The Bell OH-58 Kiowa is a family of single-engine, single-rotor, military helicopters used for observation, utility, and direct fire support. Bell Helicopter manufactured the OH-58 for the United States Army based on its Model 206A JetRanger helicopter. The OH-58 has been in continuous use by the U.S. Army since 1969. The latest model, the OH-58D Kiowa Warrior, is primarily operated in an armed reconnaissance role in support of ground troops. The OH-58D introduced the most distinctive feature of the Kiowa family the Mast Mounted Sight (MMS), which resembles a beach ball perched above the rotor system. The MMS by Ball Aerospace & Technologies has a gyro-stabilized platform containing a TeleVision System (TVS), a Thermal Imaging System (TIS), and a Laser Range Finder/Designator (LRF/D). These new features gave the aircraft the additional mission capability of target acquisition and laser designation in both day or night, and in limited-visibility and adverse weather.

Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior

Originally developed for the US Army's Light Observation Helicopter program, the Bell D-250 first flew on December 8, 1962. When the D-250 failed to make the final cut for the Army's program, Bell redesigned the airframe, added 16 cubic feet of cargo space and marketed the upgraded version commercially as the Bell 206A JetRanger. The new design was reconsidered by the Army in 1968, which commissioned it as the OH-58 Kiowa. Today it is used by both the Army and the Navy as a primary trainer, and it remains popular with the news media as a traffic and reporting aircraft.
