I may be wrong, but I think only the recon payload is made in Spb. The biggest part of Kobalt is actually the instrument module, not the return capsule. That one is defeinitely made in Samara and also serves as basis of Volga upper stage now under development.

However, licensing Kobalt (assuming Russian Government let it happen) would not in any way play on patriotic feelings the way Gemini does, even though it's a more complete system that's flying today.

You saying some roubles might make a difference?

Is the discussion going to return to SpaceOps' CCiCAP bid or is it time for the mods to split this thread?

It's a slow day....let it ride a bit yes?

Have anyone looked at this firms board of directors?   Some very interesting people there.
