We have now had two launches, each with three Gonets-D satellites and 
three Cosmos (Strela-3) satellites: 1996-009A-F and 1997-006A-F.

Has anyone - on the basis of telemetry or other sources - been able to 
deduce which of the satellites are the Gonets-D payloads and which are 
the military Cosmos Stela-3 satellites ?
