It seems like there are R-73 first then Karen. Also on the other side you can see different type of missle. Doesn't this affect the weight balance?

Aha,

I've seen this pic in a lot of articles of the KA-52 dating back to mid 1997 (Air International credits the photographer as Aleksei Mikheyev).

The publicity pictures are Karmov showing off the future multi-role capability. From left to right: R-73/AA-11 Archer (A2A), AS-12 Kegler (ATG), Kh-25MP (or L?) and the Vikhr. And that doesn't cover half the possible stores capability.

Doctrine combat loads are usually symetrical.

FWIW
