Quote
GomSpace has signed a 300,000 Euro (U.S.$341,000) development contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) for the initiation of a new GOMX-5 satellite mission to demonstrate new nanosatellite capabilities for the next generation of constellations requiring high speed communications links and high levels of manoeuvrability.
Quote
The mission will consist of two nanosatellites in the 20kg class with an improved platform for increased power handling and reliability. Further, the satellites will be equipped with a number of advanced communication technology payloads to be announced after final selection.
Quote
Launch for the GOMX-5 mission is foreseen to be in 2021.

“Two launches of the Soyuz-ST carrier rocket with the Fregat upper stage are scheduled for February 19 and March 26. Four or six British OneWeb British communication satellites are planned to be launched into the first launch, and four British O3b communications satellites in the second - Said the source agency.

Cross-posts re: TBC launch date delay of VA247:
Seeing a mention elsewhere that VA247 launch has been delayed to February 5.
True?

Also, it's a few days over 1 month to January 23, and there has been no news (that I have found) of the delivery of either payload to Kourou.

AFAIK VA247 is currently planned for early February (not confirmed) both spacecraft should normally arrive early January (also TBC)

Maybe I found the source for "VA247 on February 5th".

MOSCOW, December 14 - RIA News. The transfer of the launch of the first British communications satellites OneWeb from the Kourou cosmodrome using the Russian Soyuz-ST rocket is associated with a delayed launch from the same cosmodrome of the Indian apparatus, a source in the Russian rocket and space industry told RIA Novosti on Friday.
...
Earlier it was reported that the launch was postponed at the request of the British side.
"The launch was delayed due to the launch of the Indian satellite GSAT-31 on the Ariane-5 rocket on February 5. The reconfiguration of the spaceport equipment and the preparation for the new launch, which will be Soyuz-ST with the first OneWeb devices, takes about two weeks, "- said the agency interlocutor.

Is this the fault of Isro or Arianespace?

Quote
Arianespace and the French CNES space agency today announced that they have signed a launch contract for the first nanosatellite completely built by French industry, called ANGELS (ARGOS Néo on a Generic Economical and Light Satellite).

ANGELS will be launched as an auxiliary payload with the COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG 1) and CHEOPS satellites by a Soyuz rocket in 2019 from the Guiana Space Center, Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana (South America). It is jointly financed and developed by the French CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales) space agency and NEXEYA, an innovative industrial group active in the aerospace, defense, energy, rail and automotive markets.

Quote
Furthermore, after signing the Taranis satellite contract with CNES in 2012, this spacecraft will now be launched by Vega in 2020.
...
As many as 12 launches from CSG are now scheduled for 2019, including two institutional missions:

    Up to five Ariane 5, all dual launches, into geostationary transfer orbit (GTO), with the first planned on February 5, 2019 for customers Arabsat, Hellas Sat and “King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology” on one hand, and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on the other.
    Up to three Soyuz launches: the first launch for the OneWeb constellation, paving the way for upcoming launches from Baïkonur starting in the last quarter of 2019; a fifth O3b/SES mission; the COSMO-SkyMed/CHEOPS mission for the Italian space agency and defense ministry; and for ESA.
    Up to four Vega launches: PRISMA mission for the ASI Italian space agency, two Falcon Eye satellites for the United Arab Emirates, and the demonstration flight for multiple small satellite launches (SSMS) using Vega – a program initiated by ESA in 2016 with a contribution from the European Commission, designed to address institutional and commercial requirements in the promising new microsatellite market segment.

… as well as the Vega C qualification flight late 2019

VS-21 using Fregat-M upper stage, not Fregat-MT?
Your guess, or is there a source?
https://ria.ru/20190116/1549426711.html

The relevant paragraph (Bing translation). The first Russian launch is 4th quarter 2919.

 "The first six OneWeb communication satellites will be delivered to the Kourou Cosmodrome on January 22 to launch the Soyuz-STB missile with the "Fregat-M" booster, which is planned for February 20 ", the interlocutor of the agency said. ...

Fregat-M, that was to [ex]pect, for LEO makes the Fregat-MT probably little sense.
