Strela-3M (Rodnik-S, 14F132)

Gonets-M [NPO PM]
(Strela-3M probably similar)

Strela-3M (also known as Rodnik-S) is an improved version of the Strela-3 military communications satellites.

The first one was launched on 21.12.2005 on a Kosmos-3M booster together with a Gonets-M satellite, which represents the civilian version. Later satellites were launched on Rokot-KM boosters.

Kosmos 2483 has not maneuvered after launch and was reportedly considered a complete loss.
