ESA announced the launch date of the first Vega-C launch!

VV21 is scheduled to launch on July 7 at 11:13 UTC (07:13 EST). The first launch will deploy the Italian LARES-2 satellite and six European research CubeSats into orbit.

SN, Ariane 6 launch debut pushed into 2023, June 13
Quote
European Space Agency Director General Josef Aschbacher said June 13...Ariane 6 is set to fly “some time” in 2023 during a BBC interview without giving a reason for the delay.

"Six CubeSats make a secondary payload package. AstroBio CubeSat (Italy) will test a solution for detecting biomolecules in space. Greencube (Italy) carries an experiment to grow plants in microgravity. ALPHA (Italy) aims to help understand phenomena related to Earth’s magnetosphere, such as the Northern and Southern Lights.

Three other CubeSats – Trisat-R (Slovenia), MTCube-2 (France) and Celesta (France) will study the effects of a harsh radiation environment on electronic systems."

Cross-post; first Ariane 6 launch will be VA262:

The official declined to provide a new, specific launch target for Ariane 6's debut flight. (A separate source has told Ars the working date is no earlier than April 2023). The new launch target is expected to be revealed on July 13 during a joint news conference with European space officials.

ESA official: No single event caused the latest Ariane 6 delay, and it’s unclear who will have to pay for it
written by Peter B. de Selding June 16, 2022

PARIS — The months-long delay in the inaugural flight of Europe’s heavy-lift Ariane 6 rocket, confirmed the week of June 13, came after technical reviews of the vehicle’s upper-stage testing and the launch-sequence software managing the rocket and its launch pad, a European Space Agency (ESA) official said.

There was no single event that precipitated the announcement that Ariane 6’s first flight would slip into 2023, with a more-precise estimate to await further review between now and mid-July, the official said.

While moving closer to the Vega C Maiden Flight, let us introduce you our next VEGA C flight #VV23!

VV23 will be the first #VEGAC #Rideshare Mission of January 2023 in a SSO at 10.30 LTDN

We have the 3 last seats available to embark last minute passengers at a Special Rate!

main payload unknown

If there was a main payload on this flight it wouldn't be the first Vega C rideshare mission, as VV21 already features LARES 2 and a SSMS deployer.

I think the text says it will be the first Vega C rideshare flight without main payload, like it was the case on VV16.

VV21 is an ESA mission
I think the available Vega-C launches are too valuable to waste them on umpteen Cubesats.
So I belive there are one or two main payloads.

Definitely, this means a delay of the VV23 mission from Q4/2022 to 2023.
There are different statements about the orbit of Kompsat-7, but I haven't read LTDN 10:30 yet.
The launch is probably later.  ???

Cross-post:
NextSpaceFlight lists a launch with a satellite for Eutelsat in November that will expend B1049

Based on the Eutelsat launch schedule this could be any of 10B, Hotbird 13F, Hotbird 13G.  All of them are electric propulsion and due to enter service in either H1 2023 or Q2/Q3 2023.

Launch on Vega-C.

Airbus est le maître d'oeuvre de la mission et OHB fournit l'instrument. Le satellite FORUM, d'un poids de 883 kg, sera placé sur une orbite polaire à une altitude de 830 km et son lancement est prévu sur un lanceur Vega-C depuis Kourou, en Guyane, en 2027.

Funny point : now that we know all Ariane 5 flights will be completed before Ariane 6 1st flight, it appears 1st Ariane 6 flight, with 62 version, will be VA262  ;D

There are 14 Vega C launches on the vehicle’s manifest through 2025, including five in 2023 and four each in 2024 and 2025. Bianchi said the launches are for a mix of institutional customers, such as ESA, the European Union and the Italian Space Agency ASI, as well as commercial customers that he did not identify.

Hm ? recalculated:
5+4+4=13,
+2022 VV21 and VV22 (?) =15 ???
So not counting ESA's Vega-C launch VV21 or is VV22 Pléiades Neo Jan. 2023?

Next: Classic Vega no more?

Now, the ESA Council has officially cut ties with Roscosmos on this joint project as a result of the war in Ukraine and ongoing sanctions, ESA's Director General Josef Aschbacher wrote Tuesday on Twitter.

There will be more details shared about the future of the mission on July 20, he said.
The ESA has been considering working more closely with NASA moving forward since it became clear the agency needed "to sever" its ties with Russia, Aschbacher said.
"Geopolitically, it is clear that we need to sever our ties with Russia, and this decision has been made by the member states," Aschbacher previously told CNN. "So yes, it's really unfortunate for all the science and technology and the engineers who have been working on this for four decades. But there is no other choice to make."

However, ESA announced March 17 it was suspending cooperation with Russia on ExoMars in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. That requires ESA to find not just a new launch for the mission but also replacing the landing platform. That meant pushing the launch back to at least 2026, ESA Director General Josef Aschbacher said at the time, adding that “even that is very challenging.”

Speaking at a May 3 meeting of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program Analysis Group (MEPAG), Jorge Vago, ExoMars project scientist at ESA, said he doubted a new lander could be ready by 2026. “It is theoretically possible, but in practice we think it would be very difficult to reconfigure ourselves and produce our own lander for 2026,” he said. “Realistically, we would be looking at a launch in 2028.”

The first commercial launch of Vega C is scheduled in November 2022. The flight, designated VV22, will deliver Pléiades Neo 5 and 6, a pair of satellites wholly funded, manufactured and operated by Airbus.
