Exploded View of Typical Components of a Zenit-class reconnaissance satellite:. 1 - Power module; 2 - Solar panels; 3 - SA re-entry capsule, which returns film and camera to earth; 4 - Command radio antenna; 5 - Cold gas tanks of the pressurisation/thermal control system; 6 - Radar altimeter; 7 - Equipment module; 8 - Orientation system engine; 9 - Solid rocket motor deorbit engine; 10 - Thermoregulation system radiators; 11 - Equipment frame; 12 - Infrared horizon scanner; 13 - Electrical system umbilical; 14 - Mayak system antennae

Russian military surveillance satellite. 1 Planning began in mid-1967 for military systems to enter service through 1975. Reconnaissance, photo (film return type) satellite built by TsSKB for GRU, Russia. Launched 1968 - 1979. Used Zenit bus.

AKA: 11F690;2KM;FEU-170;Gektor;Gektor, Gektor-Priroda;Gektor-Priroda;Resurs-T;Zenit-2M. Status: Operational 1968. First Launch: 1968-03-21. Last Launch: 1979-08-17. Number: 101 . Gross mass: 6,300 kg (13,800 lb).

These included this improved area survey model of the Zenit-2 reconnaissance satellite, accepted into service in 1970. The special reconnaissance system Ftor-2 of the Zenit-2 was replaced by the more capable system Ftor-2R3.

Typical orbital profile: inclination 65 degrees, 204-288 km alt; inclination 62.8 degrees, 200-294 km alt; inclination 51.8 degrees, 202-256 km alt; inclination 71.3 degrees, 205-316 km alt; inclination 72.8 degrees, 203-312 km alt; inclination 81.3 degrees, 210-232 km alt. Designed duration: 12 days. Transmission frequencies observed in West: 19.995 PDM; 66.2 (Tral).

The Resurs-T designation was applied to both Zenit-2M Gektor-Priroda missions and Zenit-8 cartographic missions with civilian components.
