Launch delayed: looks like there's a problem with SES-4! (Sirius FM-6 and SES-4 are both of the LS-1300 model by SS/L)

Latest news from Russian sources indicated that Sirius FM-6 will be shipped back to SS/L's factory for additional checks on the deployment mechanism of the solar panels, delaying its launch by about 4 months. The next Proton launch will occur on March 20 (Intelsat 22?)

For what it is worth, SES-4 is reported to have deployed it's solar panels ( http://www.satellitetoday.com/st/headlines/SES-4-Deploys-Solar-Arrays-Heads-to-GEO-Orbit_38357.html ) so this "issue" in the novosti-kosmonavtiki threads did not prevent deployment.

Sounds like an abundance of caution issue. They see/saw/know something that they want corrected.

Art LeBrun pointed out the news article over in the SES-4 thread http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=27107.msg863847#msg863847

I have changed the title of this thread since the article refers to a possible Proton launch resumption from early fall 2013

Just to clarify this is the second Briz-M to be delivered, after the first was used for Echostar-16.

Also, oddly that press release has been amended to the to 30th September; rather then issuing a new press release?
