Here's my guess on 'who is what' based on a statement in
http://www.iki.rssi.ru/interball.html
in which I understand to mean that the main craft (Interbol-2) will
lead the subsatellite (Magion-5) by about an additional 12 km each orbit.
Of course the designations are contrary to normal assignment.
I guess we may have to wait until Tueday, 3 Sept to find out from OIG.
Sept 2 is a holiday here in the US.
