    Why are they not equipped with Vikhr missiles?

    Is something wrong with ataka?

    The terrorists in Syria have garbage equipment. For most of their targets, even ataka is overkill.

    Vikhr was used in Chechnya, so it has seen combat.

    As far as I know, there are no videos of Ka-52's using ATGM's or even their 2A42's in Syria.

    My best guess is they are being stockpiled right now and are deemed too valuable to waste in Syria. We know that there was a contract, and that it has been completed. And from the logistics point of view it makes more sense to use Ataka in Syria, as all 4 types of combat helos deployed there could use those.

    The last batch of Vikhr's was purchased prior to 2002 and after that only recently in 2015/2016 started back the production, so the storages are low and they are not starting to deplete them while the Low production is running up just now.

    They still have a shit load of Shturms and Atakas.
