The original OH-6 Cayuse helicopter proved its worth during the Vietnam War in the light helicopter role.
Combat Aviation - The Kiowa
When the U.S. Combat Outpost Khost in Afghanistan was attacked by insurgents, the Army used the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior to assume tactical superiority and crush the attack. This film, from SSG Robert Ham, puts you in the cockpit of one of the Army's most trusted combat helicopters during a fire fight. The footage is like nothing you've seen.
