based on some talks there most likely will not be a fourth Kosmos on this flight but probably next since there is an unflown payload at the MIK

Briz-KM originally manufactured to launch Kanopus-V-IK, since moved to Soyuz-2-1A.
Is № 72526 for a Kanopus satelite?
No, Gonets.

Is the unflown payload DOSAAF-85?  Given the previous Gonets-M triplet launch last year, it appears that it was scheduled to launch with that set, but then not.  Link to topic below:
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=32815.0

Link to satellite's page on Gunter's Space Page:
http://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/dosaaf-85.htm

If DOSAAF-85 doesn't launch on this flight, then when?

Curious,

Its launch can occur on any flight that aligns with its predecessor SC's, its just a matter of being made ready for a launch instead of overrunning on processing. there is 50% chance it will be launched otherwise ballast will be in its place on the launcher.

Looks like this launch is almost certain to slip past tomorrow due to "unspecified technical reasons": http://www.militarynews.ru/story.asp?rid=1&nid=368274

According to http://tass.ru/kosmos/1806760 it's a first stage engine problem that needs inspection. The rocket was rolled back to the HIF.

I wonder if this is related to what seems to be a UR-100N failure during a hypersonic reentry test launched from Dombarovskiy on February 26?

So let's all wait to hear if this one launches on time!

They have all been launched around the same time of the year and mainly into the same plane.

Eighth orbital launch in six days.  Four of them were Navsat launches.  Navsat season I suppose.  Maybe something about the period of vernal equinox.

Thanks. The first one carried out various manoeuvres once on orbit, but I never saw whether the second one followed the same course of action and is the first still manoeuvring today. The last I saw on Russian Space Web was references from late January this year to further manoeuvres.

TLEs out for three payloads and the Briz-M - nothing yet for a putative 4th payload.
Briz-M in 1170 x 1504 km disposal orbit, rest in 1494 x 1506 km, so looks like mission success for the Gonets and Briz.
I recall that Kosmos-2499 took a while to be discovered and cataloged.

The object currently classified as 40555/2015-020D is transmitting at the same radio frequency as COSMOS-2491 and COSMOS-2499. It is highly likely that 40555/2015-020D is COSMOS-2504.

Kosmos-2504 has begun manuevers in orbit.
On Apr 9 the orbit was raised by about 3 km. Further changes continued on Apr 13-14.

There appears to have been a rendezvous between Kosmos-2504 and the Briz-KM upper stage around April 16, with the Briz-KM eventually ending up in a higher orbit.

Here's an update on the website of Anatoly Zak, who speculates there may have been some kind of physical contact between the two objects.

As noted by Anatoliy and Igor in other forums, Kosmos-2504 made a major orbit change on Jul 3.

On Jul 3 around 0710 orbit changed from 1172 x 1506 km to 1117 x 1455 km
Later on Jul 3 this was tweaked to 1119 x 1452 km  (or,  might be just a more accurate measurement)

The Briz-KM stage is still in a 1172 x 1506 km orbit, no change since the Apr 14 orbit perturbation noted by Anatoliy.

From 30 Mar 2017 till 20 Apr 2017 K2504 has descended in several paces by 500 km in perigee height.
