After the ascent unit containing the SES-3 spacecraft, the KazSat-2 SC and the Breeze M were integrated to the launch vehicle, the next step was to apply the thermal blanket to the now integrated launch vehicle, which provides a stable environment for our 2 sensitive payloads.  Once complete, the delicate operation of transferring the enormous rocket to the transporter was performed, and the huge machine was slowly moved via rail to the Breeze M fueling station where fueling took place over the course of the next two days.
