If the Kanopus-V # 5 and #6 s/c will operate as members of a constellation with the other previous Kanopus satellites in SSO:

Then can a deduction be made as to where in the constellation these new s/c will be placed?

And therefore, a launch window?

Helios Wire are launching a satellite on this flight, probably called Helios Wire 3.

https://spacenews.com/helios-wire-sees-a-hidden-fortune-in-finding-lost-assets/

"Helios is preparing to launch its first satellite in October on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. The firms previous attempt to send a satellite into orbit in November 2017 was unsuccessful because it was riding on a Russian Soyuz-2.1b rocket that failed. Helios plans to send another satellite into orbit on a Soyuz in December and a third on a February Soyuz flight."
