YUZHMASH also informs the public that the production of the Zenit LV family continues. Right now two products are in active production. Another, under the national telecommunications satellite "Lybid", is waiting for financing.

On the rollout video for Angosat 1 is to see "A 164".
Has anyone recognized the rocket serial number on the pictures?

Unbooked flights

The Sea Launch flight manifest was posted without much fanfare on the Russian-language version of the corporate web site for the Sea Launch venture, apparently, shortly after the successful campaign to launch the Zenit rocket with the Angosat-1 satellite on Dec. 26, 2017.

Although the schedule detailed all the launch dates with accuracy to a month, it listed no customers or their payloads to be carried during any of these missions. It was unclear, whether Sea Launch was in negotiations with any potential riders at the time.

The description accompanying the schedule also said that the permanent office of the S7 company had been established at the home port of the Sea Launch vessels in Long Beach, California, to handle the tasks of re-activating the facility and resuming launch operations. Based on estimates from a monitoring group, the complex would be ready for operations in 2018, the S7 Group said.

The company also announced that the Russian firms RKK Energia, Roskosmos State Corporation and the Ukraine-based Zenit manufacturer Yuzhmash would be partners in Sea Launch, which would be managed from Moscow by the S7 KTS company, also known as S7 Space.

Sea Launch flight manifest as of December 2017:

Mission   Launch date   Payload
1   2019 December   ?
2   2020 April   ?
3   2020 July   ?
4   2020 December   ?
5   2021 March   ?
6   2021 June   ?
7   2021 September   ?
8   2021 December   ?
9   2022 March   ?
10   2022 June   ?
11   2022 September   ?
12   2022 December   ?

Has anyone found this newly-opened office?

Any news from our NSF Sea Launch vets that live in the area and/or are still "connected" to the remaining assets?

At the existing Sea-Launch complex in Long Beach, California where Boeing had its office there for the project. If you want the address search in Yellow Book or something for S7 Sea Launch Limited as that is the name of S7 Space's US operating segment.

I wonder how many Zenits are actually left?

There are references to one further Sea Launch rocket.
https://www.facebook.com/sealaunch/posts/540367662695511

In 2008 TsENKI ordered twelve RD171M engines. Only six were completed. The fifth was А174 and the sixth А175.

In 2015 a DM-SLB was completed by Energia. So was there an associated rocket waiting for it?

Based on serial numbers possibly three further Zenit-3F were planned. One leftover from Elektro-L №3 and one for Lybid?

222-01  222-01 - assigned to Lybid

Their are few mostly completed first and second stages that are in Ukraine minus their engines installed and several others in various stages of production that have resumed recently after a multiyear halt in production.

"On January 11, the Yuzhmash production plant in Dnipro, Ukraine, announced that under an April 2017 contract with S7 Sea Launch Limited, the company had already been manufacturing two Zenit rockets for delivery in 2018. The company was also expecting an additional order for three more Zenit rockets in February 2018, Yuzhmash said."
