I am assuming that’s not a completely accurate image. TBH I am amazed that any kind of image has been released.

The SC Bus has also been used by Civilian programmes. The payload portion of the  model is based on this image released by TsNIRTI: http://russianspaceweb.com/images/spacecraft/military/elint/liana/lotos_payload_2.jpg
The image above on his site is a scale model of a Lotos-M (should be S) spacecraft. There are 2 Lotos-S ELINT payload configurations: one with Nuklon onboard and one without Nuklon. Liana system consists of Pion-NKS sea based ELINT with Radar and Lotos-S land based ELINT sats.

Is it speculated if any spacecraft now use large deployable mesh antennas, as wasn’t this something that it’s believed that US models had but Russian didn’t?

only Pion-NKS are known to use Russian style deployable mesh antennas of a design dating back to before the launch of MIR's Priroda module (77KSI).
