Rockot Places Three Russian Satellites into Orbit
On January 15, 2013 a Rockot launch vehicle using a Breeze-KM upper stage successfully launched three military communication satellites into orbit. The launch took place at Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Northern Russia. All satellites were injected precisely into their target orbit. This first launch of a Rockot in 2013 will be followed by further Russian federal launches as well as the combined launch of three Swarm satellites by Eurockot Launch Services this year.
