The OH-58D Kiowa Warrior is a recon helicopter for the United States in the Wargame series, it first appeared in Wargame: European Escalation.

HistoryEdit

OH-58D Kiowa Warrior is the armed version of the OH-58D Kiowa. The main difference that distinguishes the Kiowa Warrior from the original AHIP aircraft is a universal weapons pylon found mounted on both sides of the aircraft. These pylons are capable of carrying combinations of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles, air-to-air Stinger (ATAS) missiles, 7-shot 2.75 in (70 mm) Hydra-70 rocket pods, and an M2 .50 caliber machine gun.

On 30 November 1979 instead of developing a newer scout Helicopter, the near term scout helicopter (NTSH) porgram was started to modify airframe already in service. OH-58 was chosen. In early 1988, it was decided that armed OH-58D (AHIP) helicopters from the 118th Aviation Task Force would be phased in to replace the SEABAT (AH-6/MH-6) teams of Task Force 160th to carry out Operation Prime Chance, the escort of oil tankers during the Iran–Iraq War.  With the experience of Operation Prime Chance, Secretary of the Army directed instead that the aircraft's armament systems be upgraded, based on experience with Task Force 118's performance operating armed OH-58D helicopters in the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Prime Chance, and that the aircraft be used primarily for scouting and armed reconnaissance. The plan was that OH-58D serve as the hunter with the AH-64 serving as the killer in the Hunter Killer Team.

OverviewEdit

European EscalationEdit

AirLand BattleEdit

A very solid example of a hunter-killer unit, this small mobile recon heli combines exceptional optics with the deadly and precise Hellfire ATGM. Micromanagement is highly recommended on a unit like the Kiowa Warrior. Paying attention to its line of sight, vulnerability to AA, and weapon state is important or else it will not be able to fire at targets it cannot see, will be shot down by AA relatively quickly due to its fragility and scarce amount of Hellfire missiles onboard.
