Cosmos 2426 is a navigational satellite in the Russian Glonass fleet. Until this launch the fleet consisted of 11 operational craft plus five that were often switched off. The full operational fleet of 24 craft is expected to be completed by 2009 with Cosmos-K models, developed with participation of the Indian Space Agency, ISRO. Though an 18-craft fleet is sufficient for operation in Russia, a fleet of 24 is needed for global coverage. (The usual Cosmos number and Glonass number remain unascertained.)
