Well then, lets chat about the Havoc...
I wonder if the Havoc will normally carry HERMES missiles operationally, or if it will carry an air launched version of Chrisantema. Certainly based on what has been released about the Mi-28M suggests that it will adopt the ground launched weapon as a standard missile.
I should point out that the Chrisantema missile is MMW radar guided, but not like Hellfire or Brimstone. In many ways Hellfire and Brimstone are active radar homing missiles with their own MMW radar seekers so they are in practical terms fire and forget weapons like AMRAAM.
Chrisantema on the other hand is more like a SARH missile like R-27 or SPARROW as it needs a radar equipped platform to mark the target from launch to impact. Now that is clearly not the same as ARH missiles and is certainly not fire and forget, however with a radar like that fitted to the Mi-28M it makes it possible that several targets could be illuminated at once for potential multi target capability. It also means that potentially the Chrisantema could be used against certain structures that are not distinct targets in MMW radar freqencies like bunkers etc because I would presume that the radar will be linked with the optical and IIR system so it could use a radar beam like a laser beam to mark targets to be hit that a standard MMW radar seeker in a missile could not lock on to. Of course even if it can't do that they can use the optical system to direct a low power laser at any target for the beam riding Chrisantema to fly down and hit.
Remember also that if HERMES is carried it will use terminal homing too so the Havoc will have air to ground fire and forget capability.
The secondary laser beam riding guidance capability also means that all versions of the system might not be fire and forget but can fire on two separate targets at once... though optical visibility is needed for the laser guided weapon it could be in the middle of a dust or snow storm for the radar guided missile and it wouldn't matter.
The advantage of the Chrisanthema is that it will be much cheaper than HERMES and yet offer a flight range of 8kms and armour penetration figures of 1.25m of RHA and that it can be carried in large numbers like the ATAKA which it will replace.
The Hermes has double the range, is more dual purpose with its near 30kg warhead, but will likely only fit 4 to a pylon so will be carried in half the numbers that Chrisantema could be carried in... which should match the similarly sized ATAKA with 8 per pylon.
Those photos of the Ka-52 with pylons carrying 6 tubes for anti tank missiles might have been Chrisantema missiles being tested with the MMW radar fitted in the nose of the Ka-52. It would be a good cheap small missile for both aircraft and other helos in the fleet that have been upgraded with night optics like the Mi-8s.
Now that I look at this photo I have posted myself I can clearly see it says 9M120 on the tube which identifies it as an ATAKA missile.
No doubt however even if they plan to replace the ATAKA in service with Chrisantema the stocks of ATAKA are probably quite large as most of the Hind force used them plus they were standard weapons for the Ka-29 assault helix and for use in quad packs on some suitably fitted Mi-8s... they would have been bought in large numbers because they were cheap yet accurate and able to be used at up to 6km against all sorts of point targets.
Likely ATAKA will continue in production for export as Chrisantema will require a MMW radar which export Hinds were not fitted for. I guess soon we will see a new Hind upgrade able to use laser beam riding missiles so it can fire Chrisantema.
