A Proton-M rocket launched the Telkom 3 and Express MD2 communications satellites on August 6th 2012 at 19:31 UTC.

Telkom 3 will provide 32 C-band and 10 Ku-band transponders for Indonesia communications. Express MD2 will provide 8 C-band and 3 L-band transponders for communications across Russia.

The upperstage Breeze-M failed during the third of four burns. It is expected the satellites are lost.
