    At first sight this looks more like a Molniya communications satellite
    orbit than the one used by satellites in the Oko early-warning system
    (they're the ones which are normally assigned Cosmos numbers). The
    argument of perigee for a semi-synchronous Cosmos satellite is usually
    around 315 degrees.
