Planned Russian space launches(suborbital launches are not included!)2018Date Time (UTC) Satellite(s) Rocket/Upper stage CosmodromeNET September NET December - three 14F132 Rodnik satellites [block-16] Rokot/Briz-KM Plesetsk, 133/3Changes on September 4
I wonder if there will be a space launch during the big military exercise Russia will be doing on 11-15th September.During 1982 exercise, there were three launches. And there was one in February 2004...
The launch of a triplet of Rodnik or Strela-3M satellites, collectively "blok no. 16," is listed as occurring no earlier than this month. (This is very far from a guarantee that the launch WILL happen in September 2018!)Quote from: Satori on 08/21/2018 01:24 pmPlanned Russian space launches(suborbital launches are not included!)2018Date Time (UTC) Satellite(s) Rocket/Upper stage CosmodromeNET September NET December - three 14F132 Rodnik satellites [block-16] Rokot/Briz-KM Plesetsk, 133/3Changes on September 4If so, this could be the next Russian orbital launch.It could also be the next orbital launch from Plesetsk. It could be the first of three remaining Rokot launches (if there are any more Rokot launches at all).Thread: Rokot futureIt would launch the next three satellites to receive a "Kosmos" designation.***Here's a thought that could apply to this launch; cross-posted:Quote from: Nicolas PILLET on 08/31/2018 07:57 pmI wonder if there will be a space launch during the big military exercise Russia will be doing on 11-15th September.During 1982 exercise, there were three launches.

Can we just get this down on the thread one more time, as I can then link to it when people on Twitter complain?Rokot. Not Rockot.Fire away!
Assuming all goes as currently planned and successfully, this satellite triplet should be Kosmos 2530, 2531, and 2532.

I always thought that "Rockot" came about because some nerks thought that Rokot was Russian for "rocket".
Rockot actually is the second half of the title of the European launch provider, Eurockot, that used the Rokot-KM on several occasions such as three Sentinel satellites, the Swarm mission, and the first GRACE mission.
Copy all. Do we know of a window yet?
Looks like the launch will be at 02:00 - 03:30 UTC on November 30.The air space closure zones are similar to those for previous Rokot/Rodnik missions.https://twitter.com/Nextlaunch/status/1067636648454823936
Can you type a launch window in this thread. Thanks.
The window is now open. Not sure why the thread says the launch is approximately half hour later.
Launch success! Launch time was at 02:27 UTC.https://www.interfax.ru/russia/640111The booster block "breeze-km " with a cluster of three military satellites separated from the rocket "Rokot "Moscow. November 30. INTERFAX.RU-separated from the rocket "Rokot " booster block "Breeze-km " with a cluster of three military satellites, reported on Friday in the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. "Space head of the space rocket of the Light class" Rokot "As a part of the booster block " Breeze-km "and three spacecraft launched in the interests of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, in the estimated time-05:33 MSK nominally separated from the second Stages of the launch vehicle "Rokot ",-said in a statement.The devices will come out in about two hours on the calculation orbits. Launch of the Rocket "Rokot " from Plesetsk Cosmodrome was held on November 30 at 5:27 MSK.This is the second launch of the Light class "Rokot" launcher from Plesetsk Cosmodrome in 2018. The previous start of the "Rokota " was held in April this year.The first launch of the space rocket "Rokot " took place from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome on May 16, 2000. In total during this period 29 launches of this rocket were carried out from the cosmodrome, about 70 spacecraft of different purpose were taken to orbit.The "Rokot" Light class launch vehicle was created as part of a conversion program based on the RS-18 intercontinental ballistic missile. The "Rokot " consists of a block of accelerators (first and second stages) and a cosmic head part consisting of a booster block "Breeze-km ", a head fairing, a transitional system, an intermediate compartment and a payload compartment."Rokota " is manufactured by the Khruniceva Center.
