The Fregat upper stage separated from the Soyuz rocket's third stage.

The Fregat engine will perform multiple burns over the next four hours to put three Gonets data relay satellites and the Skif-D broadband tech demo satellite into two different orbits.

Thank you for the launch thread coverage, FST!



Cross-post:
17 - Fregat (142-53) at the end of transmission.

I'm sorry, I can't believe this.

https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=44836.msg2400622#msg2400622

"...this Gonets-M triplet was previously assigned 142-503."

then probably 142-503
Unless one is the stage itself and one is the transfer compartment/upper stage adapter. Both fregat sets were reportedly at the launch site at the time of processing. If there was a problem then they reverted but this is unknown.

Do we have updated TLEs ?

Do we know if the Block I and Fregat have deorbited ?
