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
