REF KA-52 Hokum RuAF.

For consideration please change:

KA-52 pre 2015 remove 12 X Vikhr loads and replace with 12 X Ataka AT-9 Spiral 2 (Laser command guided variant).
Add L-370-5 Vitebsk suite.
(The length difference between Vikhr and Ataka is obvious when seen side by side)

KA-52 post 2016 add 12 x Vikhr-1/M.

Note:

6 x (APU-6 pylon) for AT-9 Spiral 2 (9M120-1) (Laser command guided variant of Ataka V). Note the two rows of three missiles of the APU-6.
The KA-52 initial production and deployed aircraft were fitted with the Shturm VK fire control system using the Ataka 9M120-1 ATGW.
The KBP web site > https://www.kbm.ru/en/production/ptrk/358.html

Vikhr pylon has two tubes over a row of four.

Despite initially being armed with the first incarnation of the Vikhr the KA-50 was only equipped with the Vikhr for a limited deployment and trials,
and the KA-52 was NOT initially armed with the Vikhr missile.


Vikhr production stopped due to cost in the 90's and restarted again in 2013 with the Vikhr-1/M.
Only post 2015 when production issues were resolved were the most recent KA-52's likely to be using Vikhr - 9K121 missiles.
Latest production is likely to be the Vikhr M system using the upgraded Vikhr-1 missile.

Note the most recent Vikhr-M has a revised launch tube with a simplified flat ended tube rather than the sloped oval end of the original Vikhr tube.

The Vikhr-M/1 missile has been mis-identified as the Hermes in some articles(it has obvious family lineage).
