    TASS: the Russian army received the first 10 modernized combat helicopters Ka-52M

    Russian troops received the first models of the upgraded Ka-52M attack and reconnaissance helicopters, TASS reported, citing a source in the military-industrial complex.
    About 10 vehicles were handed over to the Army Aviation.
    The first Ka-52Ms have already been handed over to the Russian troops. Deliveries of upgraded vehicles will also continue in 2023.

    If everything was fully implemented in this upgrade program it will be one of the most sophisticated and dangerous helicopters ever made. When you add to this its sensor suite and vikhr and article 305 missiles and defense systems and complex comms network and datalinks for drones and fighters and command centers... only the Apache stands alongside it.

    I believe that the objective is that the Ka-52M and Mi-28NM helicopters do all the work on the front lines and that a substitute for the Su-25 is not necessary, which would explain the large increase in the number of helicopter units that are foresees (one helicopter brigade for each Combined Arms Army)

    A future high speed helicopter would be the best replacement for the Su-25.

    One regiment has 3 squadrons of 12 - 16 helicopters.
    A brigade should have 4 squadrons.

    A future high speed helicopter would be the best replacement for the Su-25.
    That model has an internal weapons bay for up to 8 Izd. 305 (LMUR) missiles

    Helicopter units are called Army Aviation because they support the Army however they belong to the Air Force. Some units are based at one airfield while others may be stationed at 2 or more. As Hole mentioned, the difference was to be 3 versus 4 squadrons with total aircraft from 60-80 including UAV's that required runway lift over. Brigades were to support Military Districts and Regiments to support Combined Arms Armies. Units / Locations / Supporting:

    - 15th Army Aviation brigade - Ostrov (Western / 76th ABD)
    - 16th Army Aviation brigade - Zernograd (Southern / 7th ABD)
    - 17th Army Aviation brigade - Kamensk-Uralsky (Central /2nd CAA/90th TD)
    - 18th Army Aviation brigade - Khabarovsk (Eastern /35th CAA/68th AC)
    - 39th Army Aviation regiment - Djankoi (Crimea)
    - 55th Army Aviation regiment - Korenovsk (49th/8th CAA)
    - 337th Army Aviation regiment - Tolmachevo (41st CAA)
    - 378th Army Aviation regiment - Vyazma (20th CAA/ 1st TA)
    - 412th Army Aviation regiment - Cheryomushki (29th/36th CAA)
    - 487th Army Aviation regiment - Budennovsk (58th CAA)
    - 549th Army Aviation regiment - Pushkin (6th CAA)
    - 575th Army Aviation regiment - Chernigovka (5th CAA)

    - 575th Army Aviation regiment - Chernigovka (5th CAA)

    at the moment there is no real brigade since all the helicopter units have 3 squadrons at most, plus some incomplete Mi-26 units
    What was proposed in 2013-2014 when the reform of the Air Force began is still halfway
    The Ka-52, Mi-28, Mi-8AMTSh squadrons have 20 helicopters in theory, although not all of them were complete before the Special Military Operation.

    Also is confused the  previous names: "Aviation Base" (AvB) was before the "regiment" designation, when they did not have 3 squadrons but only two

    the current names:
    440th OVP "Separate Helicopter Regiment" , former 378th AvB "Aviation Base" - Vyazma
    332nd OVP "Separate Helicopter Regiment" , former 549th AvB "Aviation Base" - Pushkin & Pribylovo
    319th OVP "Separate Helicopter Regiment" ,  former 575th AvB "Aviation Base"  - Chernigovka

    About the locations, are mixed with names of airfields:
    Cheryomushki is the airfield, the city is Chita
    Tolmachevo is the larger airport of Novosibirsk
    Pushkin airfield in St Petersburg city and Pribylovo is in Leningrad oblast

    in the same way:
    Veretya airfield in Ostrov
    Dvoyevka airfield in Vyazma
    Travyany airfield in Kamensk-Uralsk
    etc...
