  Breeze-KM

"The Breeze (Briz) rocket stage apparently originated in the 1980s within a Soviet anti-satellite weapons program designed to carry a "killer" vehicle toward its target in orbit.
 After the end of the Cold War, the propulsion section of the "killer" satellite was converted to a pair of upper stages, which were designated Briz-K and Briz-KM. Both were designed to fit on top of the Rockot launcher, which itself derived from the two-stage UR-100NU ballistic missile. Following three launches of Briz-K from 1990 to 1994, the technical project for Briz-KM was officially approved in 1995 with the initial goal of carrying Iridium satellites, whose launch was ordered by the Motorola company."
