"October 4, 2017 at the cosmodrome Vostochniy launched a comprehensive test launch complex. Launch vehicle (LV) "Soyuz-2.1a" together with the upper stage (RB) "Fregat" was taken from the technical to the launching complex and installed in the launching system. A mobile service tower was launched on the launching system and general tests of the space rocket "Fregat" systems."

why is this 2.1A assembled and taken to the pad, isn't there supposed to be a 2.1B for Meteor or something launching in november?

the 2.1B is not yet delivered
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=17286.msg1718700#msg1718700

and the 2.1A is now just a "dry-run" transportation to the launch pad

Or are they both meant to augment the preceding satellite's capability, creating a 3-satellite constellation?

January 23, 2018 at the cosmodrome EASTERN specialists of the companies of Roscosmos completed the assembly of the space head of the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket. In the assembly and testing building of space vehicles, the head fairing was swept to the Fregat upper stage with the spacecraft "Kanopus-V" No. 3 and No. 4 and satellites of the associated payload.

The images of the payload stack show (at least) 3 dummy payloads (2 larger identical cube shaped and a smaller one on the left side). Apparently there were some satellites de-manifested from this launch.

I've reviewed a previous Soyuz from this launch facility same camera angle.  Unfortunately, cloud cover blocks the view at booster separation.  I've also review launch at Baikonur and I"m able to see the booster separation but the camera angle, equipment could have been different.

Boy, this thread sure went quiet.  :-\

Update, I just realized the last launch from this launch site was a failure and the launch video abruptly ended after Second stage separation.

I actually think the boosters separating were actually seen in the video above - the "puff of smoke" from the separation were clearly seen and I think I can even make out one of the separated boosters. The camera zoom was probably too small to show the details.

Here's that "puff of smoke" and what looks like two of the separated boosters. Seems like the press release is saying that this is a successful launch, although Fregate still has to complete its mission. A first stage separation failure would have likely sent the payloads into the drink. Perhaps we didn't see the separation clearly due to less zoom on the camera.

"ROSKOSMOS. LV "SOYUZ-2.1A" WITH SC "KANOPUS-B" No. 3 AND 4 STARTS FROM COSMODROME EAST
02/01/2018 05:18

On February 1, 2018, a space rocket successfully launched from the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle, the Fregat upper stage, Kanopus-V space probes №3 and 4, and nine American and German small spacecraft passing load. This was the third launch from the first Russian civilian cosmodrome EASTERN.

In 8 minutes 48 seconds after the start, the staffing of the head unit from the third stage of the carrier rocket and the Fregat upper stage proceeded to fulfill the flight task for the delivery of spacecraft to the calculated orbits. The overclocking unit will have to "fly" the spacecraft in three orbits due to seven inclusions of the orientation engines and the propulsion system and take a course to enter the Earth's atmosphere. After completing the flight program, the Fregat upper stage will be flooded in the non-navigable region of the Pacific Ocean. The input of the accelerating unit into the atmosphere of the planet is planned at an altitude of 100 km approximately at 10:34 Moscow time.

The separation of the spacecraft of the main load "Canopus-B" No. 3 and 4 is planned one hour after the launch. "

Google translation below. Other payloads to separate from 4:33 to 4:50 UTC.

"ROSKOSMOS. SPACE APPLIANCES "KANOPUS-B" No. 3 AND No. 4 ARE REDUCED FOR DESIGN ORBITS
02/01/2018 06:51

On February 1, 2018, one hour after the start of the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle, the Fregat upper stage brought the main payload - the space probes of the Earth's remote sensing "Canopus-B" No. 3 and No. 4 to the calculated orbits. Separation of space vehicles passed regularly at 6:06 Moscow time and 6:12 Moscow time on the solar-synchronous circum-circular orbits.

After the separation of the spacecraft "Kanopus-V" No. 3 and 4 from the upper stage, the specialists of the Main Operational Control Group at the Mission Control Center (MCC) began to control their flight. In the near future, the satellites will begin to work as part of the space complex "Kanopus-V" in conjunction with the already launched into the orbit of the spacecraft "Canopus-B" No. 1 and spacecraft "Canopus-V-IC".

Meanwhile, the "Fregat" upper stage continues to fulfill the flight task of the launch campaign. He will deliver to the target orbits nine American and German small spacecraft S-Net, Lemur and D-Star One, launched as a passing payload under the contracts of OAO Glavkosmos. Separation of small space vehicles is scheduled from 07:33 Moscow time to 07:50 Moscow time."

Still only orbital data for nine objects from this launch, the two Kanopus in one orbit and seven others in a higher orbit.  There should be nine others, so have there been two separation failures?  If so, two payloads have presumably been de-orbited with the Fregat.

TU Berlin reports to have contact with all four S-Net satellites with three of them being tracked.

http://www.raumfahrttechnik.tu-berlin.de/menue/forschung/aktuelle_projekte/s_net/

Quote
* 2018.02.07: We are currently tracking TLEs: 43186, 43187, 43188. Satellite states are excellent.

* 2018.02.01: Ground contact with all four satellites was established. We are currently in LEOP.

* 2018.02.01: The launch of four S-NET satellites with Soyuz / Fregat from cosmodrome Vostochy has been successful

So if there were indeed two satellites not deployed, they should be among the cubesats.

By the end of the year, two more rockets will be launched from the Vostochny cosmodrome. In 2019, there'll be more launches. This was reported today by Roscosmos several hours later after successfully launching the Soyuz rocket carrier with 11 satellites on board.

So if there were indeed two satellites not deployed, they should be among the cubesats.
All four Lemurs now identified, radio amateurs report tracking D-Star, TUB says all four of its are OK, so why two short?

Only one to go then, maybe they're just hard to track?
