Japan's SS-520 launch has now slipped into January, so this Zenit will be the last launch of 2017.

T-30 minutes. For some reason the Roscosmos Youtube feed from Tsenki is not very good.

Here's the Tsenki feed, which has better resolution, but stops and starts on me all the time.

T-25 minutes. Roscosmos is calling the vehicle Zenit-2SB, but the writing on the rocket says Zenit-3F.

It is actually a Zenit-2SB80 which equals Zenit-3F. This is in part done so that it fits on the launchers first stage as the text is put on at the factory in Ukraine.
