    That makes 421 pieces from the 1999-025 launch, already the fourth greatest
    number of pieces from a single launch, and as you say, counting. 
    Here are the three leaders, as of Ralph's post (from my slightly out of date
    spreadsheet version of Jonathan McDowell's satellite catalogue):
     SSN    Int Desig   Piece
    27721  1965-082UT    474
    27596  1986-019VN    493
    29036  1994-029AET   714
