On September 8, 2010 the Space Forces conducted a successful launch of a Rockot space launcher with Briz-KM booster stage, which delivered to orbit three communication satellites. The launch took place at 07:30 MSK (03:30 UTC) from the launch pad No. 3 of the launch complex No. 133 at Plesetsk. The spacecraft delivered into orbit are communication satellites Gonets-M, Strela-3 (17F13) and Strela-3M (17F132). The two Strela-3 satellites were designated Cosmos-2467 and Cosmos-2468.

The satellites, which received NORAD catalog numbers 37152, 37153, and 37254 and international designations 2010-043A, 2010-043B, and 2010-043C, were deployed in nearly circular orbits with altitude of about 1500 km, inclination of 82.5 degrees, and orbital period of about 116 minutes.

The satellites were deployed in the same orbital plane that is occupied by satellites launched in the previous launch, which took place in July 2009. That launch also involved satellites of both 17F13 and 17F132 type. The first launch of a Gonets-M satellite took place on 21 December 2005. Gonets-M appears to be a civilian version of the Strela-3M satellites (sometimes also known as Rodnik).
