    http://orbit.m6.net/Forum/default.aspx?g=posts&m=192345 has some good images 
    of the launcher
    
    .........and an interesting comment about the Breeze M stage
    
    " presumably bound for an unplanned reentry from a 51.5 deg inclined orbit, 
    could have more than 16 tonnes of toxic hypergolic propellant still aboard."
