Taifun-3 ?

Taifun-3 [Yuzhnoye]

Taifun-3 was an improved version of the Taifun-2 series radar calibration satellites.

This series was approved in 25 December 1984, but eventually none were launched. Taifun-3 would have ejected subsatellites of different shapes (spherical, cylindrical, cone-shaped). Both Kosmos-3M and Tsiklon-3 were considered as launch vehicles.
