 To answer a question from Nicolas Pillet I reviewed the schedules of satellite delivery and launch dates that had been published on the Tsenki website. They covered three months and were updated about once a month. Unfortunately I only have paper copies.

In September and October 2004
410-08 / 15LEkspress-AM1
410-09 / 104LGLONASS/GLONASS-M

November 2004
410-09 / 104LGLONASS/GLONASS-M

December 2004
410-09 / 104LGLONASS/GLONASS-M
410-09 / 16LEkspress-AM2 *
* - дата начала подготовки КА может быть уточнена исходя из сроков поставки РН и РБ на космодром.
Both the same?

January and February 2005
410-09 / 16LEkspress-AM2

March 2005
410-10 / 16LEkspress-AM2

April 2005
410-07 / 103LEkspress-AM3 *
* - даты поставки, начало подготовки и запуска будут уточнены по результатам подписания пешония о заимствовании РН и РБ с Минобороны России.
 If memory serves Ekspress-AM3 and KAZSAT were to be launced on Proton-M (I have a diagram somewhere). With the delay to both KAZSAT and a 71Kh6 Khrunichev offered to swap Ekspress-AM3 for 71Kh6 as a dual launch partner for KAZSAT (I think I have a diagram too). However with the delay to 71Kh6 they had to borrow another rocket from the Russian M.O.D. To repay the debt Khrunichev supplied 410-14 and 410-16.

I have a diagram here :
http://www.kosmonavtika.com/satellites/kazsat/kazsat-15.gif

Thank you for your answer Stan, but the situation is still unclear for me.
In your mind, which payloads had 410-07, 410-09 and 410-10 ?

This is what I understand :

410-07 : Express AM3
410-09 : GLONASS (december 2004)
410-10 : Express AM2

 There is only one Proton-K left to launch so what happened to 41013?

Quote
 Последний экземпляр «Протона-К» № 41018 изготовлен по заказу КВ МО, принят заказчиком и хранится третий год на РКЗ в варианте запуска КА «71Х6».
http://www.khrunichev.ru/main.php?id=19&nid=42

Quote from: ужеСтудент
Не совсем ясно:
Протон №410-11 Изготовлен в 2005 для МО (долг за Экспресс-АМ3). Взят для Казсат.
Протон №410-12 Изготовлен в 2005. Использован для Глонасс 25.12.05
Протон №410-13 Изготовлен в 2006. Передан в МО?
Протон №410-14 Изготовлен в 2006. Передан в МО (за Экспресс-АМ3)?
Протон №410-15 Изготовлен в 2006. Будет использован для Глонасс 25.12.06
Протон №410-16 Будет изготовлен в 2007. Будет передан в МО (за Казсат)?
Протон №410-17 Будет изготовлен в 2007. Будет использован для Глонасс в 2007?
Протон №410-18 Будет изготовлен в 2007. Будет использован для Глонасс в 2007?
А где же Протон-К для Экспресс-АМ33?
Похоже ли все это на правду?
http://www.novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4056

Is that last as in manufacture, or last to be launched?
I was told the last launch.

 The full 5645 kg PSM GTO 1500 m/sec ∆-V to GSO performance capability of the Proton M Breeze M is
currently available to Customers and has been demonstrated on three missions as of September 2004.

http://www.ilslaunch.com/launch-services/ils-proton-breeze-m-launch-vehicle/proton-heritage
Quote
 As part of a continuous improvement program, the Phase I configuration of Proton Breeze M launcher enhancements carried out nearly all of the commercial missions in the 2004 to 2009 period.  The last commercial Phase I Proton Breeze M flew the Astra 1M mission for SES in November 2008.
 The Phase II Proton Breeze M rocket flew for the first time in July 2007 with the successful launch of the DirecTV 10 satellite.  The last commercial Phase II Proton Breeze M flew the Skyterra 1 mission for LightSquared in December 2010.
 The Phase III Proton Breeze M launch vehicle was flight proven on the Russian Federal dual mission of Express AM-44 and Express MD-1 in February 2009 and performed its first commercial launch in March 2010 with the Echostar XIV satellite. The Proton Breeze M phase III configuration is the current standard configuration for ILS Proton. This configuration provides 6150 kg of GTO performance, which is an increase of 1150 kg over the original Proton Breeze M, while maintaining the fundamental design configuration.

Modifications to Proton-M

Proton-M1st StageInterstage2nd Stage2nd Stage Forward Interstage
53501 / 88503 and 53502 / 88504    
53503 / 88505 and 53504 / 88506    
Phase I Enhanced    
Phase II EnhancedReduction of tanks mass by using thinner tank skins and bottoms but based on the same aluminium alloys.Composite structure (carboepoxy isogrid) replaces metal in aft bay stringer-and-ring frame.Reduction of tanks mass by optimising the weight of structural elements: aft ends, skins and rings using the same aluminium alloys.Composite structure (carboepoxy isogrid) replaces metal in equipment bay stringer-and-ring frame.
First flew on 53521.
Phase III Enhanced  Tank wall thickness. 
Phase IV Enhanced  Tank reduced tolerances. New manufacturing tooling, 5 axis milling equipment.100% composite (improves winds aloft limit).

Proton-M3rd StageOther Proton Changes  Briz-MPayload Fairing
53501 / 88503 and 53502 / 88504 Improved propellant feed system in the first and second stages.
Locations of flight instrumentation and of the associated support structures have been changed in the instrument bays of the first and third stages. Loads on the instrument bay of the second stage have been changed. Telemetry system sensors and antenna-feeder devices have been changed. Connector components in cables have been changed. Dynamic characteristics of the LV flight control system actuators have been changed.
RD-275 1st stage propulsion at 102%.
RD-0210 and RD-0211 2nd stage propulsion at 105%.
  
53503 / 88505 and 53504 / 88506 Fuel consumption optimisation algorithms are used in LV guidance system. LV is made lighter by removing some telemetry instrumentation. Flight profile with 180 km high parking orbit is used.Upper stage mass is reduced by removing some telemetry instrumentation.
Flew instead with Proton-K 41001 and 41003.
PLF design optimisation resulted in reduced PLF mass.
Phase I Enhanced LV mass is reduced by using isogrid design and high-strength aluminium alloys.Upper stage mass is reduced by using high-potential structural materials, improving production processes and improving certain structural elements. 
Phase II EnhancedComposite structure made of integral carboepoxy panels replaces metal in stringer-and-ring frame for reduction of aft bay mass.RD-276 1st stage propulsion.New configuration of the avionics bay due to (i) the use of two new high-pressure tanks (80 litres) to replace six smaller tanks, and (ii) relocation of command instruments towards the centre to mitigate shock loads when the additional propellant tank is being jettisoned; replacement of metal bottles for helium with those manufactured using composite materials; use of additional propellant tank (APT) with an upgraded prime structure; 11D458M vernier thrusters with higher specific impulse. 
Phase III EnhancedThird stage propellant depletion.Improved battery design.Power switch upgrade.Lighter fairing (lower density fillers and lower shell thickness).
Phase IV EnhancedTank alloy change. Improved avionics bay design; 100% composite. Improved COPV tank design. Integrated RF/TLM system. Telemetry system weight reduction.Composite shell optimisation.

Proton-K 33602 and 33701
 Enhanced rockets for Mir and Kvant [Proton Mission Planner’s Guide, Revision 6, December 2004] [source].

Proton-K 35301 to 38502
 65 rockets fitted with RD-253 operating at 102% [Proton Mission Planner’s Guide, Issue 1, Revision 4, March 1, 1999]. Rockets for Fobos-1 and Fobos-2, Kvant-2, Kristall, Priroda and Spektr. Also Astra-1G and Astra-2A at customer’s request.

 In 1998 Khrunichev began to realise a program for reduction of contamination to the impact area of the Proton’s first stage. For decreasing pollution, immediately after discarding of the spent first stage a valve opens to the tanks for evaporating any residual propellants. In 1999 were carried out three launchings of a new series. Proton-K of series 38901, prepared in 1997; did not feature this system; the discharge of propellant in the impact area was about 6 tonnes [source].
 I have marked these with PV but this is not the official designation.

Proton-K 39501 and 39502
 Proton-M precursors.

 Proton-M is fitted with upgraded 2nd and 3rd stage engines. The aim was to increase reliability and in addition a thrust enhancement of 5%. Upgraded engines were to be fitted to Proton-K from 40002 [source] [source], but with the thrust unchanged.
 Following two failures in 1999, both attributed to 2nd stage engines, upgraded engines were instead diverted to existing rockets. 39201’s engines were replaced with the 1st set, 38902’s replaced with the 2nd set and 39801’s replacements were the 3rd set [source] [source]. 39301 (for Космос 2371) also received replacement engines [source] [source]. In order not to cause a delay 39301 and 40202 (for Sirius-FM3) swapped 2nd and 3rd stages [source].
 After inspections no change of engines was required for 39902 (for Garuda) and 40001 (for Sirius-FM1) [source], and 39402 (for Ekspress-A3) [source].

Proton-K 39801 Zvezda
2nd and 3rd stage engines replaced following the 2nd Proton failure in 1999.
 Manufactured to TRKK standards which applies to manned missions. It bans night shifts, allows no process deviations. The whole operation is carried out under special control beginning from the engine manufacture to the rocket assembly itself.
 So why would they need to replace the 2nd and 3rd stage engines or were the engines already upgraded?

Re: A few bits of information about the Proton rocket
« Reply #37 on: 07/16/2011 08:01 AM »
 The RD-275 powered phase I Proton-M rockets timed to ignite their 2nd stage at 119·1 seconds before jettisoning the 1st at 123·4 seconds.

 For the increased thrust of RD-276, phase II Proton-M introduced timings of 2nd stage ignition at 115·4 and staging at 119·6 seconds.

 However the two underloaded missions for SES-1 and IS-16, featuring RD-276 on the first stage, saw corresponding timings of 118·6 and 122·9. It raises the question if the engines did not go to full throttle; for RD-276 this happens at six seconds after liftoff.

 As part of a continuous improvement program, the Phase I configuration of Proton Breeze M launcher enhancements carried out nearly all of the commercial missions in the 2004 to 2009 period.  The last commercial Phase I Proton Breeze M flew the Astra 1M mission for SES in November 2008.
 The Phase II Proton Breeze M rocket flew for the first time in July 2007 with the successful launch of the DirecTV 10 satellite.  The last commercial Phase II Proton Breeze M flew the Skyterra 1 mission for LightSquared in December 2010.
 The Phase III Proton Breeze M launch vehicle was flight proven on the Russian Federal dual mission of Express AM-44 and Express MD-1 in February 2009 and performed its first commercial launch in March 2010 with the Echostar XIV satellite. The Proton Breeze M phase III configuration is the current standard configuration for ILS Proton. This configuration provides 6150 kg of GTO performance, which is an increase of 1150 kg over the original Proton Breeze M, while maintaining the fundamental design configuration.
