I've just found an old news about this spacecraft on Khartron-Arkos website :

Quote
24 Aпреля 2003

Выведено на орбиту изделие 71Х6 № 7126 универсальной системы наблюдения за земной поверхностью "Око-1" (Россия). Из-за возникших неполадок изделие в эксплуатацию не поступило.
Самое долгоживущее изделие 71Х6 № 7124 было выведено на орбиту 25.08.2001 г. и продолжает функционировать по сегодняшний день.
Начата модернизация СУ изделий 71Х6. Пуск изделия № 7128 с модернизированной СУ запланирован на 2010 г.

Is it known whether this launch will use Proton-K 310-13 or 310-18?

Sorry, I meant 410, not 310. Thanks for the information.

Do you know what is happening with 410-13? Somebody said it was going to be used for the GLONASS launch in December 2007, but that used a Proton-M. Is it likely to launch another payload, or is 410-18 going to be the last Proton-K to fly?

 Along with 41013 there is a missing DM serial number. Proton-K 41014 introduced some changes, possibly that explains it's absence?

Just a reminder that the upper stage is DM-2, not Briz-M. This could be the last mission for a Blok-DM on Proton.

According to this NK forum thread, its a DM-2, which will be delivered in early February:

They gave a production number for the Blok-DM:

ДМ-2 №117Л

DM-03?
According to this NK forum thread, its a DM-2, which will be delivered in early February:

I think he was referring to the fact that the DM-03 is still flying on the Proton-M, so this won't be the last Blok-DM on a Proton even if it is the last DM-2.

Говорят, что разгонные блоки ДМ-03 №2Л, №3Л и №4Л полностью изготовлены. Поскольку они предназначены для выведения "Глонассов", то их сдали на хранение. Первым в 2012 году полетит ДМ-03 №5Л с военным спутником, блок должен быть изготовлен до конца этого года.

A poster on the Novosti Kosmonavtiki forum posted the launch time in Morse Code!  ;D (link)

Quote from: dcstssu
− − − − −    − − − −     − − −     −    − − −

I translated the message, and it seems to indicate that the launch is at 09:42 Moscow Time = 05:42 UTC.
