The OH-58 Kiowa was an observation, utility and direct fire support helicopter developed by Bell Helicopter in the 1960Ős. This single-seat, US Army chopper was powered by a single turbo-shaft engine with a four-blade propeller. Modified with high-tech avionics systems, the OH-58 was one of the most efficient scout helicopters in the world. This chopper was also fortified with a Mast Mounted Sight (MMS) system, which helped in finding targets at low-light situations. The Kiowa Warrior has seen action since Vietnam War and in other conflicts all over the world like in Afghanistan and Iraq. The standard OH-58 is equipped with guns and some, with provisions for more ammunition.
