Luch-5B satellite is on Briz-M upper stage inside MIK 92A-50 building on October 21st.

 With the launch of Luch-5A and Amos-5, Amos-5 was attached to the Briz-M and the smaller Luch-5A attached to Amos-5. Luch-5A was dropped off first in an inclined orbit. After another Briz-M burn Amos-5 was delivered to 0° GSO orbit.

 Luch-5B unlike Luch-5A does not feature the COSPAS/SARSAT antennas on top. Yamal-300K unlike Amos-5 does feature additional antennas on top.

 So this time around they are swapping positions. Yamal-300K to 0° first then Luch-5B to an inclined GSO?

 Luch-5V is also to feature COSPAS/SARSAT, so will it sit on top of Kazsat-3 for that launch?

Yes, for Intelsat-23 and Luch-5B/Yamal-300K. But if I have understood correctly these upper stages will be returned to Moscow. Other upper stages will be used for these launches.

 So what was the serial number of the original Briz-M for Yamal-300K/Luch-5B, and when was a replacement delivered?

Original Briz-M was 99534 then changed to 99533 and then again to 99534, and finally to 99533 again. I have no information about the arrival dates to Baykonur.

Didn't see this on the ILS site so this must be a gov. launch?

What video link?

Yes, it is indeed a federal launch. Realtime video will most likely be through the Center for Ground-Based Space Infrastructure Facilities Operation known as ЦЭНКИ LINK: http://www.tsenki.com/en/broadcast/ The link for this mission shall become available not long after Progress M-17M launches to ISS).

Anyone have the launch timeline and target orbits for the two satellites? Looks like Khrunichev is playing hide-and-seek again: their live data page lists the next launch as EchoStar 16.

Anyone got the launch timeline and target orbits data available? It's a pain trying to find them when Khrunichev is silent, the NK forums down while trying to move to a new server and this being a non-ILS launch....  :-X

As Luch-5A/Amos-5 launch involved just about the same spacecraft masses, I would assume Luch-5B/Yamal-300K will have a comparable launch profile as described here

Difference probably will be that Yamal-300K will be dropped off 1st in 0° orbit followed by a burn to 5° orbit for Luch-5B - opposite to the Luch-5A/Amos-5.

Andrey, do you also got the orbit parameters of each of the orbits following the four Briz-M burns? Thanks!
