    Wiki saying it will be heabier than the K, but still lighter than the current GPS satelites.

    Expected life is 10 years ,vs current GPS 15 years.

    BS. Current Russian satellites are designed for 15 year lifespans. The 10 years claim is a relic of the days when
    Soviet satellites still used pressurized compartments that would eventually leak out.

    Indeed. For some reason NATO-tards think Russians and Russia have no capacity for science and technological development.
    Given all the hate propaganda in the western media against Russia, I attribute this to simple racism. Russians are too white
    to ignore but not white enough to treat as equals.

    Plus they are Christian, socially conservative, desire their nation to be independent and sovereign, and most don't accept the BS notion that one man sticking his bell end in the rear of another dude is a natural activity.... Proud to declare I'm with the Ruskies on this one...
