The launch of the Urbot Twu was a success! Military Satellite SA2 "Urbot Twu" entered orbit around 3:32AM after a delay in the launch. Urbot Twu, although the use is classified, is a military satellite which will be used for recon and communications relay. It is the second satellite launched by Crimea Iso (First was Military Satellite SA1 "Urbot Uni").
