Interesting...All the other launches of the Beidou-3 MEO satellite pairs thus far have been from LC2.

Thanks to upgrades in recent years both LC2 and LC3 can now handle all DF-5 based launcher series minus the ability to support manned launches even though the launchers can be launched from XSLC and was originally planned.
