Ukrainian military target satellite. The Taifun-1Yu, a modification of the basic design with smooth calibration surfaces, was to be in service by 1980. Launched 1979 - 1996.

AKA: Yug. Status: Operational 1979. First Launch: 1979-12-05. Last Launch: 1996-04-24. Number: 13 . Gross mass: 500 kg (1,100 lb). Height: 2.00 m (6.50 ft). Span: 2.00 m (6.50 ft).

Instead trials were conducted from 1979-1981 and the design was not accepted for military service until 7 February 1983. The basic satellite was spherical in shape and 2.0 m in diameter.
