CZ 3B/YZ 1 was the version used for the previous double launches.

This I believe is for the BDS launch after this pair.

This might be for the next pair (M13/14) after this launch......because we now get NOTAMs for this one and it's indeed on August 25 (LT)!

Please note this mission lasts about four hours to deploy and the forum will be down around that time confirmation of S/C Sep is expected:

https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=46224.0

So be aware that NSF may not be back until about 7 AM UTC.

T-0 is apparently at 23:53 UTC (this is a "breakfast launch" so local reports should be plenty  ;)).
Launch code is 07-92.

Let me know if that's good enough to put on the article or if we need more. Saw your "confirmation" tweet, thanks! Also, with the forum downtime later, can you all please tweet any launch images (I know they will come no sooner than four hours time) and tag @nasaspaceflight with them as the news site will stay up and I can add one to the article. And then post them here when the forum returns. Thanks! :)

Сичан /пров. Сычуань/, 25 августа /Синьхуа/ -- В субботу Китай с помощью ракеты-носителя "Чанчжэн-3Б" /серия "Великий поход"/ вывел на орбиту два навигационных спутника "Бэйдоу-3".
Это 11-й и 12-й спутники, запущенные Китаем для спутниковой навигационной системы "Бэйдоу-3".
Запуск был произведен сегодня в 07:52 по пекинскому времени с космодрома Сичан в юго-западной китайской провинции Сычуань. После более чем трехчасового полета спутники успешно вышли на заданные орбиты.
Новые спутники разработаны и изготовлены НИИ инновационных разработок микроспутников при Академии наук Китая.

Also looking for this. (Best guess is Y50 and Y9 based on sequence of earlier Beidou flights but would be nice
to get confirmation)

Objects are 43602-43605
Two objects with TLEs so far, one in the target orbit 21532 x 22193 km x 55.0 and one which must be the third stage in
a 192 x 18630 km transfer orbit
