Cosmos 2435 (Glonass M12), Cosmos 2436 (Glonass M13), and Cosmos 2437 (Glonass M14) are the latest to join the Russian fleet of Glonass navigational satellites. They were launched by a Proton-M booster at 19:32 UT from Baikonur on 25 December 2007. These three bring the total 2007 successful Russian launches to 65 craft, and the total Glonass craft to 18. Similar to the American GPS fleet, Glonass also has separate civilian and military channels, the former enabling position accuracy of about 65 m.
