What calibration kits does the firmware of an 8753A expect?

In the calibraiton menus of an 8753A one can chose from a number of connector types (N, 7 mm etc), but there is nothing to indiate what model of calibration kit is assumed. In contrast, in my 8720D, one can pick one of several different cal kits all having the same connector. If my memory serves me correctly, I can pick an 85032F or 85054B N calibration kits in the 8720D. But on the 8753A, I can chose N, but not select a particular N calibration kit. 

The calibration kits I have are: 

* 85032B (N, 6 GHz)
* 85033E (3.5 mm, 9 GHz). 
* 11866A (7mm, 2 GHz).

Are those supported in the firmware 8753A directly, or would one need to create a user calibration kit? 

I can't find any data on the 11866A, so I don't think it would be that easy to make a user cal kit for this, though I'm not that bothered about APC-7. I'm more concerned about the N than anything, and to a lesser extent the 3.5 mm.
