 5 launch is planned for the second half of 2021, and didn’t experience a change in schedule through the switch in vehicles.

James Webb Space Telescope will “absolutely” not launch in March
"This team has stayed on its toes and pushed this telescope forward."

by Eric Berger - Jun 10, 2020 5:19 pm UTC

On Wednesday, the chief of NASA's science programs said the James Webb Space Telescope will not meet its current schedule of launching in March 2021.

"We will not launch in March," said Thomas Zurbuchen, the space agency's associate administrator for science. "Absolutely we will not launch in March. That is not in the cards right now. That's not because they did anything wrong. It's not anyone's fault or mismanagement."

.

The two 2021 Ariane 5 institutional flights would be for JWST and MTG-I 1?

If so, will MTG-I 1 launch with a co-passenger as yet TBD?

Here is the complete list of satellites that will fly on Vega VV-16.
I have calculated the weights marked "estimated" based only on the CubeSats format, the weights in yellow were communicated by Arianespace.

Note that the name of the first satellite has not been revealed...

The total mass of the satellites is 756 kg, and the mass of the SSMS structure is 554 kg.

I have confirmation that VV-16 is postponed to June 21 at 1h51 and 10 seconds UTC.
Currently 5 employees are contaminated by Covid, but the decision was made to launch Vega anyway without delay. VA-253 could be delayed if they close CSG again.
