Cover of Newly Discovered Soviet Space Program Report Series
Cover of Soviet document "Cosmic Spaceship: 'Apollo VII' Flight Plans." Issued in early October 1968, this document--that appears to have been derived from technical intelligence collection--not only describes what was going to happen on the first manned Apollo orbital mission, but also contains detailed assessments of what the mission would achieve, particulars about the spacecraft and rocket, as well as an extrapolation of future manned Apollo missions.
