I read all Dnepr rocket launches were cancelled and Dnepr will not be used anymore, Confused?

anik,

Sich-2 is already at Yasny for a long time (since the end of 2010), the rest of the passangers are waiting for "come" signal from Kosmotras, which is supposed to be issued this week or the next.

Green light is on for all the participants for this launch campaign;

Nigeriasat-2 & X will arrive in Yasny next week, RASAT will arrive on the week after.

Cubesats from Roma and Washington will follow the schedule.

The launch is estimated by the 1st or 2nd week of July.

It turns 180 - as all Dnepr upperstages do.

Its not a "service module", its an ICBM MIRV bus and is an integral part of each and every Dnepr.

BTW, the animation is not particularly accurate.

Do we know the reason for the repeated delays?
