These were unconfirmed before so I didn't post them, but it seems that BF-113 and BF-114 are indeed 169786 and 169787. At least the latter is already flying.

Greets,
BF-113 as well.

Yesterday we've seen 169794 (a B-model) flying. We don't have any tie-ups to this point. Will become clear in the future.
