- the message says. The Defense Ministry does not give other details of the launch.

Earlier it was reported that the Russian military plans to put into orbit the third space satellite of the Unified Space System (CEN-3) "Tundra", designed to detect launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles. The first and second vehicles of this system were launched into space in 2015 and 2017, respectively, and received the designation Cosmos-2510 (CEN-1) and Cosmos-2518 (CEN-2).

In the future, the Tundra spacecraft should replace the Oko and Oko-1 satellites, which are part of the intercontinental ballistic missile launch detection system from the continental United States. In total, it is planned to deploy up to 10 new spacecraft by the 2022 year.

The new space tracking system will be able to not only detect ballistic missile launches from any surface, but also determine the parameters of their ballistic trajectory and the likely areas of destruction.

    Looking at the purpose of the satellites, the name "Eye" is more appropriate than "Tundra" ... but these are trifles. I am very glad for the successful launch. No video?

    According to the head of Roskosmos Dmitry Rogozin, the Vostochny Cosmodrome, which is located in the Amur Region, may well be named after Russian President Vladimir Putin.
    “I think the time will come for this too,” TASS quotes him.

    If this is not a fake, then this is the end of the entire Russian civil space industry.

      Does this name bring bad luck? Will the rockets stop flying?
      Or just another reason to cry and sing opposition mantras?

        Yeah, what does Putin, Rogozin have in this case. Well, only indirect. Planned successful (which is not surprising) launch of the satellite of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
        Although, if after some time in Kiev the avenue is named after Shoigu, and the street is named after Gerasimov, I will not mind.

          In this case, direct. The president is the supreme commander. General Roscosmos - manages the enterprises that created this rocket, satellite and launch.
