The "Proton-M" launch vehicle, used to launch the "Yamal-601" satellite in the interests of Gazprom Space Systems, today, on April 24, was transported from the Khrunichev Space Center in Moscow to the Baikonur cosmodrome. Th train with components of the "Proton-M" launch vehicle (three stages of the launch vehicle, upper stage, transitional system for spacecraft installation and head fairing) arrived at the Tyura-Tam train station of the cosmodrome and after passing through customs formalities was transported to the technical complex "Proton". The "Yamal-601" satellite was manufactured by the French company Thales Alenia Space France according to the order of Gazprom Space Systems for the renovation and development of the Russian orbital "Yamal" group. The "Yamal-60" satellite will replace the "Yamal-202" satellite in orbit and will provide fixed-line communications and data services in the C-band for a large part of Russia, as well as in the CIS and Europe , Middle East and Southeast Asia.
