To be an actionable "Intel" an information must be analyzed.. which include -waiting- for more information or another Ka-52's having ground resonance. Just seeing vid or image of one Ka-52 having that problem and then make an article extrapolating the problem into the whole fleet of Ka-52 is not "OSINT".

What one can discuss is what happened to that particular Ka-52 ? how many sorties she had ? How's the other Ka-52's ? and of course "Is vibration is the only cause" ?

I've been thinking one or several of the main rotor blades might have been damaged by small arms fire, throwing the whole thing out of balance, causing the vibrations.

But thats just my "OSINT" level of speculation.

It is coming from the rotor, there is a radial vibration , and one of the harmonics pumping energy into the weapon racks.

I don't want to spend more time with the model , or do calculation, but I think the rotor vibrating , maybe on a complex path, due to same deformation , and the wing movement coming from there .

The BREM-1 tank evacuator was created on the basis of the T-72 and was put into service in 1975 and is intended primarily for the evacuation of T-72, T-80 and T-90 tanks. To lift cargo, the BREM-1 is equipped with a swivel crane with a lifting capacity of up to 12 tons. The machine transports various equipment for repair, one of them is an ESA-1 electric welding machine. BREM-1 is armed for self-defense with a NSVT heavy machine gun located on a turret above the commander's hatch, and thermal smoke equipment is an additional means of protection. The 840-horsepower V-84MS engine allows the BREM-1 to reach speeds of up to 60 km / h on the highway. When towing a T-72 tank, the speed on a dirt road does not exceed 10-15 km/h. Currently, there is a modernized version of the BREM-1M, it is being built on the basis of the T-90 tank.

Serial production of the BM-30-D "Spokes" remote-controlled uninhabited combat module for the KamAZ-43269 "Shot" armored car has begun in Russia. The Spica combat module is equipped with a 30 mm 2A42 automatic cannon, a 7.62 mm PKTM machine gun, as well as an AG-30 automatic grenade launcher. The module has a modern sight with television and thermal imaging channels and a laser rangefinder. A lightweight and simplified version of this module without the AG-30 grenade launcher is also installed on the Typhoon Airborne armored car. The Spica combat module will also be installed on other Russian armored vehicles and armored personnel carriers.

The Terminator tank support combat vehicle is designed to operate as part of tank units in order to defeat anti-tank weapons and enemy manpower. The armament of the Terminator BMPT is two 30 mm 2A42 automatic cannons, a 7.62 mm tank machine gun, automatic grenade launchers AG-17D and ATGM Kornet. In terms of protection, the Terminator can be compared with the T-90 tank, and in some ways it surpasses it. For example, it is equipped with a dynamic protection system "Relict". The BMPT is protected from enemy anti-tank melee weapons within 360 degrees. The machine was put into service in 2018.

Russian Navy sub carrying Kalibr cruise missiles to re-enter service soon — source​

It will re-enter the combat inventory of the fourth separate submarine brigade, the source revealed

MOSCOW, May 16. /TASS/. The Project 877V ‘Paltus’ diesel-electric submarine B-871 Alrosa carries Kalibr-PL cruise missiles after its upgrade and will shortly re-enter service with the Black Sea Fleet’s 4th separate submarine brigade, a source in Sevastopol defense circles told TASS on Monday.
"The submarine Alrosa has departed from the 13th Ship Repair Plant and taken up its place at the berth. Its crew will shortly start practicing L-1 and L-2 course tasks, following which it will re-enter the combat inventory of the fourth separate submarine brigade," the source said, adding that the Black Sea Fleet’s oldest submarine had acquired new combat capabilities and was now the carrier of the Kalibr-PL cruise missile system after its repairs and upgrade.
The diesel-electric submarine B-871 ‘Alrosa’ was built at the Krasnoye Sormovo Shipyard in the city of Gorky (now Nizhny Novgorod) and entered service with the Russian Navy on December 1, 1990. The submarine was built under the unique Project 877V that stipulated outfitting the sub with a waterjet engine instead of propeller propulsion, which ensured its maximal stealth.
The submarine operated within the 153rd submarine brigade from December 1990. In March 1992, some crewmembers attempted to seize the submarine after pledging allegiance to Ukraine. The Alrosa was the Russian Black Sea Fleet’s sole operational submarine for 20 years after the Fleet was divided between Russia and Ukraine in June 1993.

In 2014-2017, the Russian Black Sea Fleet received six new Project 636.3 conventional subs outfitted with Kalibr cruise missiles.
